Sherman we miss you so much. You inspire us. Everywhere we go we are reminded of the wonderful times we had with you. Life with you was always a gift. You had a happy life and enriched ours. The pizza man misses you too. There were so many wonderful times at Nod Brook and Stratton Brook Park. You always led us over Sherman's Hope Bridge in that park. You will live forever on the website named

lead to cures. LOVE, Mark, Grammie & Grandpa
Good Morning Little Puppy. I remember the day Mark called and said he was choosing you for his best friend from Bideawee in New York City. The first time I met you it was love a first sight at Tudor City Place. Mark said you jumped for joy from the couch to the bed when he got you home. No crate for you! Mark said you remembered the person who walked you at Bideawee and when you saw him you gave him a warm greeting.
Good morning Little Puppy. I remember when you came to Connecticut in 1999. We all had so much fun with you at Nod Brook. There you would run like the wind off leash, jump in the water to cool off in the summer, then run all over the place, sniff, dig and play with the other dogs. People would say what a happy dog you were. Sometimes you would sneak over the bank out of sight for a dip in the Farmington River. Fortunaately you came back when we called you. We went many times in all seasons. You would bark loudly as we approached the area in anticipation. You were so happy when you found a sliced old tennis ball. That was a treasure for you, not any fancy toys. Sherman: ADVENTUROUS PLAYFUL SPEEDSTER
Good Morning Little Puppy. We took so many walks to Stratton Brook, Iron Horse Blvd., McLean Game Refuge
Hi Little Puppy. I went for a walk today and I missed you so much. The tears kept coming. You are still my best friend and always will be in my heart. Sherman: SOFT AND WHITE LONG EXPRESSIVE TAIL LIGHT AND DARK BLACK SPOTS ALMOND EYES FLOPPY EARS CUTE BLACK NOSE
Hi Little Puppy. We worked so hard on our website http://www.stemcellwatchdog.com. We want to be a tribute to you. You brought sunshine into our lives and we always think of you.

Hello Little Puppy. Some have asked me if I would like another dog. I could never imagine another dog. You are in my heart forever.
Hi Little Puppy. You were a very good neighbor. You never went pee pee or pooped on the neighbors' property. They always saw you out and about in all kinds of weather. You were very dapper in your red coat, red leash and collar. The kids next door baked us cookies and drew picture to cheer us up. The other neighbors sent beautiful cards. They loved you too. Sherman: VERY GOOD NEIGHBOR
Hi Little Puppy. Dee and Joe came over and asked about you. They liked you very much. Joe said you were part of the neighborhood. I know they will miss you. They were very kind to us and brought gifts which helped to make us feel better. We love you and think of you all the time. Sherman: REMEMBERED AND LOVED
Hi Beautiful Boy. Today we put handsome pictures of you on display. We put one by the computer. We remember how you would climb up onto the green chair and keep us company while we worked.

Sherman: MISSED AND FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS

Hi Beautiful Boy! This is the time of year when Ira Nozik came to take formal photographs of you. He brought in his table, lights and puppets. Did you stay on the table? NO! Did you sit still in the chair? NO! Grandpa had to hold you and I worked puppets behind the photographer! Somehow we got some nice shots of you to have forever. The livingroom was in chaos and Ira was flat on the couch. What did you do? You came on Ira's lap and gave him a big wet kiss! Ira was charmed by you as we all were. This photo above is one of those great pictures of our reluctant model! Sherman: FUNNY FUNNY LOVABLE DOG!
Hi Beautiful Boy! It is snowing out and you would not like this weather. I am happy that you had a joyous life full of fun and mischief.

Hi Beautiful Boy! The other day Mark and Grammie were at the Flower Bridge in Simsbury. The sun was out then there was a little shower. Lo and behold appeared a beautiful rainbow. It was as if you were there looking over us. We have a new friend in our family named Bella. She became a member of our family because she is so much like you! She is black and cute and sweet and funny. She is busy learning her manners and happy to find a home like you did with the three of us. We know you would approve and we talk about you all the time and you are in our hearts forever. Sherman: OUR TRUE INSPIRATION!
Hi Beautiful Boy! It is almost fall 2013! Soon the raking will begin. Your little sister, Bella is doing well. She does not like having her nails cut and has some fears to overcome. We are going to do them ourselves because she knows us! Wish us luck from up there. We love you with all our hearts! We miss you so. We wish you were here to show Bella that we will keep her safe like we did you.
Hi Beautiful Boy! The leaves are all down. Everything is brown. Soon there will be snow and blustery days. Your warm heart and great spirit will keep us warm in the winter. you loved the fireplace and your favorite chair. We think of you every day and you are in our hearts forever. Your photo is by the computer and in the living room. We remember your session with Ira Nozik? What a scream! You kissed him after the photo shoot was over and he was your friend! Sherman: OUR LOVE FOREVER!
Hi Beautiful Boy! We miss you so much! We think of you every day and wish you were here. You are the best dog ever! I wish we fed you Origen instead of Eukanuba! I wish you were in my arms as you passed on to the Rainbow Bridge! I know you forgive us and that you had a great life. Sherman: THE BEST DOG EVER!
Hi Beautiful Boy! It is hard to believe that you went to the Rainbow Bridge two years ago. We miss you so! You are responsible for saving a life. We adopted Bella because we miss you so much. She is a very good girl and makes us think of you all the time. We are very firm with her because she was a spicy meatball when we got her. It was a very cold winter here in Connecticut with a Polar Vortex breaking off from up north. We hope it is warmer on the Rainbow Bridge. Bella is a black version of you! She doesn't go to the meadow like you did because right now we are afraid to let her off leash. Sherman: YOU ARE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER!
Hi Beautiful Boy! You are my best friend! Sherman: MY TRUE LOVE,GRAMMIE

Hi Beautiful Boy! The 2014 holidays are over. It is icy outside and 28 degrees. You are in our thoughts every day and every time we go to Stratten Brook we think of you and go over the red covered bridge that you loved so much!

Just know that you brought so much purpose and joy into our lives and inspired to help Bella to have a good life in your footsteps. Sherman: IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER!
