These days, it seems that random acts of kindness are harder and harder to find. That makes this video of a New Zealand mailman even more heartwarming, since he had no idea that his sweet ritual was caught on video.

This mailman makes it a point to stop and give daily kisses and belly rubs to a German Shepherd named Kyza who is on his route. Michael Collins posted the video of his dog and the mailman on Facebook, saying,

“Everyday whether or not we have mail this mail man always stops to see my dog who is only 9 months old… this guy here always makes an effort to get off his bike to give him a hug and a pat!”
