I remember having an English Bulldog in my dream. We were in a backyard with a pool and someone threw him in.
He started to drown because he was so chubby but after a several seconds he started to wiggle his front and hind legs and started to swim. Someone in the pool pushed him towards the edge and he came back to ground.
