Well I am happy to report that I went to Walmart today and got the Dirt Devil one for pets (it has a golden puppy on the box). Anxious to get home to use it, as soon as I walked into the door I opened the box. LOL Needless to say, I've never seen so much crap sucked into a vacuum canister in one vacuum session.
I told my roommate about my new purchase and she vacuumed her part of the house, now wants to do her car with it!!
Its my vacuum darnit... go get your own.... Well that's what went through my mind anyway. Never thought i'd ever be possessive of a vacuum LOL
