You know, sometimes it might seem like we here at Playboy love Dwayne “The Rock Eternal” Johnson a little too much. Maybe we get a little too effusive, a little too quick to lift the man up to God Among Men status. You might feel that way, and you might be right…if it weren’t for the fact that The Rock keeps doing amazing things.
Over Labor Day weekend, the Furious 7 star and lip sync champion brought home a couple of new French Bulldog puppies and, being a responsible dog owner, took them outside to start housebreaking them. The puppies, being creatures naturally pre-disposed to enthusiastic exploration, decided to make a break for the pool, which would’ve been fine if both of them could swim.
As one of his new Rocklets sank in the water, Johnson dove in and hauled the puppy to safety. Then, generous man that he is, he decided to share the story with us all.
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
