Courageous dog isn’t a quitter, keeps trying to pick up tree root

He doesn't understand what's going on, which only makes it more adorable.

Kai the dog just wants to fetch this stick, but something is getting in the way. That something is a tree.

You’ve got to admire Kai’s perseverance while trying to pick up the half-buried tree root. He just keeps trying and trying, despite the mounting evidence that the root is solidly attached to a tree. Maybe decide on a different stick next time?

Sorry, Kai. You keep trying to make fetch happen, but it’s just not going to happen.
