Today Sherman got his first taste of fame. Unfortunately, his new-found celebrity status comes tinged with false accusations and misinformation.
While spending his days with Caitlin at work, Sherman has become a favorite of Poppy regulars and their bored boyfriends. His cult following among the fashionable Nolita set came to the attention of the staff at Racked and he was featured as one of the blog's "Store Sidekicks."
While Sherman certainly enjoys the recognition, he has learned quickly that fame has its drawbacks. The Racked reporter got his breed wrong, referring to him as an American Huskie mix when, in fact, Sherman is of proud American Eskimo lineage. Most egregious, though, was the implication that Sherman has a history of chemical dependency. Speculating about his origin, the Racked reporter wrote, "Caitlin, found him online, drunk, while watching the presidential election."
Since the post, Sherman has been keeping a low profile and even canceled a scheduled appearance at the Tompkins Square dog park. He has yet to speak publicly about his alleged puppy alcoholism.
(Sherman would like to thank Jessica for her unending support).
