A boy thought of an amazing plan to satisfy his cravings for Cheetos by sending out his dog while he was in quarantine.
In these times when people have to socially isolate themselves to stop the spread of coronavirus, this guy proved that one can still have many ways to carry on with the usual routine.
After realizing that going out to buy something could increase his and others’ chances of getting infected, Antonio Munoz decided to send his dog on the mission instead.
“Day three of quarantine. I really wanted my ‘Cheetos’,” said Munoz.
The Mexican guy wrote a note describing what was demanded from the shopkeeper (along with a warning) and attached the piece of paper and $20 with his pup’s collar.
The trained chihuahua was then sent to the store that was on the other side of the street.
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.”
The little dog was confused and nervous, however, she succeeded in accomplishing the task.
Munoz who finally got his Cheetos without going out of quarantine shared the incident and dog’s photos on social media.
The successful execution of the mission opposes all those who claim that chihuahuas are just troublemaker animals and can’t be trained for a good purpose.
Patricia Johanson, a chihuahua breeder, says about the cute creature: “It’s true that chihuahuas have a reputation among some for being feisty, snappy, difficult to potty train, and loud.
“That’s because individuals differ significantly from one another within the breed.
“But they can definitely be trained and there are plenty of chihuahuas in competitive sports, shows, and in movies, showing that they absolutely can be trained to advanced levels.”
Speaking about chihuahua’s personality traits, Johanson added that they show terrier-like behavior which includes not caring to go along with their owner’s wishes.
Though chihuahuas rarely hunt, they are never scared of raising their voices.
Johanson said: “Tendency for guarding and resource-guarding aggression is a side-effect of being bred as devoted companions.”
Johanson suggested awarding the pup with small rewards on showing good or desired behaviors instead of applying reinforcement tricks to train them.
She said: “The goal is for your dog to repeat behaviors that earn their rewards, like treats or affection. Rewards can include food, special treats, praise, and petting, playing with a favorite toy and so on.”
