Winston has always hated the vacuum. Even when it's quietly standing in the corner, he'll walk by and nudge it, or mouth it, trying to make it scream.

Pan is my "helper" around here.

If I had a quarter for every time I've said to Rocky, "I know you think that you're helping, but..".

Matt. Rocky's a Dog.
If she looked any happier while I vaccumed her, she'd start drooling. Kate

Franklin as well. Sometimes I'd just like to vacuum the house (well, not really, but the Dyson makes it much easier), but he really does love a little massage!

Today, one of my dogs really impressed me. Not in agility, no competition of any sort, but doing housework. Yep, ... feet, then looked at me, slightly cocking her head as if to say 'Well, what do ya think about that?'

aaww, a girl who knows her domestic duty.

Now, if i can only convince my boys that bra's aren't tug toys, maybe i would be willing to let them carry the laundry.

Maybe it's just a FCR thang.

She trotted right up to me and dropped it at my feet, then looked at me, slightly cocking her head as if to say 'Well, what do ya think about that?'

Sadie trotted into the basement and dropped a dead starling at my feet with that same look on her face a couple weeks ago.

Then she looked really dissappointed when I took it away and threw it in the trash.
Maybe not quite the same as carrying laundry for you...

Definitely a different value system. Winston looks at us like we're nuts for throwing Perfectly Good Stuff in the garbage.

When Cala was about 6 months old we went for a walk in my favorite offleash area, reclaimed prairie with trails cut through, very primitive. So I'm walking along, and she goes dashing off into the brush. Rustle, rustle, rustle. Next thing I know, she's flying back onto the trial, with a bra in her mouth. She was SO proud of that bra. And of course I couldn't get it away from her, and of course I proceeded to see lots and lots of people. I kept saying, "no, it's NOT mine!"
Storm's just the opposite: She is, generally, a worrier, but ... looked any happier while I vaccumed her, she'd start drooling.

Yep, my guys are underfoot. The vacuum doesn't bother them at all. I used to purposely take it out while they ate as babies, though. I see those "Funniest Home Videos" of dogs attacking the vacuum & thought to myself, "Now, why is that funny?" That would drive me crazy! Maybe 'cuz w/ two long-haired dogs, and two cats, I vacuum at least twice a week & it would just be such a hassle!
Ah, if only Dylan felt that way about being vacuumed herself! She's a long-haired GSD, and it would surely simplify my life if she'd stand still for a daily vacuuming.

Ha! They enjoy this as well. Especially Bodhi when I use it on his rump, top of the base of his tail. He loves it. Weird little bugger. Shelly & The Boys
