Like many of the lower 48 States, Alaska received a lot of snow recently. At one point, we had 8 to 9 inches fall in less than 24 hours. With the fresh snowfall came many outside chores. I spent many hours shoveling and snowblowing the walkways, part of the parking lot, and the areas not quite cleared by the plow along the driveway. At our home, I need to regularly access the propane tanks for the kitchen stove, the woodpile, and the garbage shed. After I finished shoveling out those priorities, I cleared the way to the emergency generator. My son, Jared, was charged with clearing off the back deck. This is where our dogs usually hang out when they are outside part of the day. Jared tried diligently to work but kept having a problem. Finally I came outside to help.
While Jared was working to clear the snow, his dog thought he needed help. Of course, Gus didn't help in the normal sense of the word. Instead Gus decided Jared needed to be rescued from the snow shovel. I love how our crazy pets make life so funny! And I just had to share this video with you too.
