    Got an e-mail from woot and ended up buying a

    Dyson DC28 Animal Upright Vacuum for $300, about half of what Dyson itself advertises as it's retail price.

    Any of you ever own one of those?.... our Lilly, (Golden Retriever.. has become a full time inside the house dog, against my better wishes so I wanted something that could really clean)

    I had a vacuum thread a while back when I was looking for one and lots of people said they love their Dysons. WAY out of my budget though, even at half price. Plus I only have 2 small rooms with carpet, so I just needed something more basic. I ended up getting a Bissell Smartclean Rewind, which I love. It's not as lightweight as I was hoping for but it works great! I love the one touch cord rewind too. For some reason winding up a cord was really annoying for me. [​IMG]

    I had a boyfriend once, a BOYFRIEND mind you, not even a husband, who gave me an iron and ironing board for my birthday. I was absolutely dumbfounded. [​IMG]

    We got a used Dyson and totally love it. We use it less because we moved into a house with hardwood floors, but it is still great for upholstery and area rugs. We have a cat and people who are usually allergic remark that they don't have issues in our house.

    I've had a Dirt Devil Purpose for Pets -- Wal Mart, I think $80 -- for a few years now. What can I say, it's an $80 vacuum, you hand wind the cord and hold it up while vacuuming -- but it does a better job on pet hair than any other I've ever had, most in the $300 price range. If $300 is out of someone's price range, I'd recommend it.
