Good boy fetches Cheetos for self-isolating owner
This is one well-trained chihuahua
A self-isolating man from Mexico is sending his pet chihuahua to the shop for Cheetos, and it works a charm.
Antonio Munoz was three days into his self-isolation when he developed cravings for Cheetos. Keen to comply to the government's request to stay home but for absolute essentials, he had to work out a way of getting his hands on the cheesy confectionary without leaving the premises.
Enter Chokis, Munoz's chihuahua. Equipped with a note and the exact amount of change, this courteous canine courageously collected the coveted crisps for Antonio.
The note on Chokis’ collar read: ‘Hello sir of the store, can you sell my dog some orange – not red – Cheetos. In his collar he brings $20. If you don’t take good care of my dog, he will bite. From, the neighbour across the street’.
A clear, concise and some might say overly aggressive message, but when letting your pooch out in to the world there's no telling what kind of characters he could bump into.
This first journey was a success, and the helpful hound was subsequently sent twice more. Miraculously, all three journeys have resulted in Mr Munoz eating crisps.
Munoz, photographed here in front of his favourite urinal, told Metro.co.uk: ‘Chokis delivered the Cheetos this time and on two other occasions but for different potato chip flavours’.
That's right, this is not a one-trick-pony; it's a three-flavour-dog. When Chokis isn't running errands for his owner, he likes to pose in fashionable dog coats. He's currently working on his own version of Zoolander's 'blue steel': he calls it, 'maniacally staring down the lens'.
And no, he's not going to be spreading the virus while he makes his trips. Research has shown that pets cannot catch Coronavirus; they can neither spread it nor suffer the symptoms. Read here for more info.
Therefore, this good boy is safe to keep trotting his way to and from the local offy.
