FedEx Driver Starts Taking Pups With Him On Deliveries After Doggy Day Care Closes.

For dachshunds Chorizo and Cocoa, quarantine means they can’t see their furry friends for awhile.

The 2-year-old pups usually go to doggy day care three times a week while their dad Daniel Nava delivers FedEx packages in Oceanside, California. With the facility closed because of COVID-19, Daniel knew he had to come up with a plan so they wouldn’t have to stay home all day.

That’s when he decided they could ride with him! Using some old work shirts, Daniel made them adorable uniforms — and even bought them their own sunglasses.

Once the cuties had their gear, they were ready to hit the road!

As it turns out, this isn’t the first time Chorizo and Cocoa have joined Daniel on his truck. They’ve also gotten dressed up to make a few special deliveries on Christmas Eve!

“The decision to bring them with me on deliveries was not easy, but my supervisor is very understanding,” Daniel said. “I had brought them with me before with no safety issues — I have them on a harness that is anchored down to my seat while we drive.”

They’ve both already proven themselves to be very good helpers. They even have a knack for stealing customers’ hearts!

“They seem to enjoy their time on the route,” Daniel added. “Sometimes we stop by at the local neighborhood parks, and I let them run around for a little bit.”

Plus, as far as these two are concerned, any time with their dad is time well spent.
