Matthew Wilkas Tattoos

Beemo was rescued by Matthew and Gus during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games, which were held in South Korea in the beginning of 2018. But unfortunately, Beemo passed away in May due to complications arising from a congenital abnormality.

The two went on a harrowing excursion to a dog meat farm, where they not only met and adopted their first dog, Beemo, but also saw the birth of their other puppy, Birdie. The trip left them feeling physically ill.

Despite the limited amount of time they spent with Beemo, she managed to profoundly affect their lives and win their hearts. They vowed to get tattoos in memory of the dog after it passed away, and they want to keep their word. Gus surprised Matthew by bringing him to London for New Year’s and setting up appointments for us to finally get their tattoos done. Matthew was in London for the holiday.

Birdie, a South Korean rescue dog, was added to the family in August of 2018, when the couple took her in. But Gus was concerned that he might be disrespecting Beemo’s memory in any way.

Gus said that “nothing in the world could ever replace Beemo, or the love that we had and still feel for her,” but that “Birdie has already stolen a new place in our hearts,” and that they were “happy to be dog fathers again.” Birdie was a new puppy when Beemo passed away.
