This dog probably thought it had stumbled upon the Holy Grail when it found its oversized stick, but little did it know, such a fortune would come with a price. That price being, that it's really hard to carry a giant stick through a narrow fence opening. The dog could drop the stick walk out and pick it back up, but that would require relinquishing his treasure, and that's not how dog brains work. As YouTuber vertle points out, if there's a dog purgatory, THIS is what it looks like. 

I'm just glad his owner was kind enough to grab the stick and pull it through the fence, otherwise that pooch would probably still be struggling. 

And the human equivalent of this asinine behavior...
