Morrisons security guard praised for protecting dog with umbrella in downpour
A supermarket security guard has been praised for sheltering a dog from a rain downpour with an umbrella. The man was snapped outside Morrisons in Giffnock on Sunday morning, as heavy rain hit much of Scotland, the Daily Record reports. As the rain pelts down, the kindly security guard is photographed protecting the golden retriever from the downpour with a large umbrella.
Mel Gracie tweeted the sweet picture and said: “Shout out to this @Morrisons security man keeping this good boy dry. He said ‘well you never know how dogs feel about the rain’
