Basically all of us on Thanksgiving.
Unfortunately, this dog does not realize that the treat has already been thrown.
Behold: the majesty of the pug in one stunning shot.
He knows he closed his mouth too early, and that there's not enough time to open it again. Now all he can do is watch it happen.
Intense regret at an opportunity missed. Perhaps he was in over his head?
"FOOD COMING OPEN MOUTH NOW YES"
"Maybe if I stay very still, it'll land quietly on me."
"Steady, steady...keep your eyes on the bone."
"Is it in, is it in, is it in?! OH MY GOD I THINK IT'S IN."
"Look, you better throw another one, buddy."
"This is weird. I didn't know my mouth could do this."
"OH MY GOD TWO TREATS? ARE YOU INSANE?!"
"You guys, you guys, I did it!!"
Everyone knows that their dog’s face gets a little crazy when it tries to catch a treat mid-air.
But we’ve never really known just
how insane their expression actually is. Well, now we can, thanks to German photographer Christian Vieler, the genius behind a brilliant series of photographs capturing dogs at the precise moment they (attempt to) snag a snack that’s been thrown its way. By employing a special technique, Vieler’s work illustrates the intense range of emotions that accompany just the mere possibility of a treat ending up in a dog’s mouth.
For the love of Dog, please keep in mind that the images you are about to see contain some major derp. But if you love derp like we do, you should definitely check out more of this artist’s amazing work on his Facebook and Instagram pages.
