Let's get this out of the way: There are no dumb dogs, there are just dogs who are less smart.
That's the takeaway from a now viral thread on Twitter, in which people are sharing their pups' less graceful moments. Some might call them lowlights, but we find them relatable as heck.
"Please tell me about your dumbest dog," asked Twitter user Bum Phillips, a college football writer with nearly 140,000 followers.
Challenge officially issued, folks on the microblogging platform quickly leaned into the ask with a flood of funny anecdotes, the best and funniest of which are collected below.
