A man in New Zealand recently posted footage of the daily routine he says his dog shares with their mail carrier, and the adorable footage has been viewed millions of times in less than a week.

Michael Collins of Tauranga, New Zealand said his mail man stops by their yard every day to spend a minute or two with his 9-month-old dog, even if they don’t have mail that day.

While dogs may have a bit of a reputation for causing problems for mail carriers, Collins said his mailman doesn’t seem intimidated.

“He always gets over looked as a dangerous or unapproachable dog, Maybe cause he’s big i am not sure” Collins writes. “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!”

Michael said he wasn’t sure who to tag on Facebook to spread the footage, but he said he hopes his mail man sees the video and his expression of gratitude: “…thanks man keep up the good job and you’ve definitely got a friend waiting for ya!!”
