The trope of mail carriers being afraid of dogs, and dogs chasing or barking at them, is pretty common in media. There's even plenty of funny clothing and toys commemorating that strained relationship.

The reality can be often quite different, though.

One mail carrier's daughter shared a text she got from her father, Fernando, about one of the dogs on his route, and it's getting a lot of attention on Twitter.


@amorningsting said that her father likes to give treats to the dogs on his route. Apparently the dogs eagerly await his deliveries, and he enjoys making them happy.

She then shared a text that she received from her father, and it's breaking people's hearts.

He said:

"Awww just found out one of my buddies passed away yesterday. Gretchen was a huge German Shepherd but she was a teddy bear 🐻"


Fernando included a photo of the note Gretchen's family left, along with a bag of dog treats.

The note read:

"Gretchen passed away yesterday. She asked me to ask you if you would share her treats that she never got to finish with the other dogs on your route."
"She always enjoyed seeing you come to the door and was always happy to get a snack from you. Thank you, The Cimino Family."

The tweet now has over 869,000 likes, and almost 5,300 replies.

The story seems to have hit most people squarely in the feels.





Gretchen's family found out about the note being shared on Twitter and commented, sharing a video of Gretchen waiting eagerly for Fernando to deliver the mail.





It is great to know that one mail carrier is doing his best to make the dogs on his route happy. Dogs touch our hearts and make our lives better by just existing.

Remember way back when the internet wasn't a flaming dumpster fire?

Yeah, us either.

The internet has always been a mess, but it's also always been beautiful.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!
