There is a very good boy in Colorado who’s been doing his part to help others during this Wuhan Flu epidemic.

Karen Evelth’s neighbor Renee has medical conditions that make her susceptible to getting the Wuhan Flu. How to help? 

Karen trained her dog Sundance to go over to Renee’s house to get her grocery list every day. Every night, he delivers the groceries.  I’d like to see how that works out when Renee asks for beef, but that’s just because I’d met my dogs Gideon and Levi.  I’m sure Sundance does a very good job showing restraint.

“He’s a hero for sure,” Karen said.

WGN9 has the story:

It started with a test try but it quickly became clear Sunny wanted to help.

“He just did it, it was, all of a sudden, and he was here, and that’s my job, and I’m gonna do it – so it was wonderful,” Renee said.

“She could not believe it, she always runs to the window to see that ‘oh my God I can’t believe he did it again, and again, and again,’” Karen said.

Of course, there’s something in it for him too.

“He does get his treats, he’s motivated by those for sure. But he’s really special to me, and I’d be lost without him because he helps me so much, so I wanted him to help other people. That’s exactly what he did. Pretty proud,” Karen explained.

Karen says her dog has been doing this for a few weeks now and they’ll keep it going as long as they have to. It’s no surprise Sunny brings a little brightness to the world.

How awesome!  I love stories of dogs helping others in need. May we all be inspired by Sundance and help someone today!
