The Rhodesian Ridgeback Tigger Gene

Mary, Zero’s breeder, calls it the “Tigger gene.” But whatever you call it, Zero has some serious bounce in him. I picked up a Sony Action cam this week to help me capture the high-flying pup in action.

If you’re interested in an action cam for your dog, I highly recommend this Sony FDR – X3000.  A proliferation of competitors to GoPro has really broken the action camera market wide open.  There are more choices than ever for consumers, which is great, but the glut of options can be overwhelming. After exhaustive research I landed on the Sony not only for it’s image quality, but also for it’s unrivaled image stabilization. If like me, your camera will be bouncing around (or on top of) your dog, the Sony gives you by far the smoothest video possible.

  1. Good grief!! That’s a lot of bouncing dogs! I can’t believe the height Zero can achieve. I would be afraid of a back injury….but I’m probably overly cautious.

    And how adorable is Lincoln, enjoying his ride on daddy’s back! You hit the Lottery with your wife, your son, and, of course, the four-legged wonders. You’re a lucky man Will.

    Happy Mother’s Day to your better half!!

    • I definitely feel like I won the life lotto for sure. Very lucky to have this crew with me. And yes, since landing isn’t his forte we keep Mr. Bounce A Lot to soft-dirt and sand for his antics.

  2. Look, it’s a bird, its a plane, no its “Super Zero”!!!! Great shots of his graceful abilities. Looks like Link loves his days out on the beach with the kids. Have a great weekend and Emily, “Happy First Mother’s Day”

    • Lincoln has to hold some kind of record for most days visiting the dog park as a percentage of his total days alive.

    • Thanks! We’ve gotten a big kick out of the new rig so far. No doubt it will be great for our summer travel.

      • Sure will ! Enjoy…………I’m still using my GoPro but we also have an OLDER Sony camera that we love because it’s so small. Easy to take ANYWHERE!

  3. wow it’s even for under da sea… will you have two yellow submarines this summer? love the shots, it is like tv … well done… and I think zero trashed the high jumping record of Mr. Bubka ;O)))

    • For our next trick I’ll be strapping it underneath Penny as she swims across Lake Michigan!
