Dwayne Johnson saved the lives of his two adorable pups over the weekend after a near drowning incident.
The actor shared the story on Instagram, revealing that after taking home the new members of the family, french bulldogs Brutus and Hobbs took a mad dash to the deep end of the pool. “HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the pool,” Johnson wrote. “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.”
Johnson went on to explain that both pups were ok, however he learned a few lessons. “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.”
Round of applause for the real life hero, DJ.
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

Ava DuVernay went viral on Monday night after she delivered one heck of a speech during the NAACP Image Awards.
The female director was named Entertainer of the Year and during her acceptance speech, took a moment to speak about the Black community using our voices to create change.
“This is our time,” DuVernay said while talking about Black power players such as Shonda Rhimes and Kenya Barris. “We can say we were here when all this gorgeous art was happening, and that we supported it — that we lifted each other up, that we did as Dr. King said we would do: Live the dream. We’re the dream.”
