The dogs on this mailman’s route meant a special treat delivery. Recently a Twitter user shared that her dad would always carry treats and gifts for the dogs on his route. He was not only appreciated by his 4-legged friends but by their owners too. One day during his route, however, he received a note from one of his regulars with some sad news, their dog had passed away. While normally this would be cause for tears, the dog owners decided to pay it forward in honor of their pet and the story is truly wholesome.
This Twitter user just went viral for sharing the most wholesome story about her mailman dad.
Texas twitter user @amorningsting tweeted that her dad is a mailman that gives treats to all the dogs he visits on his route. Recently one of his furry friends passed away, and his owners gave him this bag of treats with this note.
In a text to his daughter, he told her that it was his buddy Gretchen, a huge German Shepherd, that had died, along with a photo of some dog treats and a heart-wrenching note that Gretchen’s owners had typed up.
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.”
And the internet felt the pain too:
What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
Rest in peace, Gretchen.
