Two dogs from Virginia have had to apologise to the local postie after they broke into a USPS van and stole the worker's lunch.

Carol Jordan posted a photo of the two suspiciously guilty looking dogs to Facebook, along with a note left by the postie detailing what her dogs had eaten.

"I drove up to deliver a package and both of the dogs crawled in my truck," the note said.

"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."

The image struck a chord with other Facebook users, with more than 3000 people reacting to the post and more than 15,000 shares.

Ms Jordan later shared an update to the story, sharing an image of a Subway gift card signed by the dogs and given to the postie as an apology.

"Sorry we ate your lunch, thank you for sharing," the note said.

"Our humans said thank you for leaving a note. We didn't like the note, we got in trouble."
