Bull and Bear Jordan are two naughty mastiff-Labrador dogs who lives in Smithfield, Virginia.
Carol Jordan, who owns a five-acre farm in Isle of Wight, Virginia, found a handwritten note at his mailbox from the woman who delivers her family’s mail.
“Our immediate thought was, ‘What did the boys do now?'” she told CBS News.
Her 6-year-old dogs Bear and Bull were in question. She and her husband rescued them from a high kill shelter in North Carolina as puppies.
The note which she received was about the dogs and what they had done.
It reads: “Hey! I drove up to deliver a package and both of the dogs crawled in my truck. They got into my lunch and ate an egg and some carrots and pumpkin seeds. I don’t know if that will upset their tummies, just FYI!”
“Upon reading it, we realized the note was left because she was concerned” rather than angry, Jordan recalls.
“We would never have known,” she continues. “They always look guilty of something!”
The dogs had even left the evidence of the mischief they did. There were two small carrots in the grass next to the driveway, where the dogs had spit out the vegetables.
Though the letter was not a complain, concern by the person for the dogs. But the owner decided to teach the dogs a lesson and decided to “shame them on Facebook.”
Jordan clicked the picture of dogs looking guilty and created a photo composite with the image of the mail carrier’s note. The post reads, “Wall of shame #weoweyoulunch.”
The post quickly went viral.
She told CBS News: “We’ve heard from people in Denmark, Australia and New Zealand that have seen the post,”
“Most people thank us for making them laugh. A lot of folks have made comments along the lines of ‘that’s like my dog’ or they tag someone whose dog would act like that.”
Later, Jordan purchased a $20 Subway gift card and left it at the post office for their carrier, along with a handwritten note of apology from dog’s side.
“Sorry, we ate your lunch,” read the note. “Thank you for sharing… P.S. Our humans said thank you for leaving a note. We didn’t like the note, we got in trouble.”
She posted the dog’s apology to Facebook with a caption that read, “We are blown away by all the shares and likes of our two silly dogs. Here is an update to their shameful act of stealing the mail carrier’s lunch. Hope you enjoy your gift card Mary – and sorry!”
