Sometimes you think you’re helping someone out and really you’re just making a situation worse. Like Rocky the seven-month-old sheepdog, for example.
This week, the puppy took it upon himself to herd the flock on his owner’s farm while she was in the kitchen. But instead of herding them into their pen, Rocky led them all into the house. Yes, that’s right, the entire flock were found chilling in the hallway.
And sadly for unsuspecting owner, Rosalyn Edwards, the nine nervous sheep started to wee and poo all over the floor. Rosalyn, 40, from Devon, said: ‘I thought it was funny at the time, but then there was quite a lot of wee, poo and mud everywhere.
In the video, Rosalyn, who runs a small holding with husband Andrew, 41, can be heard trying to shoo the sheep to get them on the move. She says the flock meandered through the house, trampling muck wherever they went.
‘It took me a little while to clean it all up. ‘My son and husband had gone out into the field, and the gate was left open. Rocky got them out and led them to the house. ‘I was in the kitchen and heard a noise. I turned around and the sheep were just standing there.
‘There were about nine of them. ‘I took the children into another room and then tried to guide the sheep out. They went right around from the kitchen and left again through the porch.’
