G if for Greater Swiss Mountain Dog

This is what Sherman looked like on the day we brought him home. He was about twelve weeks old and already weighed 25 pounds. He is now four years old and weighs in at 150 pounds.

We also have two kitties and they learned very quickly how handle Sherman regardless of size. Biscuit is actually still top dog in this house.

Sherman at six months old in the woods behind our house. This has always been one of my favorite pictures of Sherman.

Sherman likes to take time to smell the flowers.

The best thing about Sherman is that he is always there to be a friend.

A SWISSY!! We have an almost-2-year-old Swissy named Thea. They are such great dogs! If you aren't familiar with it, check out www.greaterswissdotcom.com. It's a forum of Swissy owners and a great resource for questions and information. Sherman is absolutely gorgeous!! I have no doubt he is an amazing wonderful loving family dog!
