For decades, students across the country have offered up the classic excuse, “Dog ate my homework.” But now, a letter carrier in Smithfield, Virginia is saying, “Dogs ate my lunch.” And the story that unfolded has amused thousands of people on social media.

In June, Carol Jordan, who owns a five-acre farm in Isle of Wight, Virginia, stopped at her mailbox and discovered a handwritten note there from the woman who delivers her family’s mail.

“Our immediate thought was, ‘What did the boys do now?'” she told CBS News.

“The boys” in question are Bear and Bull, Jordan’s 6-year-old black Labrador/mastiffs, which she and her husband rescued from a high kill shelter in North Carolina as puppies.

The article goes on to state the following:

In this instance, however, it turns out the boys actually weren’t in trouble. On the contrary, the neighborhood’s friendly letter carrier actually left the family a note out of concern for the dogs’ well-being.

It read: “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!”

The report continues:

Though the letter carrier seemingly wasn’t holding a grudge, the dogs had undeniably misbehaved. So their owners decided to “shame them on Facebook.” Jordan took a picture of the pair looking guilty and created a photo composite with the image of the mail carrier’s note. The post — complete with a caption that read, “Wall of shame #weoweyoulunch” — quickly went viral.

The note, accompanied by a subway gift card, read: “Sorry we ate your lunch. 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.”

It was signed “Bull and Bear Jordan.”
