Today we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of this website
If one person has appreciated this work, then I am satisfied. is 20 years old today. The growth of the website over the last 20 years is only a small part of what has evolved in the Shep community during that time. Eugene Bergmann has published several books and a play about Shep. We have had several conferences at the FOTR convention thanks to Max Schmid who has also contributed his talents on the radio, replaying old Shep shows and providing a wide selection of audio tapes for sale. Yahoo groups brought the fans together in a sometimes heated chat group, and when things settled down there were all the Shepfests to sit down, drink, eat, and share stories about Shep. The most popular Christmas movie has played on TBS for the 24 hour maraton for it's 22nd year and has become a stage play and a major Musical. And the list goes on. I would like to personally thank each and every one of you who have enjoyed this site over the years for visiting and spreading the word, and to those who contributed over the years to help build the content and unravel some of the mysteries of our hero. Thank you everyone for coming Excelsior, you fatheads! Jim
