Ryan Lochte’s dog, Carter, is 9-years old. Carter celebrates his birthday every year on October 23rd. Ryan Lochte has celebrated Carter’s 8th birthday every year on October 23rd for the last three years.
For a moment, I thought this might be a photoshop or a joke, but Lochte deleted the tweet and replaced it with one rightly (probably) saying the dog was now 9. Here are the previous instances of Carter celebrating his 8th birthday.
If Lochte had just left the tweet he could have played it off like a dog’s 8th birthday is like the 29th birthday of a female character in a CBS sitcom. Carter Lochte, celebrating his 8th birthday for the third time. Play the laugh track.
