Don't be a dog.

There was a dog frantically digging and scratching because there was some tasty-ass BBQ smoking in the yard next door. After the dog broke off a splintery hunk of fence and dug away some earth, it could see the smoker. It dug faster and ripped apart the fence more violently until its head fits through the fence. Guess what? There was an open gate on the other side of the yard the whole time.

Don’t be a dog. 

Better yet, don't be dogmatic.

Get out of the hole.
