In this video, a house cat makes a daring escape from a dog chasing it through a backyard.

At the beginning of the video, a male narrator appears to be taking video of his property when he catches the animal chase unfolding in real time. As the dog chases the cat down a flight of stairs and toward the pool's edge, the fleeing feline leaps onto a surfboard in the pool. The cool cat casually waits as the board floats to the other side of the pool, then calmly exits the pool and continues on its way.

The dog appears to be a toy fox terrier (though we defer to you, insightful Yahoo! dog fans). The video then replays in slow motion, accompanied by a cheesy but hilarious electronic music soundtrack.
