Is there anything more adorable than a cute little puppy running at full speed?  Only when that puppy falls into a hole that’s almost exactly the same size as him.

This little guy, whose name seems to be Patton, almost gets left behind when his two much larger pals go running across the yard.

After hearing his name called, he sprints to catch up, and in true puppy fashion, he fails to notice the puppy-sized hole directly in front of him.

One second he’s there:

And the next he seems to completely disappear:

Luckily, his tiny head pops back out almost immediately:

And he shrugs it off, like nothing happened.

Way to go champ!  But maybe next time pay a little more attention to where you’re going.
