Sometimes, it's the thought that counts.
Take, for instance, this adorable puppy who thinks he's contributing to the bike ride he's taking with his owner.
This cute little pooch — stylish bandana and all — has the right idea and wants to help pedal the bicycle. He has the proper motions, but he's just not quite pedaling anything other than thin air (he's adorable, so we'll forgive him).
He's pretty much all of us struggling to move forward after a long holiday weekend.
Stuart Rutherford from Norwich, UK, took to Twitter to share this adorable video -- and we're forever grateful for his generosity. He captions these 15 seconds with, "That wholesome feeling when you think you are contributing but you really have no idea what you are doing."
Let's face the facts: This tiny pup is all of us after a four-day weekend. We're trying to look as though we're being productive, but we're kind of missing the mark.
Everyone's trying to keep their head above water and look as though they're actually making some sort of a difference at the office, even though they probably feel wiped out (especially if the Fourth of July fireworks went into the wee hours of the morning).
Tiny pup, you are everyone's inspiration for the day. Your hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets prove we're all in this together, so thank you.
If you're in need of a little morning pick-me-up after hanging poolside for four days, you can substitute your cup of Joe for a mocha-flavored Oreo.
Yes, you read that correctly: a coffee-flavored cookie. The Dunkin' Donuts and Oreo dream team joined forces to give us a treat we all love, and we can't help but crave that extra jolt after a long hiatus from the office.
Perhaps if you have one of these treats and your morning cup of coffee, you'll feel a bit more rejuvenated and you'll actually be able to reach the pedals -- unlike this hardworking pup.
