1. Today, August 26th is National Dog Day, and to celebrate social media is flooded with adorable doggie selfies, some even including their human companions. You would have to look hard to find any as cute as UPS driver Jason Hardesty who has a serious case of puppy love. The 30 year old from New Orleans has won over fans for posting photos of dogs along his delivery route on his Instagram page using the hashtag #pupsofjay. Hardesty says he first took photos of some pooches when he got assigned a new route about two years ago. He just saw a really cute dog and asked a customer if I can take a picture of their dog. Hardesty, who's been driving for UPS for seven years, says he does this just for the pure joy of it. Do you think this is a sweet idea to do?
Very much so!
Hey, what about us cats? We're cute too!
So cute, and he is too!
