Watch Elsa the dog shovel Guelph, Ont., backyard hockey rink

Winter got you down? Well, here's a video of a yellow Labrador retriever with a sunny disposition nonchalantly shovelling a backyard hockey rink.

If Ontario's bitter cold is getting you down, we might just have the tonic for you.

Greg Cox shared a video of his dog, a yellow Labrador retriever named Elsa, shovelling a backyard hockey rink in Guelph, Ont., with style and ease.

If we all embraced winter with her good cheer and can-do attitude, we'd be in good shape.

Do you have photos or video of your pets embracing winter?

We'd love to see them.
