The 22-year-old athlete and avowed animal lover is planning on taking four puppies and their mother back to the states with him after discovering them under a security tent where they lived outside of a media center in Sochi. He tweeted that he's doing all he can to prep mama dog and her pups by giving them their necessary vaccinations. "I'm trying...I'm doing what I can," he says, also stating that he's found potential homes for the dogs stateside.
Russian player Drozdov ate the ice during their 7-6 win over the Swiss team today. Though Russia is 1-4 in Curling games so far, maybe this is the kind of rude awakening they need to continue on.
