We saw the movie San Andreas this weekend, but that’s not the only reason why one of my favorite actors, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is a hero. He brought home two new Frenchies, Brutus and Hobbs, this weekend, and when they fell into the pool, only Hobbs knew how to swim. Brutus sank like a stone, and Mr. Johnson rescued him.
Here’s how he describes it on his Instagram page:
“[I] bring them home and immediately take them outside so they can start learning how to ‘handle their business and potty like big boys. I set them both down and they both take off in a full sprint and fall right into the deep end of our pool.
I take off into a full sprint, fully clothed, dive in the pool, swim to the bottom, rescue my brick, I mean BRUTUS and bring him back to the edge of the pool. He was a little delirious…took a moment, threw up all the water he swallowed and looked up at me as if to say, ‘Thank God you didn’t have to give me mouth to mouth!’ and then ran off to play with his brother.
A few lessons I’ve learned today.. A) Not all puppies have the instinct to doggie paddle. B) Some puppies (like BRUTUS) will be so in shock by experiencing water they will sink extremely fast so react quick. C) While sprinting to save your puppies life, before you dive in, try and throw your cell phone to safety. Don’t keep it in your pocket… like I did. #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCellPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay.
Don’t feel too bad about the phone, Mr. Johnson. I, too, have jumped in a pool with a phone in my pocket, and it wasn’t even an emergency!
We’re glad everything turned out all right. And congratulations to the Johnson family on their two new additions!
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
