our calling

Anyone missing a car mat?

I am well aware of the fact that we are long overdue for a Sherman the Scavenger update. But this was just too good to wait to include in our typical monthly photo collage of water bottles and mittens and beer cans. This deserves a post all to itself. Sherm found this lovely car mat on our walk this morning and carried it for about 45 minutes. We got some of our best stares yet. I am honestly surprised we didn't cause a multiple car pile up. Jaws were dropped. Mouths were wide open. Noses were scrunched up. Heads were cocked to one side. ALL eyes were on us.

I feel our calling to start up a reality tv show is growing stronger by the day. A good wholesome family show. Trash vs. Treasure. A healthy mix between Gold Rush ... and Hoarders.

Happy hump trash day friends!
{It really is our neighborhood trash day today, btw.}

  1. Luckily it is only a back seat one and not a huge front seat one. Just sayin.

  10. So that photo is adorable :) Our "little" guy doesn't bring much home, his attention span isn't long enough for that... but he did spend a block or two walking around with around with an empty doritos bag over his nose.

  17. Every time Sloan and I pass a piece of trash on our walks I remind her that Sherman is a MUCH better world-citizen than her. Love Sherm the Scavenger!

  18. Ha!! So funny! I'm sure he had a lot of fun though. I had a basset hound growing up, and one time he found a package of steaks and dropped it on our back steps and just looked at us like...look what I brought you. The package was still sealed and everthing. We found out our neighbors had cleaned out their broken deep freezer, and our pup must have though he scored gold. At least he was thinking of us :)

  21. Sherman really is the best dog in the whole world. I wish everyone could read your posts about him, and marvel in his greatness. I would watch that tv show, and that's saying a lot, because we don't really watch tv.

  22. I love it!! Dogs are so gross...Max always picks things up too, but not fun things like this. He's more into people's used kleenexes, empty plastic baggies, and discarded flyers.

    And for the record, I would totally watch your reality show! Ha.

  23. I would totally watch that!

    Hugs!

  25. HILARIOUS. I was having the worst day until I read this, HA, it has just cheered me right up! I wish our dog did things like this, instead he wakes me up at 5.30am because he wants to go walkies.

  26. Walter doesn't pick trash up when I take him for walks...but he does all of a sudden have to poop A LOT...like in every other yard!!! It's crazy.

  27. I think Sherman should be one of those dogs who finds criminals that have escaped or missing persons. But then he might get mad if he can't carry them around in his mouth. I heart you n Sherm!

  28. OMG I am dying!!! Sherman with the car mat for 45 minutes!!! I'm trying not to make a scene at my desk but this is hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  29. hahaha this is just too good... You've got my vote for the reality TV show. I want to see Sherman in action.

    ReplyDelete
  30. It just keeps getting better and better! Sherm is such a master! You probably should start your own show! Plus with Dan and all of his hobbies, you would always have new material!

  31. AHHAHA Shermannnn.. I love seeing dogs caring something so proudly in their mouths walking down the road with their owners.. but a car floor mat is something new altogether. Way to go Sherman! LOL
