Guy takes his dog BASE jumping off mountain, films it

Dog lovers enjoy taking their pups with them everywhere ... in cars, to parks, even to the occasional dog-friendly cafe. Dean Potter decided to share his hobby with his dog, and what's so wrong with that?

Well, Dean's hobby happens to be BASE jumping. Here, he shows you what happens when he brings his dog Whisper along for the ride.

Potter, a filmmaker, has created the National Geographic short film "When Dogs Fly," for which the above video is a trailer. You can see Whisper getting lowered to the jumping-off point and strapped in, and if you're an animal lover or a heights-hater, you're going to have a hard time with this one. Still, it looks like everybody made it down just fine, and we'd hope the pup got an extra treat or fifty.

"The joy we have is just incredible," Potter says during the film. "We love it up there."

The dog was not available for comment.
