We were smiling.
We were laughing.
We were enjoying (arguably) the greatest video to every grace Twitter.
Until we weren't.
It was all fun and games until the "I-10 Dog" took, what looked like, its final leap.
Its final leap into oncoming traffic.
Now, if you missed this story, it all went down on the 10 Freeway in Ontario on March 17.
Traffic had actually come to a virtual halt in an attempt to save this little black dog that was taking a little after-lunch jog and juke in the slow lane.
Cars pulled over and people exited their vehicles in an attempt to wrangle this wild pooch.
There was just one problem.
Nobody knew that this dog had moves like Barry Sanders.
She dodged, ducked, dipped, dived, and dodged around every pair of grasping hands.
Now, this is where the situation became problematic for the dog.
She thought this was all a big, fun game.
The people, though, knew that it was a matter of safety.
They knew that this wild game of tag could easily turn very, very bad if the dog failed to dodge, duck, dip, dive, or dodge one of the vehicles that weren't as concerned about her safety.
And, that's exactly what people thought happened when the dog cleared that center divider and the video ended so abruptly.
Luckily, and surprisingly, the story has a happier ending than we all feared it did.
Meet Maya. And meet Ruben, the man captured this heart-stopping video.
As you can see, the video didn't end like we all, including Ruben, figured it did.
And since we were wondering how this terrifying video could end with such a big smile, we reached out to Ruben and talked to him about it all.
