Border Collie brings new meaning to "bringing the sheep home."

A 7-month-old sheepdog in training brought home a little surprise for his owner in Devon, England last month, reported the Telegraph.

Rosalyn Edwards was in the kitchen of her farmhouse when she heard strange noises. To her shock, she discovered that that her Border Collie, Rocky, had led nine sheep into her house.

Apparently, someone had left a gate open, and the dog decided to bring the sheep home to his master.

Edwards told the Telegraph, “I thought it was funny at the time, but then there was quite a lot of wee, poo and mud everywhere. It took me a little while to clean it all up.”

She later posted a video on Facebook of the sheep in her kitchen  before marching them out of the house.

“Rocky did look quite pleased with himself, but he’s going to need more training,” she said.

“He brought a whole new meaning to ‘bringing the sheep home.’”
