Three Border Collies demonstrate their sheep herding skills with some ducks, that were kind enough to fill in for the sheep, who had the day off.

My sister's bearded collie liked to herd her and her 2 children into a corner of the kitchen. They'd had him as a puppy so he'd no experience as a working dog!

I grew up on a farm and we had a border collie, even after we lost all our sheep. She had 9 pups and one day -- with no training - they decided to herd the barn cats. I had to call them off before the cats got too obstreperous.

My neighbor had a BC and every time I went in the back yard she would bark. I would go over and pet her through the fence and then she was happy. Herding cats bet that w as fun to watch.

We have Border Collies who move the sheep. DH uses a whistle, like they did in the video and he can also use voice commands. The sheep are so used to them that sometimes they will do what the whistle says as if the dog was there. One of our dogs has diabetes and is blind and we are trying to get the diabetes under control so that she can have the cataracts removed and see again. This is an extremely expensive thing (no medical insurance for dogs and vets cost more than mds) and some say we should put her down, but we cannot because we love her and if we can get her sight back, we will find the money somehow. KPers will pray for Meg. She is a wonderful dog. MN

My cousins had a sheep farm ( and a dog called Meg) . I spent one summer as a child trying to learn to whistle. As an adult we had a BC, Jock, & with a bought whistle he would always return to 2 blasts, even if he was out of sight. If my husband was out of sight I would give 3 blasts which usually worked, but he was teased unmercifully by his work colleagues. The dogs herding the ducks were amazing.

Sometimes I think, no I know, most dogs are smarter than their people!
