In my animal house, the vacuum cleaners are esteemed and well-cared-for members of the furry family. Life as I and my canine (and feline) cohorts know it simply wouldn’t be possible without the machines that don’t lose suction — especially on days when it’s too cold outdoors for a dog brushing session.
I heart Dyson, and I’m not ashamed to admit this. (EIC’s Note: For the record, this is *not* a sponsored post. Dyson does advertise with us from time to time, but we are also genuinely fans of their products and use them in our homes. I know I do.)
As a Taurean and astrology aficionado, I feel a special affinity for this brand, probably since its creator, James Dyson, is himself a Taurus — and his brilliant invention was inspired by his own frustration with shedded dog hairs, and the desire to simplify life for himself and his fellow pet lovers. (That’s so Taurus!)
This iconic brand has managed to make itself so at home in the popular culture that I’ve heard of numerous cases of dogs being named Dyson, in homage to their voracious appetites that, presumably, also never lose suction.
The company’s newest, most compact model is the Dyson DC44 Animal portable vac with “Tangle Free Turbine.” It’s a very helpful and handy appliance, and makes a thoughtful and snazzy holiday gift for the very special dog lover on your list.
And through the end of today, Cyber Monday, November 26, Dyson offers a discount of 25 percent off this and all other machines — you heard right, ALL of them — online and in-store. Off you go!
