This wins for the most wonderful story of the week. Jordan Kahana was all set to adopt a Husky when he got “cold feet” and went home by himself. He put aside the idea of getting a dog and instead planned a road trip. He never expected what he would find on the highway:

His journey would take him from his home in Los Angeles to Arizona, for a visit to the Grand Canyon. “OK, I’m driving up to the Grand Canyon in the middle of nowhere, Arizona,” he says while he drives. Suddenly, down a completely empty stretch of highway, he makes out two dark little shapes that prompt him to pull over. “You will not believe what I just found in the middle of the road!” he says. Two 8-week-old puppies, completely alone. Completely shocked, Kahana would chase them down and rescue them from the road before taking them to an animal hospital in nearby Page. There, they were taken care of, given their shots, and right then and there, Kahana decided to adopt the two pups, calling himself and the duo the “Adventure Squad” and documenting their journey back to their new home!

Cheers to Jordan for being such a good guy — although it’s hard not to want to help two adorable pups like these.
