The Vacuum I've Been Waiting My Whole Life For

I'm sold. My friend Sandy was raving about her vacuum cleaner, a Dyson Animal. I've seen the commercials for Dyson on tv and wondered if they really work as well as they claim they do. When we went to Sandy's house for Book Club, she had used her Dyson and there was not one strand of cat hair anywhere to be seen in her house--and she has 2 cats.

The Animal is designed specifically for animal hair. We have had a huge problem in our bedroom because the idiot previous owners installed this dark blue carpet that collected and held dog hair, and showed every strand. I tried our Hoover (piece of shit, and it wasn't cheap either), our other vacuum (brand escapes me now), and our non-electric carpet sweeper that believe it or not, did far better than the other two and was only like $25.

Based on Sandy's rave review and the condition of her house, we decided to get one. Yes, they're very expensive, but if it actually picks up the dog hair, I'm all for it. It came in the mail today and...WOW! Kevin just vacuumed the bedroom (with the horrible carpet) and it actually picked up all of the hair! It's the vacuum I've been waiting my whole life for.

I've been wanting one of those for about a year. Yes, they are that damn amazing! In my speech class over the summer, a guy gave his persuasive speech on 'why you should buy a Dyson' because he was the vacuum cleaner salesman at Sears. We were all kind of laughing, until he gave a demo and then I just sat there with my jaw hanging open. I'm so jealous of your new toy.
