Even though we all know that the relationship between mailmen and dogs usually don’t end pretty, we shouldn’t believe the stereotypes so much.
Instead of waiting for the mailman with growls and anger ready to rip off the mail he delivers or even his hands, this dog actually loves his mailman. The dog waits for the mailman on the family driveway every day to get a hug from his amazing friend.
Moose is a one-year-old Golden Retriever puppy from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He made an amazing bond with his new mailman which was assigned the pup’s route a couple of weeks before.
Moose heard the truck coming to the house one day and insisted on being let out to see who is coming. When he saw the postman, just as happy to see Moose as Moose was to see him, they got off to a great start.
Moose waited for the mailman on the ground and wagging his tail while the man approached him. When the mailman reached out to pet the puppy, Moose jumped up and embraced the mailman with a hug.
The retriever’s owner, Meghan Gruszynski, made a statement that explained this cute moment, saying “I loved how much he loved our boy and loved how much Moose loved saying hi to him.”
Every time the mailman has a schedule to visit Moose’s home, Moose makes sure that he’s outside to see him.
This amazing friendship was even more special to the family once they found out that the mailman’s puppy had passed away recently, making his visits with Moose a hundred times more special for him. Meghan added that the mailman “loves how much love Moose gives him every time he is out on his route.”
Seeing this moment not only warms the mailman’s heart, but the family’s as well. They know that they’re able to give back to the mailman a very special package which will keep him motivated through his hardships at work.
The dog owner cannot wait for it to keep on happening for years to come, saying that it’s amazing seeing them love each other so much.
