"Boston Terror" Chronicles: North vs. the Dyson DC16 Animal

"Boston Terror" Chronicles: North vs. the Dyson DC16 Animal

Hooray! I've started a new group on TeamSugar for my little "Boston Terror!" North and I are going to do the legpaw work and test out products to provide our full reviews (and proof!) when we're done. Wanna know if that plushie will last for your tough chewer? Curious how long it takes a pup to empty a frozen Kong? If you have a tip or question, post it here — I'll look for the product and we'll put it to the test!

I hinted in my February Must Haves that we have recently welcomed a new animal into our home – the Dyson DC16 Animal. North hates the vacuum so I was curious to see how this weapon would fare in his eye and ear shot . . . and how it would perform, of course!For good measure, I emptied my hairbrush and his hairbrush and dumped out my dingiest day-to-day purse. I crumbled up a snack (yum, crackers!), pulled some feathers from my pillow, and cleaned out my fabric shaver, too! Then, even though North is not allowed up on the couch, I placed him up there and tried to rub him around (note: if trying at home, dog will likely hate this or think it is a new game). Yeah, just so you don't think my couch is normally in that state. Curious to see how the Dyson held up in my home,

Wow! It's straight off the West Elm showroom floor! After staring at the results, I immediately thought what else can I possibly clean?! Oooh, North's brown Pixie Stripe Snuggle Bed!Because it's super plush on the inside (and I like the striped pattern better), I always let North snuggle on that side. But, I flipped it around and ick! My guy's been resting in filth!Wow, look at all the dust, dirt, and hair it quickly and easily picked up! My vacuum-hating dog didn't appear to be that fazed by this new beast – he was more interested in the cracker crumbs . . . and getting his bed back. Now if only it wasn't so late at night, I'd head out to my garage to clean out North's carseat, too!
