For those of us who are fat and rendered irritable and senseless by fiery temperatures, Kinston, NC’s Mako the Siberian Husky is our new leader. Fuck air conditioning, dips in the pool, remaining perfectly still, or imagining yourself up a snowy mountain. Just straight-up climb into an ice maker and lay your body down. This vid was taken from Mako’s owner and Kinton business owner Eric S. Rouse’ Facebook page (he’s already calling himself Mako’s manager) and posted to YouTube. Mako has his own Facebook page now, too! Here’s the scoop via Kinston.com.
When they got back to the house, Mako had a drink of water and everybody went there own way. But a little later Rouse heard something and went to investigation. He saw Mako’s hind legs climbing into the ice machine near his garage. He called his wife and told her to start videoing it.
“I guess he smelled the ice or felt the cold air and flipped it open with his nose and got in, knowing it would feel good,” Rouse said.
When they opened the door to the ice machine, there was Mako, lying content on the ice. He turned his head away from the attention.
“I’m so ashamed,” Eric Rouse said on the video like he was talking for the dog.
But Mako wasn’t ashamed. He turned his head back around and buried his snout in the ice and went to sleep, enjoying the coolest place in the house.
Ashamed? The hell is wrong with you, Eric? Mako should be celebrated by sweaty bitches everywhere for pooh-poohing social mores and lowering his body temperature in the most efficient way possible. Who gives a crap if some of your customers have dog hair in their soda? The South is sweltering!
