Small and sausage-like he may be, but Dachshund Oliver is being hailed something of a champion by his owner Jessica Adario. The Canadian took a stroll with her dog to a nearby fast food restaurant and allowed him to carry it back all by himself, albeit under her watchful eye.

Doggy duties

It is not the first story of canine conscientiousness amid lockdowns and self-isolation. Last month we wrote about a dog that was sent to a shop to buy his master some Cheetos.

We also reported on quarantined Colorado woman Renee Hellman, who receives her groceries from her neighbour's Golden Retriever, Sunny.

Teach your dog commands. Learn about competitive obedience.

The Independent recently wrote about an owner who, along with her Bulldog Rocky, visits self-isolating residents in Middlesbrough, UK.

Jenny Bromfield visits those who are in need of company and distraction due to self-isolation.

Writes The Independent, Rocky gives out plenty of hugs and attention to those most in need.

37-year-old Ms Bromfield said, “Helping other people makes me feel like a valuable member of the community.

“I'm so proud of how social he is and I feel so much better in myself, knowing that I can help people get through their isolation periods a little easier.

If you know of someone in need of assistance, offer your services to them. Some people may not wish to depend on others, but there will be those who are in desperate need not just of provisions, but also of company.

Remember: Stay at home wherever possible, and take heed of the government’s advice.
