Mailman and big dog share a heartwarming daily routine
Mailmen and dogs are often considered sworn enemies — but this unlikely duo is tearing those boundaries down.
Michael Collins of Tauranga, New Zealand, recently posted footage to Facebook of his 9-month-old pup's daily rendezvous with the mailman. Spoiler: It includes a lot of smiling and petting, and it's clear the two are great friends.
For Collins, the friendship is particularly poignant because his big dog doesn't always get such a positive reaction. "He always gets over looked as a dangerous or unapproachable dog," he wrote — which is exactly what makes this unlikely camaraderie so heartwarming.
Of course, it wouldn't be a friendship fairy tale without a slight air of mystery. Collins isn't sure what the mailman's name is, but he's on the lookout for leads.
"Thanks man," he wrote. "Keep up the good job and you've definitely got a friend waiting for ya!!"
