Video: ‘Wingsuit Dog’ Flight With Owner

Last week we reported on Whisper, the world’s most adventurous dog. Whisper accompanies renowned climber and wingsuit flyer Dean Potter on many of his adventures.

Today, the trailer to Potter and Whisper’s movie, “When Dogs Fly,” went live. It is definitely worth a watch.

A few readers of the first article were concerned about Whisper’s safety and fear in these endeavors, and from the movie, it’s clear that those worries also loomed large on Potter’s mind.

“Will this joy lead to harm or death?” Potter asks. “Something almost made me crumble when I started putting the dog on my back.”

Good question that gets right to the heart of dangerous sports. We look forward to the full film. —Sean McCoy
