Have You Seen This? Dog and the unattainable stick

Posted May 11

THE PARK — If animals dream, I think it’s safe to assume that every dog regularly dreams about a comfy bed, chasing squirrels and finding a great stick.

No, not just a great stick, the perfect, holy grail of sticks. That stick that will show all the other dogs who is boss. That stick that every pupper knows will be it’s best friend and playmate.

This is probably what the dog in this video is thinking when he finds a glorious “stick” that still happens to be attached to a tree. But this doggo will not let something like the forces of nature stop him from obtaining his passionate dream of possessing that branch for its very own.

This dog has its eye on the prize, it’s going for the gold, it’s applying the fundamentals of good hustle and pushing through the pain, it’s taking no prisoners, and it’s not taking no for an answer.

Sadly, attitude and dog jaw strength, it turns out, don’t always get you what you want. But it sure is fun watching this dog trying. I’m sure if it starts weight training, throwing back protein shakes and getting real swol, this sweet dog can make all his stick dreams come true.
