Sure, the X Games is all fun and games for most, but for a few four-legged friends, the action sports event in Aspen, Colorado is all business.
From companion animals and avalanche rescue dogs to Instagram celebrity pups, the X Games is seeing a lot of furry action. Check out a few of the adorable dogs we met while cruising the streets in Aspen.
Loki the Wolfdog
If you don’t know Loki, then you don’t know Instagram-famous dogs. Loki, who happens to be part wolf, boasts nearly 1 million fans on the ‘gram. He’s on hand at the X Games as a brand ambassador for GoPro. He is also live-streaming the event on Periscope from the camera on his back. Pretty tech-savvy pup!
Piper the Avalanche Rescue Dog
Piper, a tolling retriever, can move faster than most humans down the slopes of Snowmass. Elite Daily was lucky enough to take a run down the mountain with the little pup and her handler. We’d be happy to have her rescue us any day!
Zara the Avalanche Rescue Dog
Zara, like her co-worker Piper, is an avalanche rescue dog in Aspen. She #Loves tennis balls, cuddles and big slobbery kisses. She’s a big, lovable American lab, so when you see her, give her a hug!
Zoot the Mountain Ambassador
Zoot, an Airedale, is a smooshy, fluffy local celebrity in Aspen who enjoys a good pat on the head from skiers and snowboarders alike. Beyond roughhousing with his other four-legged friends, Zoot also works as an avalanche rescue dog.
Chevy the Husky
Chevy simply loves the snow — I mean look at him, he was born for it! Chevy is another local lad who decided to come to the X Games to check out the awesome competition unfold. He, like the rest of the wolf pack above, is always down for a strong cuddle and a few licks to the face.
