As you watch this poor pup go around and around in his dinghy, your heart, too, will spin circles. Do you take pity? He’s trapped on that tiny boat, and all that motion is surely wreaking havoc on his tummy. Do you laugh? Dumb dog! Or do you feel envy? Dinghy donuts are probably more fun than lots of things, such as watching YouTube videos of dumb dogs.

According to a masterfully headlined article in Australia’s Courier-Mail (“Sea dog does nut as skipper dips out”) the spins began off the coast of Townsville in Queensland after the boat’s driver went overboard at around 10 a.m. on Monday. Eventually, the captain boarded another small boat and brought his dog to safety. Relive the moment forever and ever and ever above.
