This Dog ‘Gets’ Winter… And Wants To Help In The Best Way Possible.

When the snow is heavy and the temperatures are frigid, one of the hardest things to do is muster up the gumption to go outside and shovel.

That's why you need a dog like Elsa around.

According to owner Greg Cox, one day Elsa just went outside, picked up the shovel with her mouth, and went to work on clearing out his family's hockey rink. He managed to record it, and it is quite a sight to behold.

In an interview, Cox said he had no idea why or how Elsa got the idea to shovel:

We didn't teach her at all. She watched us do it many times and loved being out there, so who knows?

One explanation might have something to do with her breed: Elsa is a yellow Labrador, and labs are known for being whip-smart and able to imitate behavior. Then again, maybe this Canadian canine just wanted to play some hockey.
