Dogs might be ‘man’s best friend’, but they typically don’t like anyone who enters their owner’s property unannounced, which is why they normally don’t get along with mail carriers.
So when one Athens, Louisiana woman saw the neighborhood UPS driver sitting in her driveway petting her three dogs and taking a selfie with them, she grabbed her camera and started filming the refreshingly sweet interaction between the two historic ‘enemies’.
“Doniel is incredibly well known in our area, he is always extremely happy, caring, courteous, and the most kind-hearted man,” owner Staci Burns said about her UPS driver, Doniel Kidd. Burns shared the sweet moment on Facebook, and the video quickly went viral with over 1.4 million views.
However, Staci explained that this isn’t the first time Kidd had gone above and beyond for her dogs. While driving on his regular route one day, Kidd noticed Staci’s dog, Reba, sitting on the side of the road. “We live in the country and she went through a phase of going off on adventures and also following me when I left without my knowledge,” Staci said. “Doniel saw her miles from home and pulled over to get her. Of course, she hopped right in and he delivered her home.”
“He asks about her if he doesn’t see her,” Burns said. “She loves to jump up in the truck and beg him to take her with him.”
Watch the entire video below to see the sweet thing this woman caught her delivery man doing with her dogs.
