Gus Kenworthy et son petit ami Matt Wilkas ont conclu leur été d’amour en s’échappant à Fire Island Pines, à New York, pour le long week-end de vacances. Et ils ont amené leur nouveau chiot, Birdie, pour la balade.
L’autre jour, Matt a partagé cette photo de lui-même, Gus et Birdie au bord de la piscine avec ses plus de 152.000 abonnés Instagram, ainsi que la légende: «Édifice de chiots».

Les deux garçons ont adopté Birdie le mois dernier, quelques semaines à peine après avoir perdu leur premier chien, Beemo, qui est décédé subitement après la découverte à sa naissance d’un problème cardiaque important.
Birdie est arrivé en août.
«C’est un mélange Jindo coréen/ Labrador « batard » de 5 mois et nous l’avons baptisé Birdie (parce que les oiseaux étaient l’une des choses préférées de Beemo)», a déclaré Gus dans un message Instagram.
« Rien au monde ne pourrait jamais remplacer Beemo ou l’amour que nous ressentions et ressentons encore pour elle, mais Birdie a déjà pris une grande place dans nos cœurs et nous sommes ravis d’être à nouveau les heureux papas de ce chien. »

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 👨👨👧🐥🐶🐾❤️ 🇺🇸
Nous sommes heureux que les deux garçons passent un si bon moment avec leur nouveau compagnon à quatre pattes.

My dad's friend @taylormillerphoto has shot with @tyrabanks and @adrianalima so obviously he needed to shoot with me. Despite being new to modeling he told me that I had more camera presence and natural ability than anyone he's ever worked with. Sorry Tyra, his words not mine…
