“Every time I see a dog, I definitely get more excited than I used to,” Hardesty told ABC News.

He started taking pictures with the pups about two years ago.

“I picked up a dog, just goofing around on a Friday,” he said. “I took a photo with him, posted it on my Instagram and he got me more likes than I’ve ever seen. So every Friday, I try to keep up with that.”

He has more than 90,000 followers and has become somewhat of a celebrity to those on his route.

“Owners are pretty cool when I ask to take a photo with their dogs,” Hardesty said. “Because they’re like, ‘You’re going to make my dog famous.’”
