Mail carriers and dogs are a topic of mixed stories that you may have heard. Some mail carriers carry pepper spray and have to dodge aggressive dogs all in a days work. There are also the heartwarming stories of dogs and mail carriers becoming best buddies. This is one of the sweet stories with a tear-jerking twist.
A Twitter user shared a story about her dad who is a mail carrier. He said that her dad loved dogs and would bring treats for the dogs on his route. One day though, he received a note with sad news.
One of the dogs on his route had passed away. The note written by the owner of the dog was attached to a bag of Milkbones. The owner wanted the Milkbones to be shared with other dogs on his route. To make matters more real and sad, the owner wrote it from the dog’s perspective.
Take a look for yourself.
While this is very sad, it also shows kindness and compassion found in people. The mailman was very kind to give treats to the dogs on his route. In return, as you can read from the note, the owner of the dog was equally compassionate.

My wife and I were told about Gretchen’s letter to Fernando being on Twitter. I can’t begin to tell y’all how much it has meant to us seeing how much love and support y’all have shown our girl. She was the absolute best. This is a short video of her seeing her mailman. pic.twitter.com/uK9Y2BtKtO
