On a regular, pre-coronavirus pandemic day, we have more than enough reasons to love dogs: their unconditional love, companionship, loyalty, and the ways they make us laugh, to name a few. Unsurprisingly, that’s still proven to be true during these times. There’s a dog delivering groceries to his self-quarantined neighbor who is at high risk of getting sick, and it’s just another situation that’ll make you want to sprint to a shelter and adopt every animal in there.

In Manitou Springs, Colorado, 7-year-old golden retriever Sunny has been helping out his neighbor Renee Hellman, according to KKTV 11 News. Sunny and his owner Karen Eveleth have lived next to Hellman for more than a decade. Hellman’s health issues and reliance on oxygen to breathe put her at high risk for getting sick from coronavirus, so Eveleth and her pup teamed up to get groceries for her. It’s simple: Sunny is in charge of retrieving Hellman’s grocery list, Eveleth buys the groceries, then Sunny delivers them all.

"Little things like Sunny coming over to visit is nice, and it makes you feel good,” Hellman told KKTV 11 News. “It's a way of communicating."

The dynamic neighbor-pet duo has been helping Hellman with her groceries for weeks now. Eveleth hopes their act of kindness will make people smile. "Anybody can do something small, that can be so helpful," Eveleth told KKTV 11 News.
