One of the joys of getting a dog when they’re puppies is being able to watch them try everything for the first time. And let’s be honest: most of the time they’re going to fail, and it’s going to be adorable.

This little boxer puppy named Tobias is only three weeks old and he clearly has a lot of work to do when it comes to perfecting his howl. But that’s okay, because just listening to him try is priceless!

Isn’t this the silliest combination of adorable and hilarious? Tobias is just the sweetest, tiniest little pup and he’s really trying his best. “A” for effort, little guy!
