Many people were delighted when a picture of a security officer at the Morrisons store in Scotland shielded a puppy from the rain with his umbrella went viral on Twitter. The security guy is from Scotland and works for Morrisons.
Mel Gracie, a 25-year-old tattoo artist from Glasgow, happened to witness this beautiful incident and managed to get a photo of it before it was gone. Afterward, she posted it on Twitter with the caption: “Shout out to this @Morrisons security officer for keeping this nice child dry.” ‘Well, you never know how dogs react to the weather,’ he said.
As a result of the photo’s widespread distribution on social media, the security guard was swiftly recognized as Ethan Dearman. It came as no surprise when the internet flooded him with praise and gratitude for his thoughtful and beautiful move. He deserved it. Many individuals referred to him as a “hero” and a “legend” in their words.
Speaking with Insider, Dearman said that he was going about his business when he came upon a lone golden retriever waiting for his owner outside the store, which he described as “amazing.” He grabbed one of the store’s spare umbrellas as soon as it began pouring to protect himself from the torrential deluge that followed.
In addition, Dearman said, “I try to keep an eye out for dogs.” He said that this wasn’t the first time he’d done anything like this for a dog. He had been assisting a husky in staying out of the rain the day before the viral event.
David Cherr, the dog’s owner, was able to see the photograph thanks to the power of the internet. He subsequently thanked Ethan for his chivalry in a tweet that he shared on Twitter.
Freddie was saved from the rain by security guard @dearmanethan, who placed an umbrella over him as it began to rain! Thank you very much! Our Freddie, my brother Stuart and I all appreciate how kind he is towards us all. “Look at this picture of Freddie when he was a puppy!”
Freddie, our family’s dog, has gone viral when a compassionate security guard put his umbrella up for him when it began pouring at the Morrisons near my parents’ home,” David said in another tweet. Excellent sense of belonging in the community. People who are looking out for one another. His treatment of my father and brother is usually positive; it’s good to hear positive things about him.”
The dog and Ethan’s actions captured the attention of the whole internet. They even began requesting that Ethan be given a raise and other forms of appreciation.
Several users commented on the post, saying, “@Morrisons you need to recognize this boy and make him know of how much the world loves him.”
A number of other people reacted positively to the lovely shot, with one commenting that Dearman was “a hero.”
