not_on_display and I were talking about this site because I was trying to explain how much I hate blow-drying my hair which is now a necessity because 1. it's long and 2. it's cold. The testimonials page is one of my "places you go if you just need a good lol... "You keep calling it a Dyson Ten but I’m warning you, if that thing get’s any closer IT’S GONNA BE A DYSON ATE." :D

Turtle Sundae is a very good name for that very good puppy.

I guess my dog was a traitor to her people because she loved the vacuum. She’d follow it around until I vacuumed her back, at which point she’d do a little wiggle dance.

My dog also loves the vacuum. He's trained us to throw the toys he places atop the vacuum while it's running. He doesn't care about the noise or actual function of the vacuum, to him it's just play time with a mobile prop.

I'm confused - this group is anti-vacuum cleaner? But they're called the vacuum cleaner defense league?

Typical dogs.

So early on with Dog 1, she pooped on the vacuum. Not accidentally. Now she loves getting vacu brushed with an extension that keeps the actual machine far away. But our recent addition, dog 2 aka potato, he hates it. And recently he pooped on it!

Being products of a particular time and culture we repeat the old incantations
for me to poop on
