Dog Hiking Video – Take I

September 4, 2006 at 2:50 pm Leave a comment

Last week, Clint, had a good idea to equip the dogs with a camera so we can record what an Appalachian Trail hike is like for a dog.  Sean surprised me on Friday with the purchase of a rugged video camera designed for mountain biking and skiing.  Between all the hussle and bussle of the Virginia Tech vs. Northeastern game, Jimmie’s interior decorating, and coordinating six house guests, I didn’t have much time to acquaint myself with the features… but we were able to do a quick make-shift attachment of the camera around Jimmie’s dainty greyhound waist using some supplied velcro straps. 

Here is a picture of me and Kipp adjusting the camera on Jimmie.  Look at Jimmie’s face– he is not amused.  But once the camera was on, he ran around and drank with little realization he had electronics strapped to him.

Here is a picture of Jimmie filming.  Kipp and I are in the background posing for a picture by a human photographer.

Jimmie did his job well.  Unfortunately, I have a lot to learn about the camera.  When we got home, it turned out the .AVI did not save to the memory card.  My bad.  I’ve done a few more practice runs with the camera and saving so next time I should be ready.  It will also give me time to come up with a more secure attachment to Jimmie using a harness.

Luckily, Jimmie has seemed to forgiven me for ruining his directorial debut.  I think he is happy as long as he is not locked up in the guest bathroom again!  🙂
