    Thats bullshit Dean Potter. The dog probably freaked the hell out all the way. Animal cruelty for a shot at the next ‘new thing’. Imagine going snorkeling at Seal Island. Dog had no control here, just ‘had to go’ because his master made him. Not Like!

    Maybe the dog liked it, maybe… Maybe she was slowly brought into things, I dunno. My first reaction was what it was tho. I’m thinking of my own dogs: one def has vertigo when jumping off anything higher than a chair, and the other’s fear of water is legendary – seems like she even has trouble drinking it… poor souls. Peace out.

    The dog in question is a Australian Blue Heeler. They are pure herding dogs, with extreme courage and agility. I myself own one, and it would probably base jump on its own given the opportunity to. If ever there was a dog that would enjoy something like this, this is definitely the breed….
