Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Saves Puppies

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson spent his Labor Day channeling his inner San Andreas hero - saving a puppy.

The action star adopted two new puppies over the weekend and decided to take them out to the pool for some Labor Day fun. Well, one little guy had fun, the other sunk like ... well ... a rock.

Fear not. Action hero Dwayne Johnson was still on the scene to throw his cell phone aside, dive in the pool, and apply some of that acting training in real time. Brutus is alive and well, thanks to ole Mr. Johnson. The only thing missing is J.R.'s commentary - "He's drownin'! He's drownin'! It's a slobberknocker! Get in there Rock!"


Here's a fun Labor Day weekend story... We just decided to add two new members to our Johnson family. Baby French Bulldogs. In my right hand is BRUTUS and in my left hand is HOBBS. 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. HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the 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 spiriting to save your puppies life, before you dive in, try and throw your cel phone to safety. Don't keep it in your pocket... like I did. #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCelPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay

Moral of the story - don't throw puppies in the pool unless you're a human/silverback crossover ready to save them. And maybe Black Adam isn't all that bad, after all.
