Vacuuming with a Vacuum Terrorist

Hi, y'all.

I'm not back in full swing yet, as it's only Tuesday and I still have three more days of special parental duty, which, by the way, isn't limited to my three children, but tens (maybe a hundred) of other people's dear children (and where was I?)...Oh yes, and this afternoon I found out that a contractor would be over to my house (in short order) to give an estimate on some work needing to be done, which sent me into a panic because I hadn't vacuumed in over a week, and how could I possibly let anyone - including a sweaty contractor - into my pet hair-infested house??? So with only 15 minutes to spare, I hauled out the 20-lb (heavy) vacuum and got to work, only to be menaced by a vacuum terrorist.

Does anyone else have one of these? (A terrorist, not a vacuum.)

By the way, I do not vacuum without the floor attachment/roller head (whatever it's called) - as seen in the video - except when I need to get into those hard to reach dog hair-infested places. If I did this all the time, I'd never get up all the dog hair, now would I?


Okay, I'm off to collapse in the prone position. 'Til next time (sometime this week)...have a good night. :)


  1. Personally, I do not like vacuums. At all. I retreat to the furtherest corner of the house. Which come to think of it, I do when any housework appears to be imminent.

  2. How do you do that??
    Attacking the vaccum??
    As soon as I see it here... I run away as fast as I can!!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  3. Hehe... Bella's not quite a terrorist. She engages in peaceful civil disobedience instead, placing toys in front of the vacuum when I walk away.

  4. Rufus merely goes into another room. Nick is totally fascinated by the vacuum...he is convinced that it is some sort of misunderstood potential playmate that refuses to communicate with him in a meaningful manner.

  5. Rudy is definitely a terrorist and stealthily creeps behind the vac until WHAM he attacks. Jeffie lives in terror of the vac. Tucker and Lucy could care less and very slowly (and with great disdain) move out of the way.

  6. Have you ever seen video of people who vacuum the loose fur right off their dogs? Don't you wonder how they ever taught that? I've never known a dog that would stand for it.

  7. Everyone - JF hates the vacuum and was hiding in another room. :)

    @Pup Fan - Bella is a smart doggie placing toys in the way! Har har!

    @Builder Mama - I think Dewi used to think the vacuum was a playmate. He wasn't always so determined to "kill" it. :)

    @Talking Dogs - You have the whole gamut! At least you only have one vacuum killer, and not four!

    @Pamela - I have seen those dogs AND cats who tolerate being vacuumed, and I have wondered how they do it. Maybe they filled the nozzle with cheeze whiz or Oscar Mayer wieners at first??? :)

  8. My sweet Spanky, who crossed that rainbow bridge years ago, had no fear of the vac. I'd groom him with comb in one hand and vac nozzle in the other! It was absolutely, incredibly convenient! :-D
