Space Age Search Dog

March 13, 2009 at 1:55 am 1 comment


A Texas Border Collie named Hopper has a unique skill. According to News8Austin the four-legged astrogeologist found a piece of the meteor that lit up Texas skies on February 15 and brought it back to her owner’s porch.

Meteors can be valuable and meteor hunting is a serious business. Meteor hunters are secretive and territorial.  They descended on the tiny Texas town of West in droves after the spectacular fireball fell to earth.  LunarMeteorHunters reports that three meteor hunters canvassing Hopper’s neighborhood for permission to search discovered the fragment lying on her owner’s porch.  Hopper’s owner was pleasantly surprised to find that the nondescript black rock she’d carried home was a`valuable specimen.
