For whatever reason, Ryan posed alongside his Doberman pinscher. Ryan wore nothing but a speedo as he lounged next to his canine companion.
The mag posted a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot and for some reason they let Ryan talk, even though speaking and sounding intelligent are the opposite of things that Ryan is good at.
For starters, Ryan described the process of how he came to own his dog. Very riveting stuff, you guys.
“It’s a dog that I’ve always wanted,” Ryan revealed, “I wanted him as one of my own and I went online to look at breeders and found one not too far away and I went and picked him up and then I took him home and he sat in my lap.”
And that, my friends, is how you buy a dog. Not sure what ANY of it has to do with Ryan Lochte being sexy, but whatever.
He also named the dog Carter after the rapper Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter.
But the best part about the dog is that he’s used to get chicks.
“I’ve taken him to the dog park and he’s a good wing man, and girls come up to me, and they are like, ‘where’s Carter?’ He’s so good looking and then I start talking to the girls.”
The girls probably also recognize him from oh I don’t know, THE OLYMPICS, but we’ll let Ryan believe his dog is why he’s getting laid.
