Housemates Ask Neighbour If They Can Walk Their Dog And Receive Incredible Paw-Written Message
Jack McCrossan shared a picture of the letter he and his pals originally sent their neighbour, which explained they were four engineers who recently moved into the area.
They wrote: "The other day, we noticed a four-legged friend looking at us out the window when we arrived home from work.
"He or she looked like the good-est boy/girl there is.
"If you ever need someone to walk him/her, we will gladly do so. If you ever get bored (we know you never will, but we can dream) we are more than happy to look after him/her. If you want to come over and bring him/her to brighten our day, you are more than welcome. If you want to walk past our balcony windows so we can see him/her, please do."
Been saying we'd love a dog about the house but our landlord doesn't allow pets, so my housemate posted a letter to our neighbours asking if we could walk their dog every once and a while and the response was better than we could have ever hoped for pic.twitter.com/dcMOfPk5UH

Fearing that they'd come on a little too strong, the 'boys from number 23' said their landlord didn't allow pets and they'd all grown up with animals.
They added: "The adult life is a struggle without one."
It's a well-written, heartfelt letter, for sure - but what they received as a reply was even better.
The letter they got back, addressed to 'the boys', was stamped with a paw print on the back, and had been written by a sheprador called Stevie Ticks.
Stevie Ticks wrote: "What a treat it was to receive your letter!" She explained she was two years and four months old, and came from Cyprus originally but had been rescued by her humans Chris and Sarah.
She continued: "I am very friendly and full of beans. I love meeting new people and it would be great if we can be friends.
"I must warn you that the price of my friendship is 5 x ball throws a day and belly scratches whenever I demand them."
The letter continued: "Life just isn't full without a dog in it - right?! I'd love to hang whenever you fancy."
Stevie then added the number for her 'servant', Chris, so that the boys from number 23 could arrange a meet-up - which they did.
Update: The boys from 23 just met Stevie, looks like the start of a beautiful friendship (Give Stevie a follow on Instagram: stevieticks) #stevieticks pic.twitter.com/HkhDzzQcSG
