I think it’s pretty impressive if Jake jumps onto a two-foot-high tree stump these days. So when I saw the above doggy Parkour video, sent over by Dogster top dog Ted Rheingold, I was wowed by this dog’s incredible athleticism and enthusiasm.
As defined by Wikipedia, Parkour “is a way of conditioning the body and the mind by learning how to overcome physical obstacles with speed, efficiency, and agility.” It’s usually the province of humans, but some dogs are great at it. It looks like there’s nothing this dog can’t take on. He’d make a great military working dog (the subject of my next book, Soldier Dogs). I only hope he’d be on our side. 😉
