UPS Drivers Are Sharing Adorable Photos of the Dogs They Meet on Their Postal Routes – My Modern Met

Many dogs see postal workers as a threat. From a canine perspective, it looks like mail carriers are trespassing and leaving suspicious letters or packages for their humans almost every day. This seemingly relentless behavior would be pretty alarming for a dog that doesn’t understand what’s really happening is totally innocent. And some protective pups even take it upon themselves to destroy letters that come through the door. However, many UPS delivery drivers have made it their mission to show their neighborhood dogs that they mean no harm.

A Facebook page and Instagram account called UPS Dogs features tons of adorable photos and videos of canines greeting their local UPS parcel carriers. “UPS drivers deliver packages all day long,” reads the Facebook page description. “During each day, drivers encounter many dogs, most friendly and some not so nice. When time permits, drivers snap a photo and send it to UPS Dogs.” From mailmen cuddling bundles of puppies to drivers getting licked on the face, each photo showcases how dogs really are a (mail) man’s best friend.

UPS preparing for record peak holiday season – Spectrum News 1

UPS driver and Poughkeepsie native Jay Lefevre spent the spring distributing vital COVID-19 vaccines across the region.

Now, Lefevre and his fellow UPS drivers are kicking into high gear again for the holiday season.

“My route usually runs about eight-and-a-half, nine hours a day so not too bad,” said Lefevre. “I love what I do.”

They’re still delivering vaccines, but there are holiday gifts to deliver too.

Lefevre has practically grown up at UPS.
