I like it. ;-)
And Spock senses more humor as some readers... ;-)
*smile* I'm glad you liked the story! I loved having Spock know all about German Shepherds, because of course Spock knows everything. :-)
And yes, one particular reader has been going through all of my stories and (deliberately?) misunderstanding them. Thank heavens there are people like you to take the bad taste of that out of my mouth. ;-) Thank you!

You offered a very interesting perspective! Spock's logic is sound, and he yet again shows his wisdom in not taking offense and seeing positive sides. Be well :)
*smile* Thanks, Mightymads! I'm glad you enjoyed this little ficlet, and I appreciate your taking the time to leave a review. And thanks for the good wishes on my health; I hope you are well, too.

Hopefully he will not also be suffer from hip and elbow dysplasia, terrible heart disease , peri-anal fistula, and bloat, like German Shepherd of my mother!
I think I have a problem with your fundamental premis. I do not mean to nit-pick or be mean but it is not just sheep with a shepherd. Also goats! (Joke!) Also, people (my point). To "shepherd" some one is to look after them. It descriptors the person doing the shepherding. It does not describe the person who being looked after. Nor does it assign them as 'sheep'. Or designate to them any sheep-like attributes.
For this reason, I find this Spock's comments to be illogical. That is why I give only a few stars. Excusez-moi.
Protect Kirk is exactly what the work is that Spock does and Spock would recognize and see a most accurate descriptor in ' Shepherd Kirk' .
I believe that you have lost your sense of humor somewhere and should go look for it right away! :-)
Sorry to hear that the story didn't work for you, but it was not intended anywhere near as seriously as you're taking it...

I enjoyed this short piece immensely. It's true we often hear Spock compared to a cat, but never a dog. A German Shepherd is a perfect choice. Plus, they do seem to have something else in common. Those pointy ears...
*smile* Thanks, hon! I really appreciate your taking the time to leave a review of such a short piece.
I do see some of the reasons why people compare Spock to a cat, but every time it happens, I think, "But the LOYALTY! You don't get that in a cat, only in a dog." And Spock is so very hard-working -- he's about as far from a creature that sleeps most of the day as I can imagine. :-)
Yes, the pointy ears are undoubtedly part of what started the animal comparisons to begin with. Though I think Vulcans are much more like elves. Not Santa's elves -- more like Tolkein's elder-brother type of elves. Probably another story at some point. :-)
Have a wonderful holiday!
