Mailman Takes Best Selfie with Dogs and Defies Stereotypes

Doniel Kidd and dogs

Who says mailmen and dogs can't be best friends?

As a UPS driver, Doniel Kidd delivers mail, but he also defies stereotypes by befriending local dogs ... and even taking selfies with them.

Louisiana resident Staci Burns said that Doniel never misses a chance to take selfies with her dogs, even lying down on the pavement to get them all into the picture.

Staci posted a video of Doniel and her dogs on Facebook with the comment: "When you have the best UPS man on the planet..."

The video has since gone viral.

Though all three dogs in the video seem very excited to see Doniel, wriggling around in excitement as he sets up the shot, one seems even more excited to see him than the rest. The red Australian Shepherd named Reba actually begins to climb into his lap, and Staci said it is for good reason.

Apparently Reba went through an adventurous phase where she liked to wander off, and on one occasion Doniel noticed her and gave her a ride back home. They have been best friends ever since. In fact, Reba will often jump into the passenger seat of the UPS van when Doniel arrives.

It is a touching reminder that stereotypes don't hold much weight, and friendships cross all barriers -- even when it comes to dogs and mailmen.
