“Wait, isn’t this how it’s supposed to be played?”

This thought must’ve been ruining rent-free around this dog’s head when he made a rather silly gesture to one of their favorite people.

Dog owners will always have a story or two to tell when it comes to their dogs and delivery staff. These encounters happen so often that some of these logistics staff members even keep treats inside their trucks.

Once your dog howls at the window, you know you’re getting a package. It’s just that this delivery man didn’t know that his delivery time also meant play time.

The hilarious encounter was caught on a home security system.

A delivery man walks up to Megan Sand’s porch in Rogers, Minnesota to drop off a package. Tailing right behind him is a playful Labrador named Nixon.

Nixon, who seemed to be elated to see a friendly face, catches up with the delivery man with his tail wagging like there’s no tomorrow.

He even gave Nixon a head scratch that every good boy deserves before completing his delivery.

But when the delivery man turned, a comedy movie ensues.

He thought he could just leave the package and move on to the next house, but Nixon had other plans. The eight-year-old Labrador ran after his friend, intending to coax him into a game of fetch.

The man looks over his shoulder, maybe asking the dog to stay. But eventually, he stops his jog when he saw what Nixon has on his mouth.

Nixon was carrying the package he just delivered.

The baffled delivery man stopped and tried to grab Nixon. But instead of retrieving the package, he just made Nixon think that they were actually playing.

As mischievous as Nixon can get, at the end of the day, it’s just him being playful. Maybe it was his way of showing how much he loves hanging out with the people who make logistics possible.

Nixon loves people.

Sand shared with the Daily Mail that her dog becomes very excited when someone comes to their house.

‘Nixon will run and hop into their truck, walk in the back with them, then follow them to our front door and then back to their truck,’ Sand said, as quoted by Daily Mail.

According to CBS, Nixon is very popular with the delivery guys who frequent their area. Whenever he sees a parked delivery truck on their street, Nixon hops at the back and walks with the delivery drivers to the front door.

It was Nixon’s first time to take a package, however.

“I’ve never seen that, and it just made me laugh. I just kind of wanted to share that laughter with everyone and hopefully someone, or hopefully a lot of people found it funny and just made their day. And I’m sure it made the FedEx driver’s day,” she said to CBS. “I hope he comes back so I can ask him.

We’re pretty sure he’ll come back. After all, who wouldn’t want to hang out with this adorable and playful furball that acts like a little puppy?

Watch how this man made and failed a delivery because of fetch.
