The Rock In A Wet T-Shirt Holding 2 Puppies. You’re Welcome

This is one wet t-shirt contest we would want front row tickets to. All we can say is that those are some pretty lucky puppies… sigh!

The Rock (aka Dwayne Johnson) took an unplanned trip into his pool this long weekend when he acted as an impromptu doggy lifeguard.

And how did we come across this picture? Thankfully, The Rock Instagrammed a picture of him in a wet t-shirt with a French Bulldog puppy in each arm, along with a story of how this came to be. Apparently, the families two new puppies, Brutus (on the left) and Hobbs (on the right), needed to cool off on Labor Day (just look at that man… can you blame them?!?) and ran straight for the pool. Upon jumping in, Brutus realized he couldn’t swim and sunk to the bottom of the pool (no worries about Hobbs – he picked up the doggy paddle right away). The Rock immediately took off after them, jumping in the pool to pull both puppies out to dry land.

We’re happy to report that the only causality of this unfortunate incident was a cell phone – it was in The Rock’s pocket when he jumped in and could not be resuscitated. Both Brutus and Hobbs are doing fine, and cuddled up fast asleep on The Rock’s budging pecs (or so we imagine… another sigh).
