A jewellery store owner’s video has gone viral after his husky ‘guard dog’ continued to nap when a fake armed robbery training exercise was held at the shop.
Police visited Worawut Lomwanawong’s store in Thailand to train staff on how to react if they were held at gunpoint and forced to give up the jewels.
CCTV footage shows Lucky the dog sleeping in front of the shop counter as a fake armed robber enters, pointing a gun at staff and making demands.
Despite the commotion and threats being made to her owner, Lucky the dog doesn’t move a single muscle and continues to sleep as her owner is forced to hand over a bag of ‘cash’ before the criminal walks out of the store unchallenged.
The owner can be seen glancing at the dog in the hope she might attack the bandit or bark to raise the alarm, but gets nothing in return.
It’s fair to say Lucky failed the test and the hilarious video was uploaded to Facebook where it has racked up more than one million views.
But Lucky may have a good excuse, as her owner told Bored Panda: “This was Thai police training of what it would be like if a thief came into my store and stole all the jewellery.
“The armed robber in this video is a policeman that my dog Lucky already knew; maybe that’s why she did nothing.
“I found it very funny to see that she didn’t even try doing anything and continued to sleep.”
Worawut has been left blown away by the viral success of the clip and the interest in Lucky, and the video racked up plenty of comments from viewers who joked the ‘robber’ was fortunate that Lucky knew it was only a training exercise – otherwise it would have been a very different story.
How do you think Lucky did? Let us know in the comments.
