Husky Chills Out In Ice Machine To The Beat Dog Days Of Summer [Video]

A Siberian Husky decided there was something he could do about turning the temperature down, and the video of him chilling in an ice machine proves that there’s more than one way to beat the summer heat.

Ahhhh…summer in North Carolina. I spent over half of the last two decades sweating it out in the North Carolina summer heat and humidity and I have the frizzy-haired pictures to prove it. It can get downright sweltering, particularly in eastern North Carolina, and so it is no surprise to me that a video out of Kinston is proof that every dog has his day (in an ice machine).

The viral video showed a Siberian Husky named Mako saying to hell with the weather and tucking himself into an ice machine to cool off. Siberian Huskies are…well, Siberian in lineage, and the summer heat doesn’t necessarily remind them of home.

But for Mako, who had just gone on a run with his human, Alice Rouse, he knew what cold air was when he felt it (or smelled it, or whatever he did to figure out how to get to it) and Rouse said that he flipped the lid off an ice machine and just climbed right on in to sit a spell, as they say in the south.

Cool dog! Looks like I need to lock the ice maker. .You can follow Mako on his page below.……For licensing and or usage contact licensing at

Rouse said that she couldn’t find Mako when they got home, and then the proof was in the tail wagging from inside the ice machine. The video posted to Facebook has over 11 million views, and it’s no wonder–how often do you see a dog decided to kennel himself inside an ice machine?

The video cracks us up because Alice’s husband Eric posted it and you can hear him say, “He’s so ashamed,” in reference to Mako’s disposition and attitude when found in the ice machine. The thing is…look closely. That dog does not seem one bit ashamed, and every bit as comfy and cozy as he can be. Heck, he started to fall asleep!

Bless his little heart!
