A dog playing with a ball is about as cute as it gets, so imagine the level of frustration this  pooch feels when it simply cannot get its paws on one no matter how hard it tries.

All this bulldog wants to do is play with a worn tennis ball sitting on the couch, but it's just out of reach.

Poor guy.

It's like when you were a kid and all you wanted was a cookie and your mom put the cookie jar on a shelf you couldn't quite reach. Sorry -- didn't mean to trigger those bad memories.
