What did you do last weekend? Because while we were contemplating our third slice, Ryan Gosling was wandering the streets of Palm Springs saving innocent puppies.

The star was reportedly on his way to grab take-out from Rick's Desert Grill (as ya do), when he and Eva Mendes almost ran over a dog that had wandered onto the highway—presumably after smelling Ryan's intoxicating pheromones and being driven to the very brink of insanity.

Naturally, Ryan (who's a noted dog lover (opens in new tab)) pulled over to rescue the confused little guy, and promptly handed him back to his owner.

All in all a happy ending for everyone! Except for the dog, of course, whose obvious plans to upgrade his human were cruelly thwarted. Poor thing just wanted Ryan to do this to him, sigh:
