These dogs are trying so hard to do what they do best, but sometimes their best work is just entertaining us.
Dogs will be dogs. Well, mostly, but not always.
There are some things you expect a dog to be able to do, like catch a ball. But pooches are also known for getting overly-excited about the simple things in life.
This video montage features a lot of dogs playing fetch in unique ways--lop-sided jumps and face plants, trying to fit branches through doorways. But these dogs even fail at the simpler things, like passing through the doggy door.
While we had a good laugh on their account, it's important to make sure your pet doesn't get injured while doing tricks--or failing at being a dog. Bad falls and misjudged jumps can lead to physical injuries in all sorts of breeds.
For the most part, though, dogs are resilient creatures. We baby them, but they could get through life just fine without us.
