Nah....youre not missing anything colibri, the Americans have an unusual variation of that expression, but they mean the same thing.

er.................................have I missed something in the video? It seems from the dogs behaviour that she couldn't care less about the helicopter noise above her.
Nope, you did not miss anything---guess is it the use of single or double negatives or something.

She is not bothered by helicopters...she has grown up around this one since she was 6 weeks old. I remember a time she was sleeping under it with her head rested in the skid, and would not move when I started up, so I lifted off and her head slowly slipped off the skid.

She swims in our dip sites--kinda fun trying to fit the bucket in along with her...

Well I do apologise for the lack of 'canine with copter' photo but will compensate for this by posting some photos in the near future I have of a German Shepherd in an Ecureuil.

In the meantime have a read of this and join with me in celebrating just how wonderful dogs are!

Many farm dogs become familiar with their master's voice (or whistle) and follow their instructions. In Sweden however a handful of helicopter pilots have been specially trained to interpret barking in order to follow canine instructions regarding the intricacies of reindeer herding!

If you keep them well fed, those heli pilots are quick learners you know.
