Is it even possible to love dogs more than I already do? Because each day I promise you, I love them more. It is unbelievable how smart and completely adorable they can be! This story is about one special guide dog, named Thai, who loves to lead his person to their favorite places.

Your heart will have a hard time resisting this dog-human pair. Thai is the guide dog of visually impaired, Danielle Sykora. Like every other dog I know, Thai loves treats and thoroughly enjoys being spoiled; and this one’s not afraid to spoil himself! Danielle’s sister, Michele, captured a video of Thai guiding Danielle to his favorite store, “Cool Dog Gear.” Just going by the name, I can guess why this is Thai’s top pick for destinations.

“My sister’s guide dog always sneakily walks her into this store without her knowing. I love dogs, man.” This was posted by Michele to her Twitter account. The video has been an Internet sensation since being posted with over seven million views and more than 150,000 re-tweets.

Thai has been with Michele for four years and they enjoy doing everything together. “If they walk by a cool place and Thai thinks Danielle would like it, he will stop in front of the store kind of as his way of saying ‘Look you might like it in here!” adds Michele.

Besides stopping in to his favorite store, Thai makes sure to guide Danielle to one of her favorite haunts – Starbucks. There is one special place this guide dog would love to bring Danielle – “The Ellen Show”! We’ll see if Ellen notices.

Michele’s post has received a great response; good dog, Thai!
