It was a herculean task for the tiny pup.


A video showed an adorable dog trying to overcome a challenge. He proved to everyone that he was determined not to give up.

The hilarious video was shot in Zhengzhou, Henan Province in China. It shows a tiny dog as it tries to get inside a car.

However, the puppy faces a challenge. With its front paws already in the vehicle, he struggles to climb into the vehicle. His hind legs are just a little short.

The struggle is real for the dog as he tries for about half a minute. Despite the hardship the little dog faces, he is adorable and many would vouch for that.


People too could face similar challenges if they are short. However, there are many benefits to being short.

For starters, there is abundant legroom for a person inside most vehicles, including a bus, car, or airplane. Even small spaces do not intimate them and they are a perfect fit.


Short people are also among the healthiest. A recent study has shown that each additional four inches of height increases the risk of all types of cancer by 13 percent.

The study was conducted by a team of researchers led by Geoffrey Kabat of Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

A neuroscientist, David Eagleman, reported that it would take about one-tenth of the second longer for taller people to perceive sensory information. 

He added that for a 6-foot-4-inch Abraham Lincoln “now” might come a tiny bit later than for a 5-foot-2-inch person standing next to each other.

Terming it as ‘temporal binding,’ Eagleman said that the brain manages to synchronize what is happening even though sensory data comes through eyes, ears, tongue, and skin at slightly different times and speeds.

Last but not the least, short people also seem to be perceived as younger than they actually are.
