A sneaky dog helps himself to a snack on a counter top by using problem-solving skills we previously thought only humans possessed. Smart dog! Now go get our wallet and car keys.

At first, this intrepid pooch tries flinging himself boldly at the snack. But when that doesn't work, he starts to mull over other solutions in his doggy brain.

So, he pushes an office chair over to the counter, swings it into position and leaps to where the food awaits. He even goes back a second time at a later point to polish off the meal, looking exceedingly guilty all the while.

Did this crafty pooch figure it out on his own or was he trained to do this as some have suggested?
