Video of the Day: Dog the Paratrooper
An American captured the first flight of the BASE-jumping dog.
An extreme sport lover, Dean Potter, posted a video on Vimeo featuring his dog Whisper and himself enjoying BASE-jumping – the most dangerous type of jumping. Potter put goggles on the dog, then put the dog into his backpack and jumped. With a GoPro he captured how the animal looked during the freefall.
The video is a trailer for a 22-minute documentary "When Dogs Fly" about the jumping hobby of Dean Potter and Whisper.
