This Golden Retriever's Summer Love for Air Conditioning Is a Mood
Jul 15, 2023
One golden retriever is doing what we all wish we could this summer: Flop onto the floor and let the cold air conditioning wash over us in blissful waves.
Cooper, a TikTok-famous dog with more than 150,000 followers, was filmed on July 13 sprawled out on the floor and partially blocking an entrance at Ngee Ann City, a mall along Singapore's glitzy Orchard Road shopping district.
Cooper's owner, who runs the TikTok account, was seen attempting to rouse Cooper from his flat-out sprawl, to no avail.
We can't blame the dog for trying to bask in the air conditioning before venturing out into Singapore's tropical heat — especially since his love for AC has already been documented. A March TikTok video shows Cooper giving his owner the side-eye over the AC being switched off.
And while a golden retriever lounging in a mall is really just a cute video, it comes as countries around the world, from Asia to Europe, are shattering their temperature records.
In the US, Southern states have been facing record-breaking heat waves this month, per NBC. And the temperatures in Death Valley's Furnace Creek reached 128 degrees Fahrenheit on Sunday, though that didn't deter tourists from pushing their bodies to the limit to see what skyrocketing temperatures feel like.
Stay breezy and hydrated out there, everyone. (Especially Cooper, the coolest dog in town.)
