Captured on video


If you're a mailman, there's a pretty predictable list of things that can make you dread the day ahead: inclement weather, a stack of heavy packages, and probably most common, unfriendly dogs along the route. Well, Michael Collins of New Zealand happens to have a dog and he's a pretty big fellow.


But his dog's interaction with the mailman turned out quite differently than that. Try and watch this without smiling.



Michael posted the video on Facebook and wrote, "Just want to share something cool! Everyday whether or not we have mail this mail man always stops to see my dog who is only 9 months old. He always gets over looked as a dangerous or unapproachable dog, Maybe cause he's big i am not sure. He doesn't bark at them or growl (Maybe the odd couple times he barks at people but which dog doesn't) But this guy here always makes an effort to get off his bike to give him a hug and a pat! I'm not sure who to tag on Facebook for him to see this! But thanks man keep up the good job and you've definitely got a friend waiting for ya!!"


You see, folks? When dogs and mailmen can get along this well, there's certainly hope for the rest of us! ;-)
