We're going to hardwood upstairs for a multitude of reasons, dog hair being one of them, allergies being another. However, I did an excellent job matching the dog's fur to the carpet b/c I am always amazed by how much fur my vacuum picks up from my clean-looking carpet. Although I loathe (and am just as grossed out as I thought I'd be) the bagless thing. Gross, gross, gross. I get the satisfaction of seeing what you picked up. I do. But I inevitably have to pull that tumbleweed of dust and fur out w/my hands. Blech. I prefer bags.

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

If you favor chemicals du jour, bon appetite! I really prefer whole foods and being able to pronounce what is going into my body...

Yeah, the bagless vacuum took me a bit of a learning curve to get used to.  The first time I ever emptied one, I held it over the garbage can and looked straight down while I dumped it.  The ensuing mushroom cloud of dust that swarmed over me, almost sent me to the ER with the resulting asthma attack.  I had enough presence of mind to strip down and take a quick shower, starting with standing with my face pointed at the shower head full on with my eyes wide open to rinse off the dust. I even brought the inhaler into the shower with me.

From then on, I get a new garbage bag (a 4 gallon bag is just the right size), open it, put the  canister in, close up the bag with my hand in there (just close the bag around my wrist).  And dump.  And then remove the canister and wash the heck out of my hand before I forget where its been and wipe my eyes.

Yeah, the older the animals get the worse it gets. He was worth it though but I am done with pets (except for the hamster we have which is pretty much little or no work and she is cute lol)

Yeah I have the bag less and can just pour it out but we haven't had a dog in years so it is not too bad anymore.

Yeah RG it is not the healthiest of desserts, even though it DOES have bananas in it lol. It is so good though on a hot day and I am always threatened that I won't be allowed in if I don't bring it. Lol. Not sure what I am going to do as I have invites to Bbqls already starting next month lol

My dog is black so you can imagine the shedding, Ugh. DH changes the bags for me but what annoys him even more is the arm/hammer fresh powder I sprinkle on the carpet before I vacuum.
