The Dog Goldberg Machine Is the Best Rube Goldberg Machine

This might be an ad for Beneful dog food, but who cares. The Dog Goldberg Machine is just the greatest, most adorable pup-powered kibble and ball distributor ever.

This video actually fulfills a fantasy of mine where my dog lets herself in and out of our fifth-floor apartment through an elaborate pulley system. Too bad that would never work in reality. This ad, of course, is almost certainly several takes stitched together. Have you ever made a dog try to knock over a perfectly arranged line of dominos? The words "bull in a china shop" come to mind. But the idea that man's best friends could make such complex contraption on their own is exactly why we love this video so much.
