You love Rover, but hate the way his fur gets onto everything, including your new charcoal grey sofa (BTW, good choice - grey is our favourite new neutral). Cope humanely with the situation by using Dyson’s latest hand-held vacuum, the DC Animal 16, which is specifically designed to remove animal fur from upholstery. It’s not only got super-hero strength suction, it’s also very pretty to look at, with a metallic champagne sheen. Available at Sears, The Bay, Future Shop and www.dyson.com
for about $230. (Yes, dear, that is a lot of money, but I'm increasingly of the opinion that you really do get what you pay for.) I never thought I’d be asking for a vaccum cleaner for Christmas, but I’ve got to admit, after living for 11 years with a Siberian Husky, I’d be delighted to find the DC Animal 16 under the tree. Please, Santa? The dog and I have been arf-fully good this year.
