Well here is where my question/observation came from. I took the pup to the Vet today and he was telling a woman that she should not let her Golden ride with its head sticking out the window. He told her it will dry the pup's eyes out.
Then I saw that pic and I thought, damn! He should have goggles so his eyes don't dry out on the way down. I used to own a jeep and my eyes always dried out when I rode with the top down.
Then I saw your post referencing a 'vacuum' and I thought..."gee, I wonder @DasBoot means that he lives in a vacuum and has always wondered the same thing and was irked because only SEAL's got goggles for their dogs".
It must be the Merlot, but I just had a vision of a dog being lowered like gear, pre landing. Love to have a pic of that...green clad killer from the sky with a freaked out frozen puppy dangling 10 metres below the canopy. Woof!
