    DefaultWhat do you think they think the vacuum is?

    Boo didn't used to even look at the vacuum. I would just vacuum around him while he slept on the floor. When he finally decided to investigate, I had the hose going to clean the curtains. He sniffed a little too close and got his nose sucked in. Yesterday, I had the hose going again and he had his paws down with his butt up in the air, trying to play with it! He would bounce around, bark, then butt tuck and run. He had me doubled over on the floor laughing. It was like he thought I was playing with someone else and wanted to join in the "fun." :
    I think it would be funny to know what your dogs do when you get out the vacuum.

    Man I wish Billie thought the vacuum was a toy. She is convinced it is the devil incarnate.

    I'd like to know why she thinks it is evil and must die. Maybe she and Boo could have a talk. He could tell her how much fun the vacuum is and convince her that it's not going to eat her...

    Abby and Yeller both think it is a personal grooming appliance, that should not be used on anything but their luxurious fur. I have to lock them both outside to vaccuum, as they both get in my way trying to get hosed.

    all three of my dogs don't think much of anything about our vacuum cleaners (i have several). they don't react to it at all whether it is in use or not. they move out of the way when i'm pushing the vacuum about, but other than that, nothing.

    The cats and Peanut scatter when the vacuum comes out. Everyone except Baloo. He follows me around, not coming too close, but not letting me get too far away, either. It's like he's supervising....

    The hairdryer is another story. :

    I blowdry my hair upside down (so as to increase volume.... ladies, you know what I mean ) Anyhoo, Baloo comes galloping up the stairs as soon as he hears the blowdryer turn on. Because I'm bent over, I'm right at his level. :P

    So my blowdrying sessions have now become more about trying to juggle pushing him away with being able to use the right "technique" in order to style my hair how I like it.

    He just LOVES sticking his face in the flow of hot air, and then sneezing as powerfully as he can muster, all over my just washed hair. > *sigh*

    You know, now that I'm not in the situation, it's actually kind of funny.

    LOL! Yes Soleil too thinks it's a doggy spa accessory he's waiting patiently for me to be done, and then when he thinks I'm done he come over doing this wiggly dance so that he can get vacuumed ;D

    Wesley thinks the vacuum is an evil robot intent on utter world domination, from which he must save us continually.
