    Harry Styles Looking After A Stranger’s Dog Proves He’s As Pure As You Think He Is

    Honestly, both Harry and this puppy are the goodest of boys!

    On Monday, Twitter user @yusufyuie asked people for the most awkward or interesting celebrity interaction they had ever had. And while there were a lot of great answers, there was one that really stood out as completely pure and amazing...

    What’s ya most awkward or interesting celebrity interaction you have had? Lol I have so many 😂

    ...the one submitted by Rory Carroll, a correspondent for Reuters, who had Harry Styles watch his dog, Oscar, while he ran in to grab his takeout from a restaurant in LA's Franklin Village:

    @yusufyuie I was outside a restaurant in Hollywood trying to pick up my take out order but couldn’t go in because I was with my puppy. Harry Styles saw my predicament, tapped me on the shoulder and said he could watch Oscar while I went in. What a guy

    And, of course, people absolutely loved this story:

    @rorydcarroll @hsdaily @yusufyuie the most harry thing to do

    @rorydcarroll @yusufyuie Dude. How long did u just have this photo in your camera roll, just keeping it to yourself? Amazinnnng

    @rorydcarroll @yusufyuie The fact he let you take a pic of him is so cute lmao.

    And, I've got to admit, I am just as obsessed with this interaction as everybody else. So I reached out to Rory, who told me exactly what went down.

    According to Rory, he was very protective of his then 6-month-old puppy, Oscar, and was ready to turn down Harry's offer to watch him, saying:

    I wouldn’t have let a stranger watch him and was prepared to say no when I first heard this English accent ask me if I needed help. When I saw it was Harry Styles I agreed since he seems like a decent, trustworthy guy.

    Oh, and in case you were wondering, Rory said that Harry is a GREAT dog sitter:

    I could see Harry and Oscar through the windows of the restaurant while I waited inside and Harry was great, never looked at his phone and kept his focus on Oscar.

    Of course, I needed to know about how he got the OK to take a photo of Harry with Oscar. According to Rory, Harry was pretty chill with it, saying:

    When I went back outside I realized no one would believe me if I didn’t have a photo so I sheepishly asked for one and he was willing, which was cool. We shook hands, Harry went into the restaurant and that was that.

    And, I mean, who wouldn't want to take a photo with this goodest of boys!!!

    Also, Rory said he and Oscar are grateful for all the heartwarming responses to the story.

    So there you have it: Harry Styles, international pop singer, sex symbol, all-around nice guy, and also a good dog sitter!
