21 Times Dogs Tried Their Very Best To Catch Things... And Failed

When one thinks of a dog, the usual words that come to mind are "loyal," and "guardian." Dogs are considered the best companions because, honestly, they make us feel loved and we know that they will never let us down. While their unwavering loyalty is an admirable quality, there are other qualities about them that make them loveable as well. As much as dog lovers like to stress the majestic qualities of these animals, ultimately, one of the most charming things about them is just how humbly honest and unknowingly goofy they are.

Case and point: These dogs that tried their very best to catch things. They're so sincere, and they try so very hard, and that's what makes them even funnier!

21 This is Fritz, the Golden Retriever, who has become an internet sensation, and the ambassador for all dogs who have not yet mastered the art of catching things!
