Jason Hardesty lives in the United States and works for a major UPS company that delivers packages all over the country and the world. The guy delivers packages all day long, but not too long ago he came up with a way to brighten up his workday. He started communicating with every dog he met at the homes of the customers to whom he delivered packages.
Later he also started taking pictures with each furry creature and this soon became a tradition. The cutest photos of Jason with his dogs captivated the Internet and his Instagram followers.
“It actually happened accidentally. You could say I came up with the idea when I randomly decided to pick up a dog to take a photo for fun, and then I just posted it on my Instagram. I didn’t expect to gain any attention from it, but I believe the picture got something like 100 likes, and back then, I thought that was a lot! Also, surprisingly I received a lot of positive comments! Of course, compared to the likes and comments on some of my pictures I get now, it seems like barely anything, but back then, it seemed like a lot and it motivated me to keep going! My motive to keep going became even stronger recently, given the days we are living in right now. I feel like what I’m doing means a lot to me because these photos bring a lot of joy to many people in these dark times.
Now that I think about it, I think I’ve been posting all of those pup pictures on my Instagram for over 3 years. Fun fact! I post a new picture with a new dog every Friday!” Jason told Bored Panda.
“I don’t think there are any challenges when it comes to taking pictures with dogs, but that’s just because most of my photos are taken with puppies, so it’s really hard to get into any kind of trouble with them. It’s actually rather easy to take photos with them!”
“The one story that comes to mind is that one time where I was trying to hold a small puppy… and, well, one thing led to another, and the little fella got a little bit scared, and unfortunately for me, he peed on me.”
