It's a fact of life. Dogs LOVE sticks! Pernicus is no exception. And he's ambitious, usually choosing sticks that seem much too big for him. But even he knows enough to pick sticks that aren't still attached to the tree! Unlike this puppy, who is determined to get the stick of her choosing!

It's certainly a study in tenacity the way this puppy won't give up. And a testament to the strength she possesses that she's able to hold on. But mostly...it's just cute and funny!
