The Best News I Heard All Week!

This week we heard a wonderful story thanks to fellow blogger and friend Maria Appleby!

And who is NOT in love with Gus Kenworthy this week? Sure, he won a silver medal in the slopestyle event, but it’s his adoption of a mama dog and her four puppies that have us all smiling from ear to ear.

GK
Is he not the cutest thing ever?

Have you NOT heard about him staying in Sochi an extra week just so he could make arrangements to adopt these dogs?

This is too cute for words!

Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska worked with Kenworthy to make it possible for him to bring the family to the US. And who paid to bring them over? None other than McDonald’s. Look for ads with Kenworthy soon!

Here’s Kenworthy with little Rosa. Awwwww……

And the best part is he is just an all-around good kid. He works hard. He has fun. And his heart is as big as they come. Well done, Gus!

  1. What a beautiful story!!! In fact I didn’t know about Gus Kenworthy but after reading this post, I’m sure that I’d be a big fan of him because his heart is so lovely! Besides to brings those pups from Rossia to US, there are some other people who help it which makes me feel so moved. Bravo Gus!!! I hope that these pups would have wonderful life in US! 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this story! It’s been the kind of week where something positive like this is just what was needed 🙂 Kudos to Gus and his mom for raising awareness of adoption – and for improving the quality of life for five dog’s in the process!

      1. Good news is the bestest – I love finding bits of it I wasn’t aware of (we’re missing a lot of news this winter.)

  3. Absolutely fabulous story Rumpy!!! hurrah for this wonderful kind young man for setting such a wonderful example to the World!!! Gus you are a GOLD MEDALIST in being a HUMANE Human!! Well done!!!

    P.S.: Those pups are so adorable!!

  4. With all the stray dogs over there, what a wonderful thing to do. And what a big family he’s going to have all of a sudden. They’ll all be fighting to see who gets to take Gus for walks on his leash.

  5. Thanks for sharing this great news, Rumpy!! And because Gus brought so much attention to the many stray dogs in Sochi, maybe other people who live there will be thinking of adopting strays, too. That would be the best thing of all. Someone needs to start up a good spay and neuter program so there won’t be so many strays. OurPeople helped T(rap)N(euter)R(eturn) ten kitties in a feral colony last weekend. It was quite an adventure!
