This is one lucky pup.

Many of us are dealing with the cold these days, but Canadians are taking it in stride. At least, in Dan McFee’s case (and that of his dog, Linus!).

McFee, a Calgary resident, wanted to be sure Linus was still getting his exercise despite the bitter cold and snowy weather, so he took it upon himself to create a winter-wonderland obstacle course for his canine bestie!

Check out the sharp turns — and Linus’ joyful bunny hops as he takes them in stride!

“He’s running probably 10-15 minutes, just doing tracks, doing loops and, yeah, he’s just having fun,” McFee told CTV Calgary.

And when the dog park is out of the question, it’s certainly a nice option to have.
