As soon as the first snowfall of the season hits, you can bet there's at least one happy camper on P.E.I. — an Aussiedoodle who's taken a liking to riding a snowmobile.
Mike Champion sent CBC News a video of the Auzzie taking a short ride around his Kensington yard.
Auzzie is seen jumping up on the snowmobile, eagerly waiting for Champion to take him for a spin.
"We have a snowmobile cabin back in the woods, and I say, 'Do you want to go to the cabin?' and he's out the door," said Champion. "I say, 'We're taking the snowmobile,' and he's on it before I am."
And he's not limited to snowmobiles.
Auzzie also rides on Champion's ATV, motorcycle — and even his ride-on lawnmower.
"I had him out one time on the four-wheeler. I was out with a bunch of the boys and we were out for probably four hours and he was with us the whole time. He just loves it," he said.
Champion isn't wearing a helmet in the video, he said, because it was a very short ride at a slow speed. He said he does wear a helmet on longer drives.
