In a now viral tweet with over 455K likes and 126 retweets, Holly shared, “Well it was a nice lake day until my dog nearly drowned my sister.”
As Holly and her family were enjoying the lake, Holly’s dog same hilariously panicked in the water… and Holly’s sister was the victim.
“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.
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!” Holly shared with Bored Panda.
“His name is Sam and he will be 2 years old in September. 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!” Holly shared.
The family successfully managed to get Sam and Holly’s sister, Ariana, back onto their boat and returned Sam’s ball to him. Ariana was left unscathed, with only a few scratches from the ordeal.
We are glad everyone is safe and has a funny story to tell for years to come!
