The Coolest Cool Vent

Many of you have wondered if this is the only vent in the room since we all seem to huddle around it.

Pre-Ciara, it was definitely Thunder's favorite cool spot in the house. But as you have seen, a certain princess has claimed first dibs on it. And despite all the votes from our readers that Phantom should have the vent all to himself, he really doesn't want the vent, he just wants his window.

There actually are THREE vents along that same wall. Three vents, three dogs, doesn't seem too difficult to work it out, right?

Maybe after you watch this very short video, you will understand why.

And that's the rest of the story.

Ahhhh, it feels so good. We hit 102 here yesterday with a heat index of 116 - and it is only expected to get worse as the week moves along.

OOoooo a science experiment- yep, it answers the DWB's question? only one vent? nope. only one supah coolie vent!

yeah move it ciara:)

just reading about your heat- makes me want to eat an ice cube!!


Sam said...

Well, that makes a lot of sense then! Now we know why that is a popular vent!


Myndi Brunty said...

Wow, definitely the coolest cool vent!

I loved the look on Ciara's face as you went to move her though =] How dare a human move a husky princess from her vent, much less move her and then give the vent to a balloon!

Mango said...

That was an excellent and most scientific demonstration. I am glad we don't have those vents or stupid peewee would choke it with his labraself. Our AC blows generous airs about so there are several optimal spots.


Sapphire said...

now that's obvious!

Gus said...

Classic Pi@@ed off dog look from Ciara!

and yes, now we understand why that is the favorite vent!


Mack said...

I could tell what Ciara was thinking - She wanted her cool spot back !!

Our heat index was 107 yesterday. This is just too much!

the booker man said...

now that was a grrreat informational! i can totally see why cool vent #3 is so coveted! miss ciara, i do think you should share a little bit with TD, okie dokie? :)

Mr. Pip said...

We don't have vents like this! Boy, I am jealous! My favorite place to stay cool is the bathroom floor - the tile stays nice and cool.

Your pal, PIp

Maggie Mae said...

OK now it makes sense for sure! We don't have those venty things in our house either. Under the ceiling fan on the kitchen floor is the spot for me!

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Surely you could have done the experiment at another time, when the pricess would not have been disturbed!

Phantom should definately have first dibs on the vent! But don't tell Ciara I said so!

OOOOOOOH you is so lucky we don't have vent or AC's here and that is mega poopy we just have blowy fan things which muss up my newly growin back furs but my Momma did gets me a special cooling mat to lay on and when it's really hot here it goes in the refrigerator machine befores I lay on it and then it gets really colds and I ends up with a chilly tummy


Ms. ~K said...

Very COOL demonstration!
Stay safe in this heat.
Hugs and belly rubs to all,
~K and the Pups

jen said...

Great video, it explains it all!

The other day I was wondering why it was so warm in our house even though the air conditioner was running nonstop!
Well it was because both the newfs were smoothering the vents in the family room! Go figure!

Frankie Furter said...

102 !! YIKES !!!!!!!
I think that you three are VENTING your frustrations with the high temps.. hehehehe

Stella said...

I love demos! I loved that you made Ciara move when she didn't want to.

My Mom says they are calling for 90 to 95 degrees F today and for us, that is mighty hot! I don't think we will do much time outside today.

We don't have a coolerator or vents, but we do have fans and I like the one over Mom's bed best!

Take it easy today, you pups and humans!.


Sue said...

Hmmm... good demo. I think I'll try that on our vents because there seem to be favorites in our house too. And Samba knows exactly where the vents are in each room.

YD, sometimes with ♥Samantha and ♥June said...

Woos are definitely smart doggies, picked out the coolest vent in the house!

Scout 'n Freyja said...

The way Ciara looked back at that balloon blowing in the cool air is PRICELESS! If I woulda' been her I woulda' walked over an' put the bitey on that thing.

Minna Krebs said...

OP Mom, you are impressive with your scientifical experiment! Butt you prolly could have gotten da same information directly from Princess Ciara! BOL.

I'm with everybuddy else.....loved Ciara's 'look' when you made her move HEeeHEE! If she knows any HBO words, I am sure she was thinking them!


Cyber-sibes said...

It's 102, and she dragged woo off your air vent for that? 'Nufff said.

(Good choice, Ciara)
Jack a-roo & miss moo

PS - maybe now would be a good time to come visit us - it's only in the 80's and there's a furry nice breeze off the ocean!

Mr. Pip said...

Hi again - I am sure you have received this many times, BUT I just gave you an award for being one of my favorite new friends/blogs!

Your pal, Pip

Mrs. JP said...

Love the video...what a look you got when you moved her for the last vent. Too funny.

Bijou said...

Pawfect demonstration! We would prolly pick #3 too. Maybe you three doggies could take turns?

No? Oh well, it was just a suggestion. BOL


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

It's a good thing we didn't come in when we visited. Steve probably would have plopped himself down on that vent and hogged all of the air!


Amy and The House of Cats said...

Our vents are like that too - but we still think Phantom should get the best one right now while he is in cone mode!

Lacy said...

w00fs, happy Phantom is doing well..heehee, smart puppy getting the coolist vent...gonna b a hot week here too..

b safe,

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Bill Nye The Science Guy has nothing on The Momster!

Khousin Merdie and I are khurrently on Vent #3!

Please don't feel khompelled to send THAT weather here as we are already sulking that we've been told NO walk 'til khloser to dusk -

Khyra and Khousin Merdie
PeeEssWoo: Of khourse, in the winter we'll take all the snow and khool woo got to ship to The East!

BeadedTail said...

We enjoyed your vent demo but we don't think Ciara did! Our mommy laughed so loud the neighbors probably heard her!

Anonymous said...

That picture was worth a thousand words!

woo woos, Tessa

doyle and mollie said...

aw but the best one is always the one someone else wants woof hooooo

Sychoberians said...

We dont like taking tests but since this is so easy we pick vent three. Do we pass the Woos test?

Stay cool,

Remy and Flash

Ginger Jasper said...

That explains it. I just loved the face that said You want me to move.. Stay cool.. HUgs GJ x

sprinkles said...

That video explains it all!

Aksharaa said...

Now that was something!!!Even Stephen Hawking would be proud of you guys for all that scientific analysis!!At least Phantom doesn't want this vent and there is one less competitor!
How is he doing...apart from being sad we mean...we reeeaaaly hope his wound is healing well.
Hey! PLEASE PLEASE PULEEEZZZ come play that colour game with us? Maggie and Mitch plays regularly and we try to too. it is so much fun.
we would love to have u come and play too.
Bud n Gin

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Yes that is definitely that best vent in the house and some little doggies know it...
HOT here too. It is quite unusual for you all though.. Stay cool..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Deborah said...

OMD, that is a riot! We'll pick vent # 3 LOL
Stay cool my friends!

Sagira said...

Wow, I don't blame you guys for wanting vent 3.

♥♥♥♥Team Husky♥♥♥♥ said...

Oh yes we can definitely see why that's the most popular vent in your house!!!

Come on Thunder - take your vent back.....or are you scared of a girl lol?

Big hugs and snooter smooches to you all, healing vibes coming Phantom's way too!

Team Husky

houndstooth said...

We can't seem to get much of a break on the heat, either! It's in the high nineties here today with triple digit heat index. If we had those flat cold vents on the floor, we'd be laying on them, too!


Huffle Mawson said...

I'm sorry you all are so hot. It's 7C here right now - why don't you come over?

Maggie and Mitch said...

Now we know why #3 is the most popular! Stay cool, guys!
We dream of snow daily!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

♥I am Holly♥ said...

That's a very good experiment! We certainly can see why everyone would want vent #3!!! Ciara looked so cute looking back at the balloon when you moved her!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! Of course ... very smart. Yes the heat is back here too. Stay Col. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Lola said...

Well, that certainly explains that. Blog Mom wants to know how you keep that carpet so clean. She insisted I ask what your secret is.

lotsa licks, Lola

pam said...

We are comin to yer rescue cause we had this problem too. You get yer mommy to go to the Home Depot store and they have these fan thingys that fit right inside the vents. It's like a miracle we tell ya a miracle!!!

Bobo and Meja (yer welcome furry puppies)

Ed note: We had this problem at the end of the so called line of duct work and these fan jobbies at The Ticket. No installation they just fit right in the vent.

Lorenza said...

Now I understand why vent # 3 is soooo popular!
Kisses and hugs

Tanuki Maxx said...

Wow! Wish we have a kool vent too!!
Well wishes for Phantom and hi to Thunder!!


Life With Dogs said...

Oh gross please keep it - or just send it to Frankie. That is a heat index I never wish to feel.

And now we know why they covet the frigid one...

Audrey the Photographer Dog said...

stay cool! xox

Piappies World said...

The science experiment is funny but sure answers the mystery as to why THAT vent is the favorite.
Enjoy the cool air, Phantom, Thunder and Ciara!
Ciara, that's for you to share, alright?! =)

Piappies Fudgie, Princess, Frappie, Mocha, Sugar, Wai-Pai & Wai-Max

Holly and Khady said...

Well, that's sure a no-brainer! Excellent way to illustrate too!

Oh, and I am totally all over our cool air vents too!

We're feeling your pain with the heat. At 10 PM here the heat index was still 98!

Stay cool my friends!

Khady Lynn

The Luke said...

I fink you free are very scientifically accelerated in the brain power! That and I bet you each like as much cool airs on the belly as possible.

Just sayin.

Fank you very much for he enlightenment! A scientific experiment is much MUCH funner than words on a page!

wif love from the Luke

The Luke said...

P.S. Gosh and I fought it was hot here yesterday... but our heat index was only 112!

The Thundering Herd said...

We think you should get Tim The Toolman Taylor to work on your air vents so you have maximum velocity. What could go wrong?

P.S. - At least you HAVE air vents.

Ruby's Raiser said...

But of course! The OP Pack's Mommy didn't raise no dopey doggies!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

"Moooooommm! The balloon took my vent!"

Danielle said...

Love reading about your Pack. Thanks for sharing.

Kari in WeHo said...

haha I love that they all go after the same vent!

Don't forget, we moved to
