Chloe Kim shares Sports Illustrated cover — and gold medal! — with her dog

Gold-medal snowboarder and noted churro enthusiast Chloe Kim has earned herself a spot on the cover of Sports Illustrated — and she's not alone.

The 17-year-old shared the big honor with her very best friend, her mini Australian Shepherd, Reese.

Kim shared the cover with her followers on Instagram Tuesday and praised her fluffy pal for "staying still and being a good girl" throughout the shoot.

Reese would likely praise Kim too, if she could. Thanks to the Team USA member, not only did the pup get her moment in the spotlight, she also shared her Olympic bling.

Kim's gold medal, which she won in the women's halfpipe finals, can be seen around the dog's neck in the pic.

Actually, Reese did have something to say about it all — sort of.

The 1-year-old pooch has her own Instagram account in which she shared the same shot, where the caption talks of her "big debut" while simply referring to Kim as her "co-star."

And that's far from Reese's only social media post. Kim has been busy filling up her canine companion's feed with sweet memories and adorable photos for some time.

Fans can expect to see a lot more of this duo on Instagram and beyond. Because, while the star of the 2018 Winter Games recently called out those folks who call themselves her friends now that she's got gold, she knows her relationship with her furry friend is the real deal.
