My future husband (and Olympic skier), Gus Kenworthy, is actually taking that litter of puppies home with him from Sochi. He was supposed to leave for the U.S. today, but is staying longer to get all the paperwork done, so the pups and their mom can make the journey with him.
Via CBS News:
The 22-year-old who lives in Telluride, Colo., was scheduled to return home from Sochi on Monday, nearly a week after Kenworthy was part of a historic sweep by the U.S. as slopestyle skiing made its Olympic debut.
Yet Kenworthy's medal in some ways took a backseat to his decision to adopt four puppies - along with their mother - he discovered near the media center at the base of the mountain that houses the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.
Kenworthy wasn't kidding. He is taking all five dogs back to the U.S. with him, but getting the paperwork done is taking some time.
A U.S. skiing official says Kenworthy had to push back his plans so the dogs can join him for the long trip halfway across the world back home.
I think I'm in love...
