Jason Hardesty is a self-proclaimed "easily entertained UPS driver" with a collection of furry friends. Since starting a new route in New Orleans two years ago, Jason has had the chance to meet with many adorable dogs — and get some quality photo ops out of their interactions. His heart-melting canine snaps continue to grow in popularity, resulting in over 36,000 followers on his Instagram account.
Bestselling author Jami Attenberg helped catapult Jason to his now-viral fame, after she tweeted about his incredible photo series. "I have extremely important news and it is this: my sweet UPS guy has a hashtag of all the dogs in the neighborhood," she wrote, with a link to Jason's designated hashtag. "Also just want to add he is very good at his job! Top notch guy!" Jason told BuzzFeed News that Jami's tweet brought him "like 10,000 followers in 48 hours."
Jason doesn't have a dog of his own, so playing around with these pups brings him (and the dogs' owners) a lot of happiness. "
"They love the fact that their dog loves me and I love them," he told BuzzFeed.
