Helicopter alert

With so little rain this winter and high winds it was inevitable that wildfires would start up. One big one did so yesterday.

While on our walk Khumbu alerted us that a helicopter was flying. Whenever hu’mum hears a helicopter she goes outside to see if it has a fire bucket underneath. Since he was little he has always followed hu’mum into the garden to watch too. Now he is the first to alert us when a helicopter is around. You see Sibes are a working breed!
