​This Dog Has Special Goggles So She Can Play In The Snow

This adorable pooch has been given her own special set of 'doggles' to help her play care-free in the snow.

Beautiful Border Collie, Maple, has been captured on film rolling around in the snow wearing the goggles, which have been especially designed for active dogs.

They help keep eyes free from debris and protected from the sun. Dogs can get sunburnt too y'know!

And two-year-old Maple is definitely active.

Her owner, Jessica Dylan Mann, 25 said: "Maple does a lot of outdoor things such as fishing with me, riding on the back of the four wheeler, rolling in mud, swimming completely underwater with her head under, blasting through snow, running next to me while I skate, so these goggles went on sale on Black Friday so I decided what the heck I will get her a pair."

Although the idea of the specs is to protect her, Maple from Vermont, US, wasn't sure at first.

Jessica said: "It took her about twenty minutes to get used to them and now when I say are you ready for your goggles she comes over and sits patiently in front of me and wags her tail as soon as I put them on she darts out the door!"

This dog is too much.

Jessica added: "I personally think hanging her head out of the window on the highway is her favourite so she can keep her eyes open and get all the great smells."

The goggles she wears - Rex Specs - were developed by a couple, Jesse Emilio and Aiden Doane, whose dogs were constantly outside with them running on trails, wading through rivers and climbing peaks, until one day their time together was cut short.

Both of their dogs, Tuckerman and Yaz were diagnosed with harmful eye conditions worsened by exposure to the sun, with their German Shepherd also suffering chronic sunburn around her eyes.

After an extensive search for a dog goggle and struggling to find the right pair, Jesse and Aiden created their own.

And now, fur-babies like Maple get the protection they need when out in the sunshine for prolonged periods.

Jessica added: "You can tell she is so excited to explore these new adventures with a new cool item that protects her eyes and fits super comfortably.

"She is truly my soulmate".
