She may be little, but boy is she mighty! This itsy-bitsy puppy took a nasty spill, but do you think she let that stop her? Fat chance!

Got a serious case of the Mondays? So did we — until we saw this video.

Jason Sanders’ tiny pup had the unfortunate occasion of jumping off a 6-foot high deck, breaking both her front legs in the process. Poor little thing!

But before you feel sorry for her, wait just a second, because this intrepid little pooch laughs in the face of adversity. Not only did she learn how to teeter around on her two hind legs, but she also taught herself to adorably hop over the threshold to the family’s sliding backyard door. Broken legs? What broken legs?

So no matter how you might be feeling on this particular Monday — mopey, manic, malcontent — let’s all take a cue from this plucky pup and face the day with the same dauntless joy and determination.

Watch the video below for some early-week inspiration:
