Recently, Duke was playing with his doggy and human siblings in front of their home in Virginia when strong gusts of wind started blowing.

The wind wasn't blowing hard enough to stop the doggies from playing, so they stayed outside. 

No one expected what would happen next

Duke's mother, Brittany Wampler, was at work at the time. Her children reported that Duke had been lifted by the force of the wind and had flown through the air. 

Of course, Brittany thought her children were joking at first. But then she watched the video from one of her neighbour's surveillance cameras and couldn’t believe her eyes.

In the video, Brittany could see that the wind had lifted Duke completely off the ground, even though he weighs almost five stone! The doggie really did a pirouette in the air. 

Fortunately, brave Duke was not injured, just a little shaken. 

Duke has always been a beloved member of the Wampler family, but after his incredible adventure in the "tornado", he is even more cherished by his family! 

They've nicknamed him Duke the Flying Dog and the kids even joke about buying him a cape!
