Pits are amazing animals as are most good terriers.
In his prime, my now 10yr old, blind in one eye, 13 lb JRT could jump on top of a six ft brick wall from a sitting position. He didn't run up it, he just jumped on top.
He's only good for about 4 ft now.

Wow! :eek:

Ya know, to another kind of jump.......I was reading an article a couple days ago about long jumps (after reading a post in another section of this forum), and came across this:
QUOTE: What surprised us in the last class we had was that with this method of measuring the dog's stride, a Border Terrier had a longer natural stride than a Lab did....... END

Great article. It talked about one of my pet peeves. People training their dogs at full height WAY to much. NOT necessary!

I sent that article to my daughter to read to Milo.

I thought it was a very good article too.
