Dyson Animale DC-28

With two medium sized dogs in the house and out of the house all day long (not to mention their playdates!) it’s hard to manage to keep your floors clean and free of pet hair. That’s essential if you want to practice feng shui. My old vacuum cleaner couldn’t keep up. In fact, I think our house killed the poor thing. So when it came time to replace the vac this year I did a ton of online research. Dyson came highly recommended but also highly priced . The Dyson company has a full range of vacs but for pet owners, this one is state-o-the-art. The suction power practically drags you across the room. It has all kinds of filtering technology that takes care of pet hair, pollen, allergens, even mold and returns the vented air fresher than when it went into the vac. And, it’s purple. Purple! I haven’t even begun to play with all the attachments yet but if they’re as easy to use as my Dyson DC-28 Animale was right out of the box, my spring cleaning is going to be a snap! The very first time I used it my carpeting and rugs looked plumped up as if I had gotten them shampooed. Did I mention it’s purple?

We love our pets and they add so much to our lives. Here is a friend of ours. His name is Max, he’s a one year old Standard Poodle, and he is on a road trip from Maine to all four corners of America. To read about his trip through the eyes of his owner Maureen, go to their blog. I’m of course biased, but I’m finding this travel blog very interesting as I’m learning about new dog-friendly places to take ours, good eats, and how to keep oneself company when on a solitary journey. The blog is called Two Lanes and it’s also on wordpress. Enjoy!
