Sometimes, when you set your mind on something, you just can't let anything get in the way--even the actual impossibility of what you are trying to accomplish.

That seems to be the case with this dog, who repeatedly challenges this doorway with a stick he wants to bring into the house. While the harsh reality of the situation bounces him back time after time, he remains undaunted, defiantly and adorably marching forward with courage in his heart and a stick in his mouth!

He even paws at the air a few times, before coming to the stubborn conclusion that when forced to choose between stick and house, no stick gets left behind. He may have been turned away, but he hasn't given up on his dream.
