Not wanting to hijack another thread (meant to be half-way humerous and really objecting to the sheepdog label)
While the sheepdog moniker is accurate when describing people as sheep. Being a cowpoke, sheepherders in the old days were at best hated by us. In fact my biggest objection of that Brokeback mountain was when I saw the previews I realized they were sheepherders. I was more offended at the idea they were calling sheepherders cowboys than a couple of guys cheating on their wives with each other. Just a point of reference.
While Raaven had a good suggestion with the cowdog suggestion, back when our forefathers were on the trail the guys that watched over the herd at night were known as night riders.
While I realize as a point of reference using the sheepdog on this site would be easier, I just need to swallow my pride harder

I would still rather be the herder and not the sheepdog.

What kind of dog am I?
I used to be a Devildog, so is a sheepdog a step up or down?

I never had much use for sheep myself, Had a Cow dog that developed the taste for the Neighbors mutton though. That didn't help Neighbor relations much.

The use of the words, sheeple, wolves & sheeple-dogs is the the easiest way to break down society.
Everybody falls into one of those categories, that does not say you can't change from one category to another, but you are only in one at a time, depending on the topic.
As to preventing harm on another person(s), I know which category I fall into. Try this on everybody you meet, it will give you a good insight into the real world.
I practice this all the time, along with watching people to see what condition they are in (i.e...white, yellow..etc).

It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.
