Well, right off the bat, I must confess that I do like wine, and dogs.
Vacuums, however, not so much. In fact, my DH was nice enough recently to search for a self-propelled one.
Apparently he didn't find one worth purchasing, not sure why. So, instead I made this purchase.
The Shark Navigator Lift-Away Professional NV356E.
Amazon must have had a special on it for a day or so, because it was $119 when I bought it. I see that it its currently $179.99. Can't vouch for it's effectiveness yet, as it is still in pieces on top of the dining room table.
However, it did receive good reviews. Apparently lots of Amazon buyers don't hate vacuums, or al least not this one. I think I was swayed by it's professional-ness, and the Lift-away feature. What that means, I do not know. I am mostly a pretend house cleaner. more
I do have quite a bit of experience with vacuum purchasing, primarily because we used to own a Samoyed, or mostly he owned us. This is not him (no pics handy) butt an example to show how much fur those things have.
When people say Samoyeds blow their coat twice a year, they aren't kidding. We used to need a new vacuum about every other year.
He was not the smartest dog, butt he did have a jolly sense of humor. RIP Smoochie.
