coining a term: #1

Sheepdog: (n) a person who, under the guise of "giving advice," tries to talk you out of what you really want. Common arguments include, but are not limited to: a) "you just don't understand how things are done," b) "I know better than you do," c) "your taste blows," &/or d) "have I ever mentioned that you're a complete imbecile?" Can sense wedding plans intuitively, and are likely to mulitply faster than just-out-of-Catholic-school rabbits in heat due to their resulting excitement. Name derives from an uncontrollable compulsion to lead you, most often in a direction in which you have NO desire to go.
