Holly Monson traveled recently with her family to Lake Saguaro, Arizona. It was a fine sweet day until something hilarious scary happened.
“Well it was a nice lake day until my dog nearly drowned my sister,” Holly tweeted alongside pictures of her dog and sister making a scene worthy of a comedy action film.
“His name is Sam and he will be 2 years old in September,” Holly told Bored Panda. “We decided to take him to the lake with us that day, and since he’s only gone swimming a few times and it was a larger body of water we brought along his doggie life jacket just to be safe!”
“My dad threw his ball into the water for him to get, which he did until he spotted my sister and decided to swim over to her instead,” she continued. “I don’t know if he was trying to save her or save himself, but that’s when he put my sister under for a good five seconds before my dad came to the rescue!” They got Sam back onto their boat, returned him his ball, and all was good. “My sister Ariana is also perfectly fine; just a few scratches.”
According to Holly, this was Sam’s first swim of the day, so he could have been a little anxious. “We played fetch with him again in the shallows so he could get used to it and after that he was completely comfortable.” The post quickly went viral with 146k retweets and more than 516k likes as of today. Check out the hilarious post below.
