Before all the comment wars start: Dean Potter is an expert jumper who has done many stunts with live human beings strapped to his back before. This is no amateur move. And hey, his pup Whisper seems to have a pretty good time!

Tearjerker of the Day: Faithful Service Dog Walks in Deceased Owner's Place During Graduation

Josh Kelly suffered from epilepsy, a brain disorder that forced him to drop out of high school nine days before graduation. For nearly a decade, Kelly attended Idaho State University working toward a degree in geology, with his service dog, a black pit bull named Cletus, by his side. The pair would dutifully walk two miles both ways to catch the bus to campus.

Unfortunately, Kelly passed away in February just two classes shy of his degree. Nonetheless, ISU granted him a posthumous degree on May 10. In the young man's place, Kelly's tearful father, Terrell, walked across the stage with Cletus by his side and accepted the diploma.
