The icepocalypse is seemingly on its way out. While it was no joke for a lot of people, for some it was an excuse to frolic in the ice with their confused pets, some of whom seemed deeply unsure about the sudden white coating everything had received. We asked Twitter to send us photos of befuddled mutts.

See. We're no liars.

Without further ado, here are Dallas' Dogs of the Icepocalypse, the brave defenders of Big D from the end of the world.

We're a big fan of Mattie, a dog that is extraordinarily serious about golf. This is despite the ice and the golf ball being the same color, rendering the playing of golf ridiculous. Mattie doesn't know this. He's a dog.


Nola is making what we presume to be a plant pot her own. Undeterred by the ice, she strides through Dallas ready to defend us all from the apocalypse. God bless you Nola.


If there's one dog that enjoyed the icepocalypse, it's Speck. He enjoyed it almost too much.


A more pensive photo this time, as an unnamed dog surveys the landscape that used to be his domain. No longer is it his kingdom. The icepocalypse has taken it. The dog looks on.


Some dogs are prepared to let the Icepocalypse win.

This guy isn't going to let the ice win. He's looking round as if to say "are you ready for what I'm about to do to this ice?" to which I think the answer might be defecate.


Off-camera, a dog owner is being pulled along the street, unwillingly but with no recourse to the power of friction.


This dog thinks that the blanket is the icepocalypse she should be attacking. She is wrong.


These dogs, meanwhile, are on the case. We're all safe when they're around.


We don't know why this dog is our favorite, apart from absolutely everything about this picture. That look is either "Human, what in the actual fuck is going on out here?" or "I got this. Don't worry." What a dog.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
