Many dog owners would do anything for their pets, but some people take things much farther than others. One viral video is proof that sometimes people prioritize a pup’s happiness even over their own.

A woman named Alilee Shalom Galilee was at Agdao Market in Davao City, the Philippines. It suddenly started raining, and many shoppers at the outdoor market found themselves in nasty weather.

But then one elderly man and his dog caught Galilee’s attention.

The canine companion was clearly well taken care of and already living the high life, getting a ride in the basket of the man’s bicycle.

But his owner was determined to protect him from the inclement weather. He wrapped a plastic bag around the dog’s body like a raincoat.

And if that wasn’t enough, he also decided to protect the dog’s head, buying him a straw hat.

The man put together an effective makeshift rain ensemble for his friend. He didn’t buy an umbrella or raincoat for himself—content that his dog was protected, the two headed home on his bike.

Galilee recorded the adorable scene, and shared it on Facebook … where it’s been spread around the world as a viral hit.

The video has been viewed 3.5 million times on Facebook.

The man has not been identified, so he may be unaware he and his dog are viral stars. But clearly the doggo-loving Internet identified with the elderly stranger looking out for his dog.

Either that, or they’re just trying to steal that dog’s look.
