Meet Whisper, the world’s first BASE-jumping dog.

Dean Potter, who is a self-described ‘rock climber, walker and human-body-flyer’ packs the 22-pound Australian Cattledog along when he BASE jumps in his wingsuit from mountains.

He 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.
