Four roommates from Bristol, England were somewhat heartbroken when they discovered their new landlord didn't allow pets.

All four had grown up with dogs and not being able to have one was just plain sad.

Not to worry, though... these blokes hatched a plan that went down adorably and is now making rounds on the internet thanks to peak level cuteness.


During the course of their move and their time living in their new place, they noticed a very special neighbor.

Namely, this sassy lass who is clearly cooler than all of us:

The gentlemen spotted her looking out the window of a neighbor's home.

Knowing they couldn't have a dog themselves, they decided to reach out to the dog's owner in a letter and offer their services should the owner ever need any dog help. It pretty clearly translated to "hey can we hang out with your dog?" though.

The letter read:

"Dear neighbour,"
"We are four engineers that have recently moved into the area in the past 3-4 months. Our house is comprised of an Englishman, two Scotts, and a Welshman. Diversity."
"The other day, we noticed a four-legged friend looking at us out the window when we arrived home from work. He or she looked like the good-est boy/girl there is."
"If you ever need someone to walk him/her, we will gladly do so. If you ever get bored (we know you never will, but we can dream) we are more than happy to look after him/her."
"If you want to come over and bring him/her to brighten our day, you are more than welcome. If you want to walk past our balcony windows so we can see him/her, please do."
"We hope this doesn't come too strong, but our landlord won't allow pets and we've all grown up with animals. The adult life is a struggle without one."

We read it and needed to take a moment to process the cuteness.

All of us over here just sort of looked like:

Giphy

The gentlemen sent the letter off to their neighbor kind of expecting to never hear back, but what happened next has all of the internet swooning.

Believe it or not, they got a response!

Not from the neighbor, though.

From the dog, Stevie Ticks!

Yes that's her name and yes, it's amazing.

Stevie's response arrived in an envelope with her paw print on the back. In it, Stevie outlined the kind of dog she is (part Lab, part German Shepherd) and acknowledged that yes, she IS the good-est and would be happy to be friends. The sky-high cost of her friendship is a few ball tosses and some belly scratches which, let's be honest, the boys would have given her anyway.

Success!

One of the guys shared the update on Twitter...

...and people are in love.









If you're in the mood for pet pics, feel free to browse through the comments. It's a buffet of beautiful in there ... which we guess is one more thing we should be thanking Stevie and her new friends for.

Anyway, listen folks... follow your dreams. Shoot your shot. Try and befriend that adorable fur-baby you see every now and then. You never know how it might turn out.

It seems to have worked out well for Stevie Ticks and the lads.

And if all else fails, there's always adorable doggos of the stuffy variety, like this Tri-Colored Corgi Plush available here.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
