Dogs have an incredible sense of smell. No matter the breed, scent is something that stands out for our canine companions.

So you would think that a dog could track the scent of a treat under a nearby cup, right? Wrong.

In a video uploaded to YouTube by Lexie C, an adorable dog adorably fails to track her treat in a game of memory using three colorful cups.

So it’s under the orange cup. Got it. Via Lexie C/YouTube

There’s a blue cup, a pink cup and an orange cup. The dog’s owner makes it extremely obvious which cup the treat is under — the orange cup — by placing the treat under the cup right in front of the dog.

Still under the orange cup…. Via Lexie C/YouTube

But the dog still checks the blue cup first. Nothing. Then she checks the pink cup. Nada.

Then it takes her WHAT FEELS LIKE FOREVER to even consider looking under the orange cup.

Eventually she finds it. But man, somebody’s nose is not up to snuff.
