A few weeks ago, Mel Gracie and her boyfriend, Cal, went out on a grocery run. When they were about to head home, Gracie witnessed an act of kindness that was so touching, it made her stop.
According to Gracie, it was not raining when they went inside the mall. However, when they came out, it was already pouring hard. Outside of the shopping center was a dog tied to a post. So, when the rain suddenly poured, the security guard, who was usually at the front doors, stood with the pup and kept him dry.

The man did not seem to mind getting soaked while holding the umbrella over the smiling dog. Because of this lovely scene, Gracie could not help but grab her phone and take a snap. When Gracie and her boyfriend walked past the security guard, Cal commended him, saying he was such a good man for what he was doing. The guard replied and said that they never know how the dogs feel about the rain, which was a very simple yet very thoughtful reason.
Gracie decided to share the picture that she took to Twitter. She was hoping that the management of the grocery store would see the good deed of their employee. However, what happened next was something that Gracie never expected.
The Twitter post quickly went viral, and Gracie was able to get in touch with the owner of the dog. The fur parent confirmed that the pup was indeed a “very good boy.” Gracie got in contact with the security guard too.
The man explained that he knew the dog’s family. As a fellow dog owner, the security guard knew that he had to do something when the rain started pouring. He could not move a customer’s pooch, so he thought that the next best thing he could do was cover the pup with an umbrella. Luckily, a good man was there when the dog needed help in the middle of a storm.
