Dogs can be incredibly clever and the tricks they can learn are quite impressive. One smart Labrador may take the cake, though, for a trick his owner taught him. Every time she says, “Gin O’Clock,” the dog fetches her a drink! In a video shared by Daily Mail, Janice is outside working in her garden in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, when she decides it’s time for a drink break.

The Daily Mail reported that the dog doesn’t just fetch gin and tonics, either. According to them, Janice shared that bear will bring her beer, cider, or bottles of wine if asked.
