Normally, when we think of fierce, fearless dogs, the bigger, tougher breeds, like pit bulls or Rottweilers come to mind. Dachshunds, not so much.
Well, Riley, a 4-year-old dachshund from San Francisco just turned the tables on everyone's ideas of what "tough" means. He jumped out of a plane at 13,000 feet
with his owner, Nathan Batiste.
Thats right: The pup went skydiving.
Batiste, 38, a seasoned skydiver, has made the plunge over 400 times but wanted to make his latest jump a little more special.
He had special goggles made for his puppy pal, strapped the little guy to his chest with a custom-made harness and jumped out of the plane.
According to Batiste, Riley loved his first-ever jump - so much so that the pair is already planning to do it again in the future.
Who needs goggles anyway.
That smile doesn't lie: Riley is having the time of his life.
