Labradors were once bred for their skills as hunting and fishing dogs, but it turns out, they're also good to have around during a Canadian winter.
Greg Cox's yellow lab Elsa in particular is really pulling her weight at their house. The Guelph, Ont. resident posted a video to YouTube Sunday that shows Elsa pushing a shovel across their backyard hockey rink.
He caught the sportscaster's attention, who responded by saying the video was "beautiful."
Cox's daughter Claire can also be heard cheering Elsa on in the background, he wrote on Twitter.
One reaction to Cox's video came from a dad who was clearly jealous of Elsa's eagerness.
@gregpcox That video is awesome on so many levels Greg. Your pup did more shoveling in that clip than my kids have all winter!

If only we were all this excited to shovel our driveways and sidewalks.
