Abstract/Contents:Profiles a specific problem with geese overtaking an athletic field at Paramus Catholic High School in Paramus, New Jersey. Indicates that after unsuccessfully attempting to remove the geese from the field, a border collie dog was employed. Explains that border collies "were originally trained to herd sheep in Scotland and Northern England," stating that "they are working dogs...they prefer being outside and performing tasks." Details the process of purchasing the dog for the school, stating that he "made an immediate impact on keeping the geese off the fields as well as the campus." Concludes that "he's turned out to be a great employee who loves his job and takes pride in his work."
