UPS Drivers Have a Facebook Group About Dogs They Meet on Their Routes and It's Adorable | 22 Words

It's a commonly known fact of life that dogs make everything better. Feeling sad? A dog will cheer you up. Lonely? A dog will be there! Stressed out at work? Dog.

Well, one man who works as a delivery worker for UPS had this idea exactly and decided to dedicate a Facebook page to all of his wholesome encounters with dogs (and a variety of other unexpected animals...) while out and about delivering parcels.

The Facebook page, which was appropriately named UPS Dogs, instantly blew up and now, hundreds of different UPS drivers have been able to share their adorable experiences on the internet.


Being a delivery driver isn't always an easy job.
