BASE jumper Dean Potter is probably going to be arrested for animal cruelty after he strapped his dog, Whisper, to his back and jumped off a cliff in Switzerland.
But, until then, we have this video of an adorable dog participating in a wingsuit flight.
Potter, for his part, says his dog was never in danger.
Whenever I enter hazardous terrain with Whisper-dog, I secure her with a Ruffwear DoubleBack Harness … The harness is strong enough for a human and exceeds the strength of my own harness …
I just want to let you all to know that we do everything possible to keep Whisper super safe, well beyond the equivalent safety of a human being in the same scenario …
Last summer when I was wingsuit BASE jumping with Whisper, she never once didn’t want to come along. In fact, whenever I put on my wingsuit or pack my parachute, little Whisper nestles close and begs to come along.
I don’t know how he can prove that last point, but whatever. BASE JUMPING PUPPY.
