Senior Dog Struggles On Stairs To Greet Mailman Every Day, So He Builds Furry Friend A Ramp

Jeff Kramer, a mailman for the USPS in Boulder, Colorado, did something amazing for a 14-year-old dog named Tashi, whom he met while delivering mail on his route.

Tashi always greets Kramer when he comes to deliver the family’s mail, but Kramer noticed that the senior dog was having a hard time getting up and down the stairs. That’s when he came up with a great idea.

Kramer visited the house on his day off and built Tashi a dog ramp to help him get up and down the stairs!

“Hopefully he’ll live a little longer. He’s still happy. That’s what we want. We want a happy animal,” Kramer said. “Yeah, a mailman who likes dogs. Go figure.”

What an amazing gesture from Kramer! He went above and beyond to help this family and their beloved furbaby! We need more people in this world like Kramer. He definitely restored my faith in humanity!
