A Story...by Sherman

Hey Doggies (and GG)...you may want to get comfortable. I have a little story to tell ya. Grab a bone and a cool spot on the floor and enjoy.

So we have this little tear in the screen on our back door. You may recall this is not the only broken screen this house has seen & Dad just keeps rigging it so bugs really don't get in but it keeps coming loose.

So Saturday, Lola & I were chillin at home with Dad while Mom & Penny were doing girly stuff.

Dad was playing video games (it's OK Dad, you can admit it) when he saw a hairy fat rodent walk into the kitchen toward the back door. He jumped up and screamed "WTF???" and it woke me up. He tried to run after the varment but I pushed him out of the way and took control of the situation. I cornered the little bugger and he went like this!

Dad & Lola were huddled on top of the dining room table and I grabbed the stupid rat thing and shook in hard. It tried to bite me many, MANY times but I was too quick. I threw it to the ground and stomped on it with my giant Sherman feet and then bit it in the head again. I crunched down hard and it went "EEEeeekkk!" and then I crunched it all over it's body till it was dead.

Dad got down from the table and said "Thank you Sherman, I was wondering what we were going to have for lunch. You sure do earn your keep around here".

Yes Sir...I certainly do.

The End.


We really did have a Possum in our house on Sunday. Looks like a Rat, huh???

But Sniffy McSnifferton didn't even wake up. Scott got the Dogs upstairs and the little thing outside went back outside. When I asked Scott what happened to it, he said "I took care of it". To which I replied..."Where did you find a Have-A-Heart trap???"

I don't wanna know.

TAPhillips said...

Yay Sherman! Humans always wanna take the credit when we capture stuff like that, don't they?

Wuf Ya! Gomer & OPie

PS We're glad we've never seen a oppossum!

Mud Monster & DWB said...

Boo said...

Tasha & Eva said...

We definately believe Sherman's story. We know that humans are wimps and would be too scared to do anthing about it.


Lorenza said...

I believe you because you are so brave and you are your family protector!
Why they don't want to give your credit??
Have a good night

The Brat Pack said...

Sherman, we don't know why your Dad is trying to steal your thunder. I know you were the savior of the day cuz you are sooo manly and macho.


PS Mom can't stop laughing.

We had a possum in our house once. We went *CRAZY* chasing it and trying to get under dad's bed to get it. It threw a hissy fit. Tank lept over the queen sized bed without even touching it - back and forth as the possum tried to hide. Eventually dad threw us all out, opened the back door and we never saw it again. You were brave to tackle it by yourself!

Cubby said...

All right Sherman! You can never believe humans. They exagggerate, so!

Joe Stains said...

Sherman, you are my hero. I believe every word of what you say and can even picture your dad on that table shaking like a LEAF. GOOD JOB!

Texas's Mum said...

Love and Licks

leah said...

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! that looks SO SCARY! i'm so glad you were there to save your dad and lola's lives! we all know the truth -- your dad just wanted to look macho for your mom by telling her that silly story about you sleeping! the shermanator is now officially the rodent exterminator... or would it be the sherexterminator?!

Simba said...

That thing looks evil, look at the teeth on him. You are my hero.

wally said...

Sherman--I believe your story. But I bet that thing was at least 8 feet long and 300 pounds. I'm sure you saved your family from sure death. Good job, Sherms.

Hey Sherman, What a good story. I'm sure that's what WOULD have happened if you'd been awake! J x

coco said...

that was the most gripping story i've ever read. ohmyDOG you are so fierce and courageous, sherman - what would your dad have done without you??? i'm soooo glad you didn't get hurt by that awful ugly thing!!!!!! and you protected your family like the mother of all guardians. (well, ok, father)

i'm pretty sure this is the last you will be seeing of that filthy varmint. as for your dad, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. don't ask, don't tell is the best policy on such topics.

you are my new hero, coco

Eeeuks! Nasty possum! I think I would be up at the dining table too. You are so brave, Sherman! Muacks!


fig said...

Why is your mom lying about you, Sherman? She sounds like my girl who told everyone that I didn't even notice when there was a mouse caught in a trap in our kitchen. Liars. I know you viciously killed him to keep your family safe, just like I caught that mouse myself and stuck it in the trap. The things we have to put up with....

Tadpole said...

I hate to admit it, but I would have screamed like an adolescent girl and ran far, far away.

My girl keeps laughing and laughing and laughing....

Poppy said...

Wow Sherman, you are so manly. We have spiders inside sometimes. Can we hire you to come scare them away?

Lola wanted to know about my sweater. Tell her that in northern California where we live, summertime at the beach is all about sweaters and blankets and fog. That's why I had to wear my super-cool sweater at the beach the other day. :)


Frasypoo said...

I laughed so hard I cried !!!
In your house ?....an actual live possum !!!!
Man! Thats crazy!Glad you got it before it made a beeline towards your dinner

rpm said...

Oh my goodness....I would have loved to seen the chaos that would have errupted had all the doggies seen that thing in the house!

Balboa & Mommy said...

I think your mom is lying, she is jealous of your bravery and cunning hunting skills.

Bravo dude!

Hey Sherman,
You are so brave!!! We get those ugly opossum in our yard quite often. But so far none have come into the house, hehehehe! We have had raccoon scratch & knock on our front door trying to get in, seriously! Don't know why they would want in though. Since you are so brave, you would be a good helper for guarding our koi fish, especially Koi Sherman! Koi Sherman has changed colors. His big orange spot on top of his head is gone, but he still has his bullseye spot on his side. Keep up the good guard duty!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
