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 ???? pic.twitter.com/JA46PU60a4— eyelean (@amorningsting) April 1, 2019
The mailman stopped by the home on Monday and found a bag of treats waiting for him. It included a note from the dog’s owner, who wanted him to know that Gretchen, their dog had passed away.
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.
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.
