News that Fetch, a canine-compatible video camera harness, has now hit the streets will surely change the game for fish-eyed moving-camera clips on YouTube. If so, it may improve the experience of those who follow Walter, the latest Labrador retriever to take advantage of the cameras.

That same owner put a clip of the video on Instagram, where it jumped around his social circle.
