This Man Went Into A Freezing Lake To Rescue His Brother’s Dog

He braved the cold to save the dog!

Sliding along a layer of ice in nothing but your underwear doesn’t exactly sound like fun, but sometimes a dog lover’s got to do what a dog lover’s got to do. After his brother’s dog, Copper, fell through thin ice into a frozen lake, Colin did what any good brother would do—went in to save him.

Copper stayed calm up until Colin got close to him and he started barking. The poor thing just wanted to be saved! Unfortunately, as Colin got closer to the hole Copper had created in the ice, the ice started to crack and Colin went in the water right along with the pooch!

The two of them were able to swim and break the ice as they got closer to the edge of the water. But, that’s not before Copper started clinging to Colin for dear life. What was the only thing he could grab? Colin’s underwear…

This might not be exactly how either of these two wanted to spend their day, but at least they both got safely out of the water. And yes, Colin managed to keep his underwear on in the process.

All’s well that ends well, right? We’re just lucky the whole thing was caught on video.

The internet was there to cheer Colin on, too. Commenters wrote things such as, “3 cheers to the power of infinity for this dude!” Because, hey, this was no easy feat!

It’s a bit stressful to watch the first time because you’re not sure if the dog’s going to make it out OK, but once you know for certain, the video will definitely make you laugh.

If you’re having a hard time making it through the work week, just give this a play and remember: Things could always be worse. Because you could be in the freezing water with a dog tugging at your underwear.
