We’ve all been in Fritz’s position – trying our hardest to achieve a life goal (in his case, catching an airborne chimichanga in his mouth), and then failing miserably.

This YouTube video, filmed in slow motion and set to dramatic music, chronicles Fritz’s owner (who, let’s be honest, comes across as not quite nice in this situation) throwing a series of delectable food items – a steak, strawberry, meatball and more – at his golden retriever pup, who is absolutely incapable of catching any of it in his mouth, despite his unwavering enthusiasm.

(While Fritz may be awful at catching, his fashion is on-point – he works those funky bandanas like a champion.)

We just hope that the next time life throws a (metaphorical) hot dog at our face, we’ll have the strength to get back up and keep on trying. And guess what? Perseverance pays off. In the last few seconds (Spoiler!), Fritz successfully mouth-catches what appears to be a French fry.
