Are you shocked? No, it is an animal, but it is the Dyson animal vacuum. My husband went out and got it after the 10th vacuum died on us. We love it, it worked wonders on our carpets. As you all know with the 2 sheepies and 4 long haired cats, it can get a little hairy in this house. LOL It comes with a 2 year guarantee and then we put an extra 4 years on it. At least for the next 6 years our carpets will be clean. The only down side is I get to hear my husband talk like the man from the commercial. Stormi and co.
