A little bit of snow can’t keep this dog down – literally. In the final days of winter, snow has Aspen the pooch jumping for joy.
Minneapolis residents Lindsay Knutson and 4-year-old daughter Flora accompanied their cold weather-loving canine on a family outing through the snow. While the pair bundled up, it was no jacket required for Aspen, who passed on doggy clothes in favor of his notably fluffy fur coat.
