Wait til you see what this guy did to a prairie dog floating in a pool

PHOENIX, Ariz. — A Phoenix pool repairman spotted a small prairie dog floating in a backyard pool Tuesday, so he pulled him out — and started giving the little guy CPR.

“He looked like he needed help, and I figured he hadn’t been in there for very long,” Rick Gruber said. “I figured I could try to pull him out and try to see if I could bring him back to life because there was still a chance he hadn’t been in there for maybe a minute.”


Rick Gruber and the prairie dog he rescued.

Video shows Gruber put the prairie dog over a piece of PVC pipe and started gently squeezing its sides to get it to spit out the water it had swallowed.

Then after a few minutes, the little rodent let out a hiccup and started to breath.

Gruber stayed with him for about an hour until it was up and moving and watched as the critter scurried back to the desert.
