People Are Falling In Love With This UPS Driver Who Takes Selfies With the Adorable Dogs on His Route

They say if you love what you do you'll never work a day in your life.

For one UPS driver with a passion and a camera the saying seems to be true.


When New Orleans UPS driver Jason (Jay) Hardesty was reassigned a new neighborhood he noticed many of the dogs along his delivery route were rather friendly. So Jay began taking selfies with them and showing off the pics on Instagram.

His heartwarming hobby has turned into a viral hit. People are falling in love with the charming series.

Now every Friday Jay posts a new selfie with one of the friendly pups he encounters along his route under the hashtag #PupsofJay.










In an interview with INSIDER Jay talked about how the series came to be.

"My old route that I was on, the dogs in that area weren't really too friendly. They would always want to be guard dogs, or aggressive dogs because it was more of a family area."
"But when they moved me to a certain part of town which has not as many families, the dogs are a lot nicer."
"I realized they would let you pick them up and pet them,."
"So I guess maybe a few years ago I started throwing up a dog on it every week. Just a cute pup."







Once a local secret, Jay's account skyrocketed to national attention after one of his two-legged customers, New York Times best selling author Jami Attenberg, decided to tell others about the priceless selfies.


Over night Jay went from 2000 followers to more than 40,000 and now his adorable series of selfies are spreading joy well beyond New Orleans.






Jay, who also enjoys taking photos of the vibrantly colored homes around NOLA, told INSIDER that despite meeting many more friendly pooches during the week, he limits himself to just one post, usually on Friday's to end the work week on a high note.

"I don't want my account to be known as a dog account, but I'll still find a cute dog and post it that week."

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:
