In other news of the past week, I finally bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner. I've had my eye on the Animal Ball for a while now. They were on sale at Target for $439 so I decided to snag one. So far, I've used it on carpet, tile and on the couch. I'm pretty pleased with the results and love seeing the canister fill up with puggie hair. If the dog didn't bark at the dang thing so much I'd try to vacuum him directly to get the hair straight from the source!
