And many times, I've wanted to  film our excursions from her perspective. When a few weeks ago the GoPro  dog harness came out and I watched fun videos of other camera-dogs  (mostly Yellow Labs, it seems), I had to try it out as soon as possible.  This week, Whiskey, Scott and I tested the harness for the first time  at our favorite playground: Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins,  Colorado.<br /> <br /> Two things become immediately clear: Whiskey loves  running, swimming and fetching... and the GoPro camera and Fetch harness  are really intended for bigger dogs. The camera lens ends up so far  above the pivot point on her tiny back, that it pivots so much, one  could get dizzy from watching. But I believe the joy she seems to have  and the fun of watching action from her (just behind those floppy ears)  perspective overwhelm the technical issues. To make it a little less  jostling, I slowed down the footage a little bit.<br /> <br /> The lighting  wasn't so great either, with the sun having just disappeared behind the  Foot Hills. So I had to brighten the footage up a bit, which took away a  lot of the beautiful colors of our ginger dog and the wonderful  scenery. I'm sure we'll soon try to get brighter daylight footage with  her, and there should be an onslaught of Whiskey Business episodes to  come as part of my weekly 1-minute web series Moving Postcard.<br /> <br /> The featured song in this video is the instrumental version of "Learn To Fly" by <a href="http://www.joshwoodward.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Josh Woodward</a>.
