The Internet has a lot to offer when it comes to dog pictures of videos. From adorable ones to heartbreaking ones, social media has a lot of dog posts and stories to share. And we all know someone who loves taking selfies with dogs.
Like Jay, the UPS driver from New Orleans whose Instagram account is full of selfies with dogs.
Jason “Jay” Hardesty is a UPS driver for 7 years now. He had made friends with the fur babies he had encountered whenever he delivered packages.
The dog selfie thing started two years ago when he took a picture with a cute pup and posted it on social media. Apparently, the people loved it and his friends and other people who follow him asked for more pictures like that.
According to Jay, he doesn’t carry treats with him and the dogs are just really happy to see him. This is pertaining to the rumors that he is bribing the dogs to have a happy picture with him. He added,
“They come to the door and are happy and let you pet them and stuff.”
His selfies with dogs even have their own hashtag which is #pupsofjay. Jay’s adorable photos of dogs became viral when Jami Attenberg, an author who lives along the route where Hardesty do his deliveries, shared a tweet with the link of his Instagram account.
“I think I gained like 10,000 followers in 48 hours,” Jay said to BuzzFeed News. It is really obvious why he suddenly gained a lot of followers. With his infectious smile and the adorable expressions of the dogs, who won’t go “Awww” and double tap the pictures to give it a heart?
With this, people along his route always look at his Instagram account to see if their own dog made it to the #pupsofjay. According to him, customers love it because dogs get attention which they love.
What is more adorable is, he doesn’t just post the pups and refer them as “dogs” or any generic names. Jay gets to know them. His caption always includes the name of the canine babies.
Another thing is, there will be no jealousy and sniffing for other dog’s scent when he gets home because Jay doesn’t have his own dog. According to him, this is what makes it so much fun to play with other people’s dogs.
