The elderly man was getting ready to leave the market when it started to rain.
On the front of his bike was a basket, and inside sat the dog. They were about to leave the market before the unthinkable happened. It started to rain. After the rain had started he made sure his beloved friend was covered. Grabbing a plastic bag, he tied it around the dog, covering him almost completely. Then, he grabbed a small hat and placed it on the dog’s head, attaching the strap to his bike. The dog was covered and no longer getting wet.
