Herding dogs will try to herd just about anything. Sometimes, like when they dart out the front door and attempt to round up moving cars, this can be a dangerous instinct. But other times, like when these Mini Australian Shepherd puppies try to herd ducklings, it’s just plain adorable.

As you can see, the herding exhausted both herders and herdees. So the ducklings start drinking out of the dogs’ water dish, which greatly offends a pup named Finn.

But try as he might, Finn can’t get the ducks to cease their water theft. Being barely bigger then the birds, he is just not intimidating enough. Too bad the pup’s little bark doesn’t really terrify them as much as he’d like, but mommy puppy is a different story.
