Recently, this good boy named Sunny went viral for lending a helping paw to his neighbor
Sunny’s owner Eveleth has known Renee for over a decade, so when the pandemic started, she didn’t hesitate to assist her elderly neighbor. As it turns out, Renee suffers from chronic respiratory issues and relies on an oxygen tank. It is known that COVID-19 is dangerous to people who have underlying conditions, especially respiratory problems. So, to protect herself, Renee decided to self-isolate. That’s when Eveleth decided to make Sunny her neighbor’s delivery doggo.
After his neighbor Renne self-isolated, Sunny started delivering her groceries
The delivery process is quite simple: “She got the list, she gave it to Sunny, Sunny brought it to me. I went to the store, got her groceries, and he delivered them all to her,” Eveleth told KKTV.
Sunny has been performing his duties to Renee for the past few weeks without fail. “What a wonderful thing, just a sweet thing. So he started doing the schlepping, back and forth. It’s been fun, it’s been a real treat,” Renee said.
Not only does Sunny help her with social distancing, but the good boy also makes her feel less alone. “Little things like Sunny coming over to visit is nice and it makes you feel good. It’s a way of communicating,” Renee said.
What makes Sunny’s assistance even better than a person’s is that, according to the World Health Organization, dogs can’t get or pass COVID-19 to humans. “There is no evidence that a dog, cat or any pet can transmit COVID-19,” the organization said in its statement.
