According to Lucky’s owner, Worawut, Lucky did not react to the mock robbery exercise because the “armed robber” was actually a Thai police officer who is familiar to the dog, and therefore, Lucky did not consider him to be a threat. He also points out to the fact that he did not call out to Lucky to let her know he (Worawut) was under duress. Worawut believes that had it been a real robbery incident, Lucky would have done something to deter the robber.
Worawut and Lucky met when Worawut moved to Chang Ma to start his jewelry business. At the time, Lucky was a stray dog who used to sleep at the convenience store near Worawut’s business. After noticing she was homeless and rarely had food to eat, Worawut took pity on the Husky and decided to adopt her. Ever since, Worawut considers Lucky to be part of his family.
At the time he took Lucky in, the dog was very ill, suffering from venereal granuloma and tick-borne disease. She was also pregnant, so Worawut had to wait for her to give birth to her puppies before she could be treated.
Before Worawut met and adopted Lucky, the dog had gone through a very rough life, and when he took her in, he wanted the next phase of her life to be full of luck. This is why he named the dog Lucky.
When sharing the CCTV footage on the internet, Worawut had no expectations, and was therefore surprised when the video went viral. At the time of publishing this article, the video has been viewed more than a million times.
