Meet Whisper, the world’s first BASE jumping dog

This is Whisper.

Her owner, Dean Potter, said she is the first BASE-jumping dog.

Potter is a self-described rock climber, walker and “human-body-flyer.”

He packs Whisper, a 22-pound Australian Cattledog, in a sweet little backpack when he BASE jumps in his wingsuit off mountains.

WTKR reported Potter shot this video jumping with Miss Whisper from the 13,000-foot Eiger in Switzerland.

Potter answers critics of the jumps who are concerned for the dog’s safety in a blog post, saying she is secured by a harness that’s as strong as those designed for humans.
