    DefaultAm I horrible...I vacuumed my dog.

    ???

    I took Mickey out on the deck to groom off some of his shedding coat. After a half an hour, and still no end in sight, I needed a break. I had to vacuum the diningroom anyway, sooo....

    Mickey seemed to love it, he was doing circles and going wild! Normally he's terrified of the thing, but I guess he got tired of the slicker brush too. Am I a horrible for taking a very lazy way out of his daily brushing? (BTW, I used the circular brush attachment thingie, so it didn't pull his hair or suck his skin in...I'm not suicidal! ;D )
    WooT!<br /><br /><br />He made it too! <br />

    Bess tolerated or maybe even liked it. Puff crawls under the bed if I try.

    No you're not horrible. People vacuum their horses and cattle for show all the time. Why not dogs? If he tolerates it, I say go for it. It's going to get vacuumed up anyway...might as well skip a step if you can!

    Oh good, I don't feel so bad then. I was surprised that he was happy to have it done, he even did a butt-tuck. I suspected that he was no fan of the slicker, and I've tried almost everything else, so if he continues to tolerate this I'll stick with it.

    We have a portable dog wash here in town. Guy pulls a trailer rigged with water, water heater, generator, dog washing station, etc.. He comes right to you house to wash the dogs. He has a gentle vacuum that he uses. He says he has done over 1,000 dogs and never been bit.

    Some times I vacuum the dogs. But most the time I just use the zoom groom! I use the zoom groom on the cats too... The cats dont care for the vacuum :

    I wish I could vacuum Billie. Maybe if we had a quieter vacuum...

    Ours loves to be vacuumed. As soon as she hears the vacuum go on she's there in a flash begging for a turn. We actually bought a special doggy attachment/brush for our vacuum.
