It's always fun to root for the underdog. Especially when the underdog is a literal dog who has found a stick that he's probably no match for.
German Shepherd Finds The Biggest Stick Ever, Has Best Time Ever
It's just that this large stick is actually a small tree trunk.
But if we've learned anything about stick-loving dogs, it's that where there's a will, there's a way.
Nom nom nom nom...
Despite his cheering section encouraging him, he's never able to actually pick it up. But, let's be honest, it's a tree trunk.
The point is, at least he tried his hardest and found creative ways to have fun with his stick treasure, even if they were a bit untraditional. He embodies the spirit of making the most of what you've got. Plus, German Shepherds are very smart and fast learners. So maybe next time this dog comes across a stick this massive, the outcome will be different.
