Gus Kenworthy Mourns Death of Dog Beemo He Adopted During Winter Olympics 2018

Gus Kenworthy and Matthew Wilkas have sadly announced that they had to say goodbye to their puppy Beemo.

The 26-year-old Olympic skier revealed on Saturday afternoon (May 26) that he had put down his dog after some underlying health issues.

“Two days ago my beautiful baby Beemo passed away,” Gus wrote on Instagram. “It was completely unexpected and Matt and I are beside ourselves trying to cope with her loss. For a week or so we’d been worrying because she was showing less and less interest in her food. There were several trips to the vet and on our final visit this past Thursday I asked them do a full body scan in case there was an underlying issue they had missed. Beemo went into a panic attack during the x-rays and her breathing became rapid and shallow. The scan revealed that her lungs were deteriorated and that her heart was too big for her body – a birth defect we had no way of knowing about.”

While they were in South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics back in February, Gus and Matt revealed that they adopted Beemo, ultimately saving her from one of the country’s many many dog meat farms.

“Beemo was truly the best thing that ever happened to me and I feel so fortunate for our borrowed time together,” Gus continued. “I’ve never loved anything or anyone in the way that I loved that dog and she is and will always be deeply missed. She was so smart and playful. She brought so much happiness to so many people every single day.”
