In Texas, a young girl has a father who is a mailman. And often during his route, he will give out treats to dogs at many of the homes where he delivers. Then, one day, her dad came home from work somewhat sad. And he showed his young daughter why.
Someone on his route had left him a bag of doggie treats with a note inside. That note read: “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, The Cimino Family.”
The young girl was also saddened by the dog’s passing, and posted the note on Twitter.
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
Gretchen’s owners happened to see the post, then posted a video of Gretchen, a German shepherd, as she watched the mailman walking nearby from her front door, barking softly and wagging her tail happily. Gretchen’s owners said all the love and support in the posts sent their way meant an awful lot to them.
