Quarantined Owner Sends Dog to Store for Cheetos

The coronavirus pandemic has health officials everywhere begging us to practice social distancing–an easy way for all of us to do our part in easing the rapid spread of the disease.

That leaves most of us at home in isolation without our daily trips to restaurants, parks, stores or any other unnecessary places. Something as simple as walking to the convenience store to quell a snack craving is off limits these days.

Yeah, it sucks, but the alternative is worse. So here we are, finding creative ways to continue our daily lives as normally as possible… except alone, or at least six feet away from everyone else.

One Man in Mexico Found a Creative Way to Get Cheetos While in Self-Quarantine

One man from Pesquería, Nuevo León in Mexico found himself fighting a craving for Cheetos, but he knew that going to the store would expose him to others and put him at a higher risk of infection.

But with some ingenuity and a little help from a furry friend, Antonio Muñoz got his Cheetos without ever leaving quarantine.

Yes, This Is Antonio’s Dog

“Day three of quarantine,” Antonio wrote on Facebook. “I really wanted my ‘Cheetos.'”

The Note

Under his dog’s collar, Antonio attached some cash and a handwritten note about what he needed. Then, he sent his pup to the store across the street, in hopes that the Cheetos, his change, and his dog would make it back.

The note asks the store’s shopkeeper to please sell his dog some Cheetos, and explains that there is money also attached to the chihuahua’s collar. Antonio specifies that he’d like the regular orange kind, as the red ones are too hot. He also made sure to warn that his dog will bite if not treated nicely.

Although the dog clearly looks a little confused about the task at hand (hey, this might have been her first errand trip!), I can assure you that she got the job done.

A Job Well Done

As you can see, Antonio’s chihuahua saved the day, bringing a bag of orange Cheetos back to her owner across the street.
