Dog jumps huge distances

Go on, Fido, give it some

Dogs in the olden days were ace. They were fighter pilots, train drivers, detectives; that kind of thing. Well, such is our rose-tinted view of the past.

Not like dogs today – indolent creatures who when they’re not out savaging people for looking at them funny are sitting at home playing Fifa.

Dogs of yore are soon to be given the recognition they deserve, as British Pathe, the veteran newsreel that bought news of the wars to the masses, reissues some 90,000 of its greatest reels online.

Like this of Mickey The Alsatian from 1930, who can jump extraordinary distances. Dogs just don’t bother doing this sort of thing these days.
