I loved the sheepdogs we had on the farm growing up. They were a cross between a Border Collie like this one, and a kelpie. They were amazingly smart, and hardworking dogs. After Grandma trained them up, all Grandpa had to do at milking time was whistle, and then yell out "Round 'em up, Wiz!" And off she would charge to the top of the paddock by herself, round up 100 head of cows, and herd them down into the dairy. All Grandpa had to do then was close the gate behind them. Then get to milking, of course.
