I have a welsh sheepdog who helps me around the place. He watches what I do and when he thinks he's figured out what I'm attempting to accomplish, he tries to do it for me.
If I collect fallen fruit, he finds ones I've missed and brings them to me.
If I try to herd ducks, he does it for me.
If an uncooperative drake decides to sit down instead of allowing itself to be herded, he takes note, bats it on the back with his paws to make sure it stays there, then comes to fetch me to tell me where it is so I can pick it up.
If a chicken refuses to be herded, he applies the same technique of 'pawsing' it, batting it on the back until it sits down, then coming to fetch me.
In short, he studies everything I do and figures out how to make my life easier.
No way on earth am I ever going to kill and process ducks or any other poultry where he can watch!
