Any job is certainly more pleasurable when you deal with awesome people, and it can be even more satisfying when your clientele includes a few furry, four-legged friends to brighten your day.
Postal workers and package carriers are quite accustomed to receiving enthusiastic greetings from dogs along their delivery routes. The buoyant spirits of these excited pups can provide quite the boost to an otherwise routine work day, which many carriers appreciate. One UPS driver went so far as to create a Facebook group devoted to the pooches that UPS drivers come across while out on delivery.
Here are some of the adorable dogs that welcome these package carriers in the special charming way that only canines can.

5. What’s In The Truck???
Ellie waits with bated breath for one of her favorite humans to arrive: the UPS driver. This Waunakee, Wisconsin shop might just be waiting for another routine package, but the shop pup looks like she knows something else is in store for her.
4. Time To Fetch!
This UPS driver from north Iowa has something special for all of his customers. In the case of these two labs, that special delivery happens to be treats and a game of fetch. Apparently, no stick is too big, as evidenced by what one of the hilarious pups is carrying to the truck!
3. Where Are The Keys?
Some pups really get into the whole UPS delivery thing and want to help out so much that they take matters into their own hands, er, paws. Meeks from Vermont is all geared up to drive the truck, even if the tiny pooch can’t quite reach the pedals.
2. I Got This
At some stops, delivery drivers have furry helpers they can rely on to make sure the package reaches the right person. This four-legged fellow eagerly answers the call of duty. What a good boy!
1. Puppy Love
Few things beat having a pack of “wild” puppies waiting to greet you with their excitement and love. Dean in Cleveland, Tennessee, clearly has the best job in the world.
Whether they bark or woof — or in some cases, neigh and bleat — having these lovable four-legged friends is certainly a welcome addition to any UPS driver’s route. You could even say they’re a perk of the job. Their large, lovable eyes and instant trust can win over even the harshest critic.
Dogs will go to great lengths for the humans they love, even going so far as to stand in the line of fire. Click the link below to learn about the K-9 who was awarded the Purple Heart award after saving his partner’s life during a shootout.
