Remember those Ryan Gosling memes, the ones where pictures of the swoonworthy actor were captioned with gentle affirmations like, “Hey girl, I’d always use a bookmark and never dog-ear your pages?” Get ready to use the Impact font, because Gosling has done something that should definitely be commemorated in meme form. “Hey girl,” this one would say, “a dog is safe tonight because I stopped my car and rescued him.”
Gosling and his wife Eva Mendez were driving to get takeout from a Palm Springs, California, restaurant when he saw the dog dart away from his owner and run toward a busy road. According to Entertainment Tonight, the actor pulled over, caught the dog and carried him back to his owner. He then calmly walked back to his car and headed to dinner — although we wouldn’t be surprised to learn that he also stopped to help an elderly woman carry her groceries before climbing a tree to rescue a frightened kitten.
