Clever dog rings doorbell at 2:00am after getting locked out

We've all been there. That heart-sinking moment when you get back late from a drunken night out, only to realize you've left your keys inside and you know you're going to have to ring the doorbell in order to get your parents to come and let you in.

There are few things more shameful as a teenager than having to thank your mom for opening the door to your drunk ass, as she stares at you with increasing disappointment. However, perhaps the best way to get locked out late at night and not bring shame to your family is by being the most adorable little pupper on the block.

Proving just how smart dogs can be, this adorable canine by the name of Chika managed to ring her owners' doorbell after getting locked out in the middle of the night.

Check out the hilarious video below:

In the video, the cunning Labrador-cross can be seen pacing the porch of her Georgia home after being accidentally locked out at 2:18am in the morning. And thanks to owners Robert and Angelia Fox's doorbell camera, Chika's next moves were all recorded.

Spotting the doorbell, the pooch manages her use her paw to ring in, causing the chimes to echo through the house. She then looks into the camera, before jumping down and awaiting her owners. But, Chika being a dog, she quickly becomes distracted by a noise in the background.

Realizing her first attempt was a fail, Chika rings the bell again - proving the first time was no fluke.

A lot of dogs are much smarter than we tend to give them credit for. Like this drama queen pit bull who pretends to faint to avoid having her nails trimmed:

After hearing the doorbell, Robert woke up, opened the door, only to find his beloved pet sat on the porch. He then realized she must have been left outside when he was locking up for the evening.

It just goes to show you - determination pays off, and dogs are the best things on the planet.
