The world is still in the development of a vaccine for the novel coronavirus 2019. Different companies from different countries are racing to stop this pandemic. In the meantime, the various governments are still imposing lockdowns and other measures to prevent the spread. Modern heroes, aside from our front liners, are blessings in disguise for those who are under strict lockdown in their homes. One of these modern heroes is a dog.
In this video uploaded by channel 4 News, a golden retriever, named Sunny, is seen delivering groceries to his human neighbour amidst the pandemic. As reported, this furry angel in disguise would pick his neighbour’s shopping list and give it to his owner, who, in turn, would go to the grocery store to get what was on the list. The neighbour Renee is a vulnerable person in this time of the pandemic, as she has underlying health conditions so she cannot really leave her house to shop for basic necessities and risk catching the virus.

After doing the grocery shopping, Sunny would deliver these bags of essentials to Renee. Not only that, but Renee is also very thankful for the fact that she always has a visitor in the form of the jolly Sunny. She said it makes her feel happy, brighter, and not really isolated at all.
For most people, the acts of the golden retriever may seem small, but to Renee, it all means a lot that she will cherish these small acts of her neighbour and her golden retriever as long as she lives.
