Sometimes, getting through the work day is hard. It’s a long slog with little or no thanks, just to make your way to that sweet paycheck at the end of the month.

But not so for UPS drivers in the US it seems. Despite the longstanding assumption that posties and canines do not see eye-to-eye, the company’s drivers and the dogs they meet en route have struck up a series of friendships - and they’re all documented on the sweetest Facebook page you’re ever likely to see.

You know what’s coming don’t you? BRING ON THE DOG PHOTOS.

Oh god it’s too much.

Sometimes it’s not even just dogs.

Sometimes there’s lots of dogs.

The page was started five years ago by UPS worker Sean McCarren for him and fellow workers to share pictures of the friendly hounds that brightened up their working day. He now receives submissions from a host of fellow employees, moderating them and posting up the best ones.

Inevitably, occasionally there are sad times:

While the page is not affiliated officially with UPS, the company supports the contents of the group.

A spokesman said: “Yes, we are aware of that site. It’s a good example of the relationships our employees build with their customers, two- or four-legged!”
