Not a particularly Christmassy way to end the year, but I love dogs. And there is a little snow in the video. This is Piper, the Aviation Bird Dog — a border collie whose job it is to chase birds away from airfields, so they don’t interfere with the airplanes. And it’s the story of a man who loves his job. And a dog who seems to love his job too, after coming to terms with the fact that he has to wear those goggles.
This article from BBC is a little old (2013) and mentions a different dog: “10 ways to prevent plane bird strikes”
I’ll be back in January with new topics.
