Waiting in the pouring rain is not pleasant for anyone. Not even for a dog. And this man understood it well.
In pity for a dog left tied to a pole in the rain while his master was quietly shopping, a security guard from a store in Giffnock, UK approached him and sheltered him under an umbrella.
A good action that moved the canvas
The man in question, Ethan Dearman, works at the British supermarket Morrisons, so he shared his umbrella with the poor, soaked Golden Retriever . A totally altruistic act which could have gone unnoticed if it had not been filmed and posted on Twitter accompanied by the following legend: “Ovation to this man of security @Morrisons who kept this good boy dry”. Adding: “You never know how dogs feel about the rain”. And very quickly, his tweet was buzzing, collecting almost 150,000 likes and more than 20,000 shares.

The agent delivers an important detail
Identified, Ethan Dearman replied that he never thought that his good action would go viral even though he was well aware at the time that by sheltering the dog under his umbrella, he made passers-by smile. He also took the opportunity to answer all those who wondered why the dog was tied outside in the rain: “It was not raining when it was tied up there and since I cannot move the dog from another, I thought using an umbrella would be a good compromise. “
Many internet users have also pointed out that the Morrisons are lucky to have such an employee and the store seems to be aware of this since it itself retweeted the photo on its page explaining: “The week will be wet, so we ordered nine thousand Morrisons umbrellas to keep our customers – and their dogs – dry. It’s good to see that this is already happening in our Giffnock store. “
