If you needed a Monday pick-me-up, a Facebook page that has recently grown gives UPS drivers a chance to share photos of the dogs they meet on their routes.

The page, called "UPS DOGS," has over 500,000 likes on Facebook with more than 600,000 followers. 

It's description says, "UPS Drivers deliver packages all day long. During that time many dogs are met, good and bad. If there is time during the day snap a shot and send it in. If you have a driver that delivers everyday get a pick and send a short description including name and location."

According to WSAZ, UPS DOGS was started by a West Virginia UPS driver in 2013 and now features drivers from across the world.

"I know people who buy a couple of boxes [of dog treats] a week," Sean McCarren told TODAY, according to WSAZ. "As soon as you deliver to a stop, especially in rural areas, (the dogs) start popping up in your truck. They become a part of your family, kinda. They’re expecting you. The worst is when you run out of treats, next time, they get a double treat!"
