Let's see: There's a Winter Storm Warning for southeastern Minnesota that's forecast to dump up to a foot of snow on our area. What we need is a dog like THIS one to grab his shovel and help get those sidewalks and driveways clear later today!

Wait, a dog that shovels snow? It's true. With all the snow that's already fallen (and still falling) across southeast this morning, I don't know about you, but I could use several of these dogs.

Now, I should point out that I have a real fondness for German Shepherds-- the first dog we had when I was a kid was Lucky, a German Shepherd-- so I found this video pretty cute right off the bat.

But check out how handy the dog in this video actually is. According to the YouTube video, Gangster really LOVED the snow-- because he got to help his owner shovel.

Talk about being Man's Best Friend! And check it out-- Gangster actually looks like he could move a pretty good amount of snow, too.

Our dog, Chance, loved to eat snowballs you'd gently toss to him and loved to run around in the snow. But he probably wouldn't have had any idea on how to work a snow shovel.

So, I guess it'll just be me behind the snowblower when I get home. But I'll be thinking about Gangster here while I do it!
