What Is It?

The answer to the "what is it" question on SOOC Sunday is a vacuum: an animal vacuum to be exact.

As some of you may know, I cracked my right ankle last month, could not drive, and was confined to the house. Luc, our Lab, sheds a lot. When on the go, the regular vacuum was good enough even though for years I really wanted to get another specifically for pet owners. Being cooped up for well over 4 weeks, I started obsessing on long, white doggie hair. A vacuum for pet hair moved over from a want to a necessity.

On the very day the doctor gave the okay to remove the "boot" to drive, I went straight over to Home Depot to check out the vacuums. Hours were wiled away on the net searching for the best vacuum to address this problem. Finally, after reading pros and cons from sites all around the net, I settled on the Dyson Dc25 Animal. Since its arrival Tuesday of last week, I've run it at least once a day and sometimes two and three times. It is light and easy to use. The directions on one or two things could use a little improvement; but after fiddling around, I got the hang of it.

I'm not one to go on about an appliance, but this one is good. It is the best I've ever had and so am quite delighted.

Until next time, God bless.

I guessed right. I know all about that Lab hair. Gets on everything. I do a lot of vacuuming too. I dread the spring shedding season. Too bad I can't sell the stuff for sweaters or something. I could make a million.

When we were younger, my sister and I once owned a black lab called "Oreo" ooh... the shedding! Looks like you've got yourself a handy gadget over there! How cool is that! Yay!

I was looking at one of those not too long ago so the purple would have been a give away for me. If I had stayed home this weekend!
