The Rock saved one of his adorable new puppies from drowning

How does he manage to be so continuously lovable?

Take a moment and try to imagine how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson spent his Labor Day weekend. Was he doing something heroic, dreamy, or agonizingly heartwarming?

Yes. Yes to all three of those things.

Thanks to a recent Instagram post, we now know that The Rock not only adopted two adorable puppies this weekend, but he also wound up rescuing one of them from drowning—by jumping, fully clothed, into a pool after the puppy decided to go for an impromptu swim and sank to the bottom.

So, now we have this photo of The Rock smiling widely in a wet t-shirt while holding a puppy in each hand. You’re welcome, Internet.
