A Man Captured His Mail Carrier Stopping To Play With Their Dog Every Day

Secret friendships are formed every day :cryingemoji:.

The dog's owner, Michael Collins, has been observing the routine every day, and decided to record it to share the sweet interaction on Facebook with the world.

"Just want to share something cool!" Collins wrote.

According to Collins, the unidentified mail carrier stops to play with his 9-month-old pup "every day whether or not we have mail." He says he's particularly touched because most people find his pup's size threatening.

"He always gets over looked as a dangerous or unapproachable dog — maybe 'cause he's big, I am not sure," he wrote in a Facebook post. "He doesn't bark at them or growl (Maybe the odd couple times he barks at people but which dog doesn't). But this guy here always makes an effort to get off his bike to give him a hug and a pat!"


Collins says he wished he knew who the mail carrier was so he can properly thank him.

"I'm not sure who to tag on Facebook for him to see this! But thanks, man, keep up the good job and you've definitely got a friend waiting for ya!!"

He also wrote some mail carriers would unintentionally smack his last dog's nose with mail, when the dog wanted a pat. So he wants to give this mail carrier credit.

UPDATE! Collins tells BuzzFeed he's since gone out to say hi to, and personally thank, the mail man on his latest route.

He says they talked about "how crazy social media has taken off to support such a positive message."
