Mailman Who Constantly Leaves Treats For Dogs On Route Receives Heartbreaking Letter From Owner

Everyone loves a good heartwarming story about kindness and animals. How can we pass them up? Dogs are adorable, furry little babies who live their lives to make us happy. But, this one is definitely a tear-jerker.

Twitter user Eyelean recently shared a moving story about her father, who’s a mailman who happens to absolutely love dogs. Her dad loves dogs so much that he always leaves treats for the dogs on his route.

On Monday, the mailman discovered a baggy of treats and a note from one of the dog’s owners letting him know their dog had passed away. Honestly—I’m crying.


The note reads:

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

In his texts, the mailman described Gretchen as a huge German Shepherd and a teddy bear. The now-viral tweet has garnered over 800,000 likes and users are distraught over the sweet note.

People even shared pictures of their own dogs in hopes of cheering up the mailman.

Honestly, so beautiful!
