Some dogs are born herders that spend their days keeping sheep huddled together and out of danger. Herding sheep is hard work, something this dog will soon find out.

Nelson, a Norfolk terrier-mix, dreams of being a sheep dog. He is surrounded by sheep in his hometown of East Sussex. Nelson attempts to herd the sheep with a wagging tail and by darting back and forth. The sheep start to herd together, making Nelson think he is doing well.

However, once the sheep are together as a group, they decide to turn the tables on Nelson. The sheep move as one large group and start to herd the little dog. It turns into a game of chase, where the sheep are chasing Nelson. He is a good sport and plays along.
