Ponder

What if someone inverted the order of the photos, and what they actually depict is cruel owners who abandoned their dog by tossing it out into the water?

In that case, the 'rescuer' was already all wet and was carrying a wet dog down to the river.

Not really, since in last photo (which would be first in sequence in the inverted order) he and the dog are both already submerged in the water.
