A man who has been self-isolating due to the coronavirus pandemic decided to send his dog to the shop with a list and money attached to his collar as he was desperately craving crisp.
As people around the world are being told to stay at home to protect themselves and others from coronavirus, some have been left to rely on others to pick up their essentials… including one man who sent his pet chihuahua on a mission to buy him some crisp from the shop!
Antonio Muñoz, from Mexico, was just three days into his quarantine when he had an urging for crisp he couldn’t possibly ignore. So he wouldn’t have to leave the house, he decided to enlist the help of his doting chihuahua and sent him on the ultimate errand.
In particular, Antonio was craving Cheetos and so he got out a pen and paper and wrote: “Hello Mr Shopkeeper. Please sell my dog some Cheetos, the orange kind, not the red ones, they’re too hot.
“She has $20 attached to her collar. WARNING: She will bite if not treated right. Your front neighbour.”
He then tucked this note, along with the money, in the dog’s collar and sent it on its way.
From the pictures the owner shared, you can clearly see the chihuahua looked very nervous about the task he had been given. But somehow, he returned back with the orange Cheetos (not the ‘too hot’ red ones) and was holding them between in its gnashers.
Proud of his furry best friend, Antonion took a picture of the incredible moment his dog trotted back down the street clutching the bag of crisps and he uploaded the image to Facebook with the caption: “Day three of quarantine. I wanted my Cheetos.”
Since then, the post has garnered over 241,000 shares and has also been posted on Twitter, where people found the story absolutely hilarious and adorable.
One person couldn’t believe the man’s dedication to getting his snack, responding: “This broke me… thank u for the laughter.”
Whilst another commented: “Does the dog know GPS?”
Another person replied: “Low bar: dog gets you a beer from the fridge. High bar: dog commutes to get you snacks, returns with change.”
