This dog can’t catch a treat to save its life

But they taste just as good off the floor.

Canines come with varied skill sets: There are dogs well-disposed to leading the blind, dogs that go on hunting trips, and dogs who catch their treats in mid-air. Not this one, though. 

But however poor her mouth-eye coordination, Nana—a 5-year-old Great Pyrenees—seems determined to pull off the trick. Take a moment to bask in the slo-mo agonies of her many, many defeats (and stick around for the final triumph that makes them all worthwhile).

You know, I think there might be a lesson about dogged persistence here.
