HUNTINGTON VILLAGE, NEW YORK – MAY 03: Long Island Jewish Hospital Emergency Department Technician Richard Fernandez receives a beer delivery from Karen and Mark Heuwetter and their two dogs Buddy and Barley on May 03, 2020 in Huntington Village, New York. Mark and Karen Heuwetter own the Six Harbors Brewery and have trained their two Golden Retrievers Buddy and Barley to help them deliver beer to their customers during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The dogs are fitted with a four pack of empty beer cans around their necks and meet customers at their doorstep while Mark and Karen carry the beer to deliver behind them. It has been comforting for the dogs who are enjoying the exercise and meeting people along the way. The customers love seeing Buddy and Barley and enjoy petting and greeting them to go with their beer delivery. (Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images)
