UPS drivers make millions of deliveries every single day, and during their rounds, they often encounter dogs who are very happy to see them. One particular friendship emerged between a UPS delivery man and a Golden Retriever.
Every day, the man would load his UPS truck with the daily packages, and every day, a Golden Retriever seemed to be waiting for him in the same spot.
At first, the driver felt the dog might be a local person’s dog or perhaps he was lost. He continued on his route, but he always came upon the same adorable pooch in the same spot every day.
Since the pup kept appearing each day, the man decided to visit a local pet supply store, purchase some dog treats, and have them ready for the dog each day.
The dog enjoyed the tasty snacks and the UPS man would always deliver the treats along with a belly rub or ear scritch.
The unlikely friendship continued between the Golden and the driver until one day the man forgot to bring treats to his favorite canine. On that day, the determined dog took matters into his own paws.
While the man was walking home to home to deliver packages, the sneaky pooch hopped into the UPS truck.
His shift was almost over but he suddenly heard a loud thump near his truck, and he knew something had to be wrong. What he didn’t realize is his Golden Retriever friend stowed away in the truck!
At the end of the day, he was unloading the truck and he discovered the dog. The driver could not believe his eyes, but he took him back to the area where he first saw the animal. The dog scurried back to the home where the driver first encountered him.
The next day, everything became crystal clear, as a photo of the Golden Retriever went viral.
His owner attached a note around his neck which read, “The UPS man forgot to throw me a cookie so I snuck into his truck and took a ride around the neighborhood. He had to deliver me back to my house.”
Everyone got a good chuckle, and the UPS driver talked to the dog’s owner that day. He explained how the Golden Retriever waited for the UPS truck every day from the window and it became a part of his routine.
We love a happy ending like this and get the warm fuzzies knowing a dog and a delivery man created an adorable bond together. For more about this story, press play on the video below.
