It is one of the highlights of their week. Other highlights include playing ball, saying hello to anybody (and everybody) they meet, eating dinner, going on a walk and taking a nap in a cool location. They are pretty easy to please.
But sheep herding is truly their utmost favorite thing to do. They get to see their "professor" Debbie. She's actually their herding teacher, but they call her professor. It's a sign of respect.
When they see Debbie, it's all over. They will do anything she says because she controls their access to this:
Sheep! Sure, sure, Moose and Grady have goats at home to play with, but no sheep yet.
Goats refuse to clump together like sheep. Sheep have fear in their eyes when they see these two fierce border collies crouch down in the border collie stance. Goats eye them with humor. Fear and Humor are not the same to a border collie. They prefer fear.
So off they go for higher learning each week. They are always excited to go.
That is, unless their owners stand around talking too long before actually starting the car to go to college. Then Grady looses it a bit. He's on a slooooow, looong slide to boredom. Don't worry, he knows exactly what he's doing. He's going for sympathy points so we'll start the car. His sheep are waiting.
