This, ladies and gentlemen, is the world's first BASE jumping, wingsuit-wearing dog.

Yes, you read that correctly. The world famous BASE jumper Dean Potter recently strapped his dog, Whisper, in for one of his frightening leaps off a cliff.

Using a GoPro and a camera crew, Potter managed to film the entire event. Everything from sliding the pup out to an isolated rock on a pulley system, to the leap, to the parachute deploying to the landing is all included in this incredible video.

While this jump is the first of its kind and seems to be in good fun, Potter may need to brace for some backlash. As some news outlets have already noted, there is something that seems wrong about strapping an animal into a backpack and then jumping off a cliff without its -- you know -- permission.

What do you think?
