    When A Dog On A Mailman's Route Passed Away, The Owners Gave Him Her Treats

    Bring on the waterworks. 😭

    As if it’s even a debate anymore, dogs are the absolute best and we don’t deserve them. Period.

    And, if you’re a dog lover, you will most likely (absolutely) shed a tear or two at this tweet.

    My dad is a mailman and he likes to give dogs on his route treats. Today he told us one of the dogs on his route passed away and his owners gave him this bag of treats with this note 😭

    It reads: "My dad is a mailman and he likes to give dogs on his route treats. Today he told us one of the dogs on his route passed away and his owners gave him this bag of treats with this note 😭"

    Is there something in your eye yet?

    "Eyelean's" dad, Fernando Barbosa, sent this text message. Aww!

    It reads: "Awwww just found out one of my buddies passed away yesterday... Gretchen was a huge German shepherd but she was a teddy bear."

    OMG and the note!

    The note from Gretchen's owners 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."

    Needless to say, people were absolutely destroyed in the reactions to this tweet.

    Can you blame them?

    Some people weren't even prepared for this next-level sadness.

    @amorningsting this made me sad as shit what the fuck

    It's okay, guys. Just hug your pooch a little bit tighter today when you get home.

    P.S. Gretchen's mom and dad saw the tweet. Awww!

    @amorningsting 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.
