mr. dyson you are a genius and a lifesaver. as you can probably imagine with 14 dogs there is a lot to suck up, much of it requiring a vacuum. historically we would need to replace our carpet vacs at least every 6 months and that was with using a shop-vac to do our hardwood floors. these were not bargain bin vacuums either – these were several hundred dollar models touting extreme sucking power. i always believed them at first and they seemed to be vacuums of their word and then time...

we put one of the bday pillows out yesterday afternoon and watson’s reaction was perplexing at best. it wasn’t clear if he was terrified of the pillow, protecting the pillow from everyone else, or trying to protect everyone else from the pillow - suffice to say there was a lot of barking. it’s all a mute point as fletcher took care of the evil pillow, most assuredly at the behest of watson… anyone interested in a slightly used pillow...
