Even the most well-trained of our four-legged friends have a mischievous streak in them.
On Friday, Michele Sykora shared a video of her sister Danielle out at the mall with her guide dog Thai.
"My sister's guide dog always sneakily walks her into this store without her knowing," Michele wrote on Twitter. "I love dogs, man."

That's right: Cool Dog Gear.
That video has had almost 6.5 million views at the time of writing. Michele followed it up with this adorable photo of Danielle and Thai together.

"The first time it ever happened, my dad was with my sister and he just wandered right in," Michele told BuzzFeed. "It was the first time he did it."
When she was next in the mall with her dad and sister, Michele explained that her dad told her what Thai had done last time — so just in case it happened again, Michele got her phone out.
Unsurprisingly, the video proved popular on Twitter.

We suspect business may be about to rocket at Cool Dog Gear.
