HOBBS is a natural swimmer, got those natural swimmin’ instincts. But BRUTUS, The Rock explains, unfortunately has the instincts of a brick. (The Rock knows you thought he would say “rock,” but he wrote “brick” multiple times when he told this story on Instagram, so it’s “brick,” okay?)
Anyway, HOBBS is doggy-paddling along, and down to the bottom goes BRUTUS. So into the water goes a fully-clothed The Rock, who is like “Oh, shit. That dog can’t swim. He’s like a damn brick,” and he scoops BRUTUS up from the pool floor. He emerges triumphantly, lifts both doggies to the sky, and strikes a charming hero pose for social media. [Sound of cartoon smile sparkling in sun.]
Seriously, this looks too good to be real. It will soon end up on one of those shitty "You won't believe these aren't photoshopped" picture top 10 articles on your favorite site that you hate but inexplicably keep clicking on.

Everyone was okay on this day of labors. Except for Dwayne Johnson’s phone, which was sadly killed during the rescue.
R.I.P. Dwayne Johnson’s phone (2015?-2015). At least he had a backup in case he had to Instagram any heroic rescues (always a possibility for The Rock).
Here is the moral of this episode of Ballers, according to Dwayne Johnson:
“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.”
