While you were shoving your 4th hotdog into your mouth and quietly slipping into a food coma, everybody's favorite soft hard man, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, spent his Labor Day melting hearts and saving tiny furry lives like it ain't no thing.

The Rock posted on his Facebook page that he decided to extend his family by adopting two adorable French Bulldog pups, but nobody gave the bat-eared balls of 'awwwww' the memo that they are a bit too roly poly to swim just yet, Johnson explained that:

"We just decided to add to 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."

Although The Rock sacrificed his cell phone in the spur of the moment rescue mission, Brutus (who, according to my embarrassingly dodgy left and right skills, is the brown pup) survived his ordeal unscathed and lived on to make us squee over the internet for many years to come.
