Gus Kenworthy and his boyfriend Matt Wilkas concluded their summer of love by escaping to Fire Island Pines, New York for the long holiday weekend. And they brought their new pup, Birdie, along for the ride.

The other day, Matt shared this photo of himself, Gus, and Birdie lounging by the poolside with his 150+ Instagram followers, along with the caption: “Puppy pile.”


The guys adopted Birdie last month, just a few weeks after losing their first dog, Beemo, who passed away suddenly after it was discovered she was born with an enlarged heart.

Birdie came along in August.

“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),” Gus said in an Instagram post.

“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.”

We’re glad the guys are having such a great time with their new four-legged companion.
