Dog Is A Better Jump-Roper Than Most Humans! [Video]

Think about it, when was the last time you jumped rope? I can confidently say that I haven't picked one of them up since I was probably 12-years-old, so I'm pretty out of practice. When I was a kid, I was always jealous of the people who could double dutch, because I couldn't figure it out. And now I'm jealous of this dog for that same reason.

Geronimo is a 2-year-old cattle dog mix that her owners rescued from a shelter. Not only is she able to double dutch better than most humans, she can also catch a frisbee in mid-air and then do a back flip. I'm not kidding. Check out the video after the jump!
