Sometimes, when life gets difficult, when reality becomes too much, or when you feel the broad hands of existential dread knocking at your door, it's best to just let your eyes cross, your jaw go slack, drool, and stare at thirty pictures of dogs.

If today is one of those days, luckily for you, Jay, a UPS man from New Orleans, has arranged just the thing for you. On his delivery route, Jay pursued the bold idea of photographing himself with every dog that crossed his path. The result is something truly amazing. We've spent far too long staring at Jay's pictures - and now you can too.
