Dog Sent to Store With Note in Collar to Buy Cheetos for Self-Isolating Owner

March 27, 2020

What a good boy!

After many states invoked stay-at-home orders due to the coronavirus, it has become harder and more dangerous to leave your home.

The need to isolate has forced many people to get a little creative with how they shop for groceries and supplies.

One man in Mexico seems to have taken some inspiration from a viral meme that suggests you ask your dog to go shopping for you because dogs cannot contract coronavirus.

The man, Antonio Muñoz, documented the whole experience on his Facebook page.

On his third day of self-quarantine, he was craving Cheetos but didn’t want to risk exposure, so he sent Muñoz's best friend, his pet Chihuahua Chokis, to go pick them up.

Muñoz attached a $20 bill and a note to Chokis’ collar and sent him to the store across the street.

The note (written in Spanish) read: "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 neighbor."

The success of Operation Cheetos hinged on Chokis not getting distracted by outdoor smells, the workers reading the note, and the money not getting stolen by someone.

However, Chokis proved to be a reliable little delivery pup.

Muñoz shared photos of his dog making his way back to the apartment from the store.

And behold: he was carrying a bag of regular Cheetos in his mouth.

It’s unclear if Muñoz got his change back, but if he did, we hope he used it to tip Chokis for his hard work and dedication.
