Jumping Doggies

Anyone else have a leapfrog for a dog? Gambit is a BIIIIG jumper.
He'll jump up on, or over, just about anything.

When he was a little pup he'd do running attacks at the couch to try to hurl himself up. He never made it until one day he just - landed. And since then he's been jumping up on the couch, despite my concerns that he'll hurt himself.

A few weeks ago, he dove over the back of the couch, which is about a four foot drop. Since then, he'll be hurdling the couch like it's nothing, despite my fears that he'll hurt his knees....

He jumps over people in leaps and bounds if they are sitting down. He hurdled my husband's shoulder.

He jumps up onto the TV stand.

He leaps towards people he loves. He stays on his hind legs for minutes at a time just, stretching and jumping. His favorite part of fetch is being in the air.

And so this isn't just a text post, here is a picture of my little man all tie-tie after all that jumping.
