Canada's East Coast has been slammed with winter weather this week, but a New Brunswick woman wasn't going to let a snow storm come between her and a Tim Hortons coffee.
When flurries struck Sussex, N.B. last Friday, Allyson Mitton decided to pick up some coffee in the most Canadian way possible.
The dog trainer hitched two canines to her sled and rode the "four or five kilometres" into town.
"It was too nasty to take out the car so away we went on the sled," she told CTV's News Channel.
Mitton said the dogs are used to pulling the sled and that they enjoy the activity. But this was the first time they'd travelled all the way into town.
When she pulled up to the coffee shop, Mitton said she and her two Border Collies attracted some attention and surprised reactions.
Wanting to share the moment with her friends and family, Mitton posted video of the journey online and, to her surprise, it quickly took off.
"That was a huge surprise," Mitton said. "But I suppose when you combine snowstorms and dogs and sleds and Tim Hortons, everybody likes that."
As for where Mitton and her dogs plan to go next, she says, "We go on adventures all the time. Who knows where we'll be next."
