The dog is man’s best friend, offering us company, cuteness, and cold-blooded protection. In the case of a Siberian Husky named Lucky, however, it’s only two out of three.
Lucky lives in Chang Ma, Thailand, in a jewelry store and was supposedly brought there to protect the owner and the merchandise. A viral video shows that no one talked to Lucky about her job description.
Posted on Facebook page LovelyFakeDog, the CCTV footage shows Lucky passed out in front of the store as a robber enters holding a gun.
Newsweek reports that the robber was actually a police officer posing as a thief, which Lucky must have intuitively understood because she stays laying down with her eyes closed as her master is threatened with a weapon.
The store owner Worawut Lomwanawong checks on Lucky to see if she’ll respond as he and the fake robber let their fake robbery play out.
“When a thief comes to rob the gold shop… bIs this your heart? Isn’t it really funny?” Worawut captioned the video, or so says the translation. “P.S. Police, he simulated the incident Practice robbing the gold shop, not really robbing.”
Worawut was interviewed by Bored Panda, and he said that when he got Lucky, she was in bad shape with a tick-borne disease and venereal granuloma. She was also pregnant. No wonder this dog is tired!
“I believe she had a very rough life before we met and I wanted her to start a new life full of luck,” Worawut said. “That’s why I named her Lucky.”
Worawut suspects that Lucky recognized the police officer and isn’t mad at her for sleeping through her duties as a guard.
“I found it very funny to see that she didn’t even try doing anything and continued to sleep,” he said. He’s also not very worried that she wouldn’t respond in a real emergency.
“She is mostly active and very compliant if I make some noise or ask her to do something,” he said. “In the CCTV camera, you could clearly see I couldn’t make any noise to signal my dog because it wasn’t a real situation and I had to keep my calm.”
In a real situation, he better keep his calm, too. Lucky needs her rest.
