Work can suck at times, but if there’s one thing which can make it better, it’s definitely cuddling dogs. Well, this dog-loving UPS driver cuddles every dog along his route and we couldn’t be happier about it…

Some have cute office dogs, some work from home and have a canine companion to keep them company, some people have working dogs and, of course, some are just lucky enough to work with animals on a daily basis.
But what if you don’t have a dog of your own, don’t have an office and only work with humans, just like this UPS driver (if you’re from the UK like me, that basically means a delivery driver) Jason?
Jason came up with a magical way to get his canine fix!
Who says you can’t brighten up your day with some four-legged cuddle time if you’re a UPS driver?
Hard-working Jason Hardesty cuddles and takes photos with all the friendly dogs on his route and shares pictures of his new friends on Instagram.
And it seems that the internet just can’t get enough - using the hashtag #PupsofJay, he’s now accidentally built up over 40k followers
But it was all down to Jason’s newly assigned route…
Speaking to Insider, Jason explained: "My old route that I was on, the dogs in that area weren't really too friendly. The would always want to be guard dogs, or aggressive dogs because it was more of a family area."
"But when they moved me to a certain part of town which has not as many families, the dogs are a lot nicer."
Once Jason’s route was changed up, the sweet-natured dogs inspired Jason to start his now-viral hashtag.
"I realized they would let you pick them up and pet them," he said. "So I guess maybe a few years ago I started throwing up a dog on it every week. Just a cute pup."
The pawfect end to the week!
Jason tries to post every Friday just as everyone is leaving work, in order to cheer everyone up ready for the weekend. What a lovely idea, hey?!
Now, we know you’re probably itching to see some of these cute photos, so we’ll stop waffling and let you get on with it - warning, they're seriously adorable!
