I saw a post on FB this a.m. that Jumpy, the dog who does parkour with a young man named Alex, has passed away.

 

I can't copy past links to this site, but if you do a search for Jumpy the Parkour Dog, you'll find some amazing videos to watch. Very skillful training & handling.

I saw that too. (on FB) What an incredible athlete. He had developed cancer.

He certainly raised the bar.

Perfect summation, Jovi. He pushed that bar pretty high.

Jumpy was awesome. Although I did cringe thinking how many people atempted some of his stuff with their dogs "just because Jumpy could do it".
