On a crystal clear day, a large green parachute descends from the sky. As the chute gets closer to the ground, four furry legs come into view. The creature attached to the parachute is a dog! The canine has been trained by the military to skydive from planes flying high above Earth. Once on the ground, the dog uses its keen sense of smell to seek out hidden bombs and hunt down dangerous terrorists. In this book, young readers will meet a variety of amazing skydiving dogs--from Austrian military dogs that plunge from a height of 10,000 feet (3,048 m) to dogs like Otis, a 12-year-old pug in California that likes to accompany his owner, Will DaSilvia, on skydiving expeditions. Packed with real-life stories and dramatic, full-color photos of these special animals, this book is sure to be a favorite of dog-lovers everywhere.
