Oh, for want of opposable thumbs.
Watch this determined dog try again and again to carry an oversized stick across a bridge. Carrying it horizontally in its mouth—the only way dogs can carry sticks—it proves to be too big for the bridge, banging off of the vertical posts that support the walkway’s railings.
The pup tries again and again without changing his approach. A certain Einstein quote comes to mind, that insanity is “doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.” It appears to have come to this cute canine’s mind as well.
Stick in mouth, the dog eventually ambles sideways to success.
