If you've ever tried your best and felt like your efforts weren't going anywhere, you know how this puppy feels.

At first Angus is scared of the waves, jumping sideways in fright when they head his way. Then he grows a little curious, and by the time the water fills up his carefully dug hole in the sand, he's just plain angry. And who wouldn't be, if all their hard work was laid to waste?
