Daily Fluff: Enterprising dogs make money shoveling snow

Enterprising Dogs Make Money Shoveling Snow
At five rawhide bones per driveway, these pups' rate can't be beat.

Two dogs from Bangor, ME named Jake and Cooper have found success shoveling snow for neighbors.

"Most people around these parts have really long driveways," explained neighborhood resident Tag Paxson. "Snow removal is a fact of life, but it’s still a pain in the butt."

That’s why so many people have jumped at the service Jake and Cooper are providing. They were overwhelmed with clients after a recent snowfall and actually had to turn some folks away.

"It takes them awhile," said Martha Fennermaier, a customer, "since they mostly just push the snow around with their noses and I think they eat a lot of it. But the results are fantastic if you’re willing to wait."

Plus, they’re dirt cheap. They charge just five rawhide bones per driveway — much less than most neighborhood children.

This cat trying to jump in the snow totally meant to do that
No, you cannot has coordination in the snow. Waffles, a plump orange tabby, is quickly becoming the Internet's latest beloved feline. A 20-second video of the cat attempting—and failing—a jump from a snow-covered car onto a ledge is quickly gaining traction (unlike Waffles). The YouTube video has received over 2,500 views since being posted on December 15.
