This dog’s struggle to reach a tree branch is a metaphor for life

One dog’s determination serves as another’s source of entertainment.

One dog’s determination serves as another’s source of entertainment.

Adam Michaleski’s neighbor in Calgary recently trimmed some tree branches in his yard, possibly because his dog was constantly trying to grab them. It didn’t work.

Every day, the dog tries to grab a branch that just isn’t there, so he continues to jump and flip. The nearest branch sits at least 10 feet above his reach, but the dog thinks it’s still just… right… there.

In this matchup, the bark is worse than the bite—even though there’s nothing to grab.
