This was our housewarming gift from my folks. We have a short-haired domestic cat and a fluffy she-beast of a Malamute/Husky.
These are testimonial pictures. That's about a month's worth of fur and dust (but not really).
You see... the vacuum has a brush I wasn't aware had to be turned on to suck the hair out of the carpet. So even though I vacuumed at least twice a week, I wasn't seeing the results I wanted. Lo and behold, Buzz figured out how to use it properly and we got that bucket of yuck out of our carpet. And that's just the downstairs.
