As far as we know, dogs don't have the ability to fly. But no seems to have told that to Minnie the pug, who catches some serious air while playing ball at Carmel Beach in California.

Minnie chases after the ball with gusto like any dog would. But what separates her from a normal pooch is her ability to launch herself spectacularly in the air. It's a bird...it's a plane...it's a pug?

Minnie leaps several feet off the ground in the pursuit of a ball. In fact, she's so high-flying that she completely overshoots her target. Any higher and she'd be in the stratosphere.

Watch Minnie's performance and you'll believe that dogs can fly.
