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,

In his text messages, he described Gretchen as being a teddy bear and a huge German Shepherd.

I’m not crying, you’re crying.

More than 800,000 people have liked the post and are all broken up over the sweet note.

Looks like it’s time to go give your dog a hug.
