Golden retriever fails at obedience challenge, excels at eating

Thursday November 20th, 2014

Apparently dog owners and their furry friends can take part in competitions to show off how well-trained the dogs are by running them through a course filled with distractions like water bowls and delicious doggie treats. 

One owner decided her golden retriever was up to the challenge, but she turned out to be spectacularly wrong.

The most impressive part of the retriever's demolition of every snack in sight is that it somehow managed to wait at the start line until the challenge began, just to let everyone know it could behave if it wanted to.
