Gus Kenworthy Takes His Boyfriend and Pup to the Beach

There is so much adorableness in this photo, we don't really know where to begin.

Olympic Bronze medalist Gus Kenworthy recently adopted a new pup after the unfortunate loss of his other one named Beemo, who passed away in May from a birth defect.

They named their new rescue dog (Beemo was one as well) Birdie, where Gus went into detail about his decision to adopt another pup in such a short period of time on his Instagram Friday.

Birdie even shares an Instagram account with the late Beemo, which boasts 134,000 followers. Not too shabby.

 

 

The day Matt and I visited the horrifying dog meat farm in South Korea we witnessed a mother dog giving birth to a litter of pups. The people at @hsiglobal told us that had they not been there filming my visit nobody would've seen the pups immediately and they likely would've died in the brutal cold. Luckily though I saw them and they were rushed inside and saved. A few weeks later when all 90 of the dogs on that farm (including Beemo) were flown to North America that mother and her newborn litter were the only ones that stayed behind because the pups were too young to travel. After Beemo passed away I was feeling completely empty and I reached back out to the Humane Society International to find out what happened to that litter. I found out that they were still in Korea and I began getting photo and video updates on them as I waited for another farm closure and an opportunity for them to be brought to the States. That finally happened and four days ago I picked this little girl up in DC. She's a 5-month-old Jindo/ Lab mix and we named her Birdie (because birds were one of Beemo's favorite things in the world). Nothing in the world could ever replace Beemo or the love that we felt and still feel for her but Birdie has already stolen a new place in our hearts and we're excited to be dog dads again. A HUGE thank you goes out to @hsiglobal for bringing our new baby home and for all they do for animals in need around the world (follow them and support their cause). Also an immense amount of gratitude goes to @awlaarlington for taking care of Birdie in DC until I could fly there to pick her up! I am going to continue Beemo's Instagram with pupdates on Birdie. I was nervous that would seem disrespectful to Beemo's memory but I actually LOVE the idea that both of my beautiful little girls will share the page. Also, a huge part of the reason I started Beemo's page in the first place was to continue promoting animal rescue and raise awareness for the dog meat trade and since the page already has a following I thought it'd be more impactful to keep it going rather than start all over again. Follow along! @b_pups #DogsAreFriendsNotFood #AdoptDontShop

Gus and his cutie boyfriend Matt Wilkas went to the Fire Island Pines over the weekend, where they took Birdie with them for a fun day in the sun. Oh and Matt was shirtless, Gus wasn't (but there's plenty of those photos outside of this one).

He also made a funny dog reference in relation to the pic he posted. "I keep them both on short leashes..." he joked. 

Woof, so much woof. 

 

 

I keep them both on short leashes...

I never could stand this stereotypical semi-famous homosexual. Constantly attention seeking without his shirt on. Just shut up and ski!
