Dog on wire

Beyond the heroic nature of Fireman rescuing dog, the artist in me sees the strange dance of man and dog, spiraling around on the helicopter line,while the dog's legs continue to doggie paddle/swim while in the air, as if the dog was still thinking it was in the water. It reminded me of the incredible documentary film about Philippe Petit "Man on Wire." This incredible act of man's created machine and man plus dog, triumphing over their environment.This age old relationship of man and dog, continuing their journey together from out of the cave, into the sky
