Quarantined Mexican Man Sends Dog To Buy Him Cheetos

People around the world have gone into self-quarantine in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Some countries and U.S. states have even gone into “lockdown,” encouraging residents to stay home unless they need to make essential trips to the grocery store, pharmacy, or work.

One Mexican man named Antonio Muñoz was only three days into his quarantine when he started to develop a craving for Cheetos. Even though there is a store right across the street from him, Muñoz didn’t want to risk leaving quarantine to go out in public.

So he crafted a plan to get his desired cheesy snack. And as crazy as it may have seemed, it worked!

What was his plan, you ask? Muñoz decided to send his dog to the store to fetch some Cheetos for him!

On Facebook, Muñoz shared photos that showed how he equipped his pet Chihuahua for her run to the store. He wrote a note for the shopkeeper and attached it to his dog’s collar along with some cash.

The note 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.”

Muñoz then sent his dog on her merry way, and she took off across the street to the nearby store. After a few minutes, Muñoz was thrilled to see his dog trotting back with a bag of Cheetos in her mouth.

He posted some photos of her triumphant return on Facebook, and you can see them below.


Now that’s one smart pup, and one resourceful owner!

We can’t blame Muñoz for going to extreme lengths to make sure he had his favorite snack. And clearly his dog was up to the task!
