This Doberman totally missed the point of a playground slide
But she knows the shortest distance between two points.
Our inclination to see human qualities in pets leads to pretty strange behaviors: We dress them in awful clothes, feed them scraps of gourmet meals, and sometimes, we encourage them to try out a playground slide.
But hey, what do you know, this Doberman Pinscher seems to like it! Will the dog queued up behind him show the same intuitive grasp of the ride? Don’t bet on it.
On the plus side, that’s the best Superman impression we’ve ever seen.
