The Daily Squee: Olympian Gus Kenworthy Finally Brings Home His Rescued Sochi Puppies

Gus Kenworthy Sochi Puppies
Even Better Than A Silver Medal!

Freestyle skiier Gus Kenworthy rescuing a litter of stray puppies off the streets of Sochi was one of our favorite stories to come out of this year’s Winter Olympics. And now, after a ton of red tape, bureaucratic wrangling, uncertainty, and a little bit of tragedy, those puppies have finally arrived at their new home. Kenworthy’s friend Robin Macdonald stayed in Sochi almost a month after the Olympics ended to ensure the dogs would be cared for and accompany the brood on their journey home. Unfortunately, one of the puppies became so sick and malnourished in a Sochi shelter that it passed away before it could make the trip. Luckily, the rest of the dogs (three puppies, their mom, and another stray) are now settled in Denver, healthy and happy. Kenworthy, Macdonald, and a few of the rescued pooches made an appearance on The Today show this morning to share the rest of this crazy and heartwarming saga. Kenworthy brought home a silver medal from Sochi, but he also saved the lives of 5 dogs who almost certainly would have died otherwise. He has a lot to be proud of. [Today]

Here is a puppy chewing on stairs, because who doesn’t need to see a puppy chewing on the stairs? Nobody, that’s who. The stairs must taste pretty good because that little guy just won’t quit. My favorite part is when he takes a break and yawns because, well, chewing on things is pretty darn exhausting. [Jezebel]

15 Reasons Why Baby Animal Photos Are Better Than Real Babies

The photos released of a gaggle of painfully adorable baby pandas in China this week has left me a little more obsessed than usual with all things baby and furry. In photo form, baby animals are pretty much the best thing in the world — all that cuteness with no caretaking required. I love real babies and all, but I’d choose pictures of puppies and tiger cubs instead any day of the week. So, inspired by Jessica’s post this week about how Internet-famous cats are much better than real life cats, are 14 reasons why baby animal photos are better than real babies.  Keep reading »
