George Clooney's pranks have gone to the dogs.

The Descendants star and notorious jokester has been spending the Christmas holiday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with lady love Stacy Keibler and pals including Cindy Crawford and Alex Rodriguez. But it was A-Rod who found himself the target of Clooney's mischief Wednesday.

While the Yankees third baseman help up a pair of binoculars to take in the view, a grinning Clooney moved in from the side, holding a Chihuahua in the air, and apparently over the ledge. Rodriguez seemed startled by the maneuver, but by all appearances, the dog looked to be unharmed by the practical joke.
