Four years ago, Danielle Sykora was assigned her service dog, Thai. Since then he has helped a lot with her visual impairment – and made her laugh.
You see, Thai also has needs. And sometimes they have to come before Sykoras, especially in terms of toys and treats from his favorite spot in the mall.
At the weekend, Sykora and Thai travel from Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, where she's currently a student, to her home in New Jersey. During these visits, Sykora and her sister, Michele, enjoy shopping in the mall. On a trip, Sykora was accompanied by her father, who made an interesting (and funny) remark about Thai. The dog was called a pet shop called Cool Dog Gear.
"The first time my sister ever went to this mall, she was with my dad and just walked into the store without her knowledge," Michele told The Dodo. "When we were there the second time, I wanted to see it myself, so we went to the pet store and it was back in there!"
At that time she had her cell phone ready and recorded the sneaky movement of the puppy. As I said, Thai has needs.

Purpose Sykora's family agrees that he is such a good boy, he deserves to pamper himself. "Thai and Danielle only have a relationship with him," said Michele. "Even if Thai is not working and we are home when she leaves, the room he will get up and follow everywhere."
