Amid the current times, many doggy daycares have been forced to close their doors. With his two playful dachshunds missing out on the daily playtime they would usually get at daycare; a Fed Ex driver was left with no choice but to bring his furry friends along on his routes!

Daniel Nava has two rambunctious Dachshunds that are used to spending their days at the local puppy daycare. To keep Chorizo and Cocoa entertained while their favorite daycare is closed, he knew it was time to come up with a backup plan. Though he was a bit hesitant at first, Daniel decided it may be best to bring his two best buds to work instead of leaving them home alone each day. While he knew the two pups would be thrilled to spend some extra time with dad, he had no idea that his furry BFF’s were about to take the dog-loving world by storm.

“The decision to bring them with me on deliveries was not easy but my supervisor is very understanding. Also, 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.” – Daniel Nava

From the moment that Chorizo and Cocoa stepped into the Fed Ex truck, it’s as if they had been doing this for years. They immediately settled into the delivery routine, proudly standing by their dad with each stop.

Aside from their impressive work ethic was their ability to instill joy in each person that crossed their path. Chorizo and Cocoa made sure to stand tall and proud on each delivery stop they made, giving passerby the chance to sneak in tons of head pats and photos!

As if the two pups weren’t adorable enough, Daniel took it up a notch and gave them their very own Fed Ex uniforms. Daniel was able to craft tiny doggy t-shirts from his old work uniforms to help the pair appear more professional. For an added touch, he even gave the pups doggy sunglasses!

Seeing these hardworking pups in their Fed Ex uniform brings joy to each person they pass. These times are certainly challenging, making a delivery team like Chorizo and Cocoa much appreciated. We don’t know about you, but we hope these adorable ride alongs continue even after the doggy daycare reopens!
