You've likely seen a Google Street View car slowly driving through your neighborhood, recording in detail so people can explore the area from afar. But when the terrain isn't vehicle-friendly, some street view services hire humans to strap on cameras and hit the trails.

A person working for a service called Daum was recording Ulleung-gun, a small island in South Korea, when what looks like a stray dog decided to tag along.

The photogenic pup walked ahead, seemingly eager to lead the way through wide trails, heavy brush and waterside routes. The dog went up stairs and walkways. He seemed to stop and sniff a few times, but even when he was next to the water, he didn't pause to admire the view.

When the photographer lagged behind, the dog turned around and waited.

No word on whether the photographer had a backpack stuffed with food, or the dog was just happy to have some company.

It looks like the helpful guide dog gave the tour somewhere around July 2010. Check out the site and explore for yourself. The panoramic pooch photobombs nearly the entire trip.
