And that is the reality, there are sheep, wolves, sheepdogs and dogs and not every dog is a sheepdog. And not every dog even has any idea what it is to be a sheepdog. So when someone who has never been a cop or a soldier claims to be a sheepdog...
I'm thinking more like "there are sheep, wolves, sheepdogs and sheep who think they are dogs...until a wolf shows up."
