Yeah I turned it on and it didn't bother Molly. I vacuum a lot and will point the hose at her sometimes as a joke lol. So she's been conditioned I guess.

That's pretty good. It took Bella a few minutes to calm down, and she's very tolerant of different things being done to her. She actually likes having her ears rinsed out, and her teeth brushed.

For what it's worth.....

I just took a shower, and used it to dry my hair. I have your average men's haircut. It took about 90 seconds. LOL.

Don't laugh....I wanted to see what it felt like!

You'll probably figure this out, but the air velocity seems significantly higher with the crevice tool. After trying it on myself, I will probably remove the crevice tool around Bella's ears, and take extra care to hold her ears closed. The lack of multiple speeds is one of the drawbacks as compared to a dog dryer.

Haha! I don't know why but I pointed it at my face earlier. It wasn't too bad but I didn't have the crevice tool on. I don't know how I am going to stand that loud noise for 20 minutes though.

Try hearing protectors like you can wear to do the lawn!

Pet Buddy Pet Vacuum - As Seen on TV

This was one of those As seen on TV things from 2004 or 2005- I bought one, used it a few times on my Bridge boy who loved being vacuumed, then stored it and forgot about it. I need to use it again *if* it gets cold this winter!

Bella got dirty today, so I gave her a bath, so she looks good for her obedience school graduation tonight.

I decided to time it this time.

99% dry after 20 minutes. I dried her more thoroughly than I ever did with a hair dryer, and that used to take at least 30 minutes. For comparison sake, I could have stopped at 15 minutes, for equivalent dryness to hair dryer, but I wanted to see how long it takes to do a thorough job.

I used the crevice tool the entire time. I left the cotton balls in her ears from her bath.

I don't know how long a dog dryer takes. If anyone has one, I'd be interested to know.

Nairb, do the cotton balls in the ears prevent having to use the ear drops after the bath? Poor Zuca feels that bath time is torture time because after the bath come the ear drops and she HATES them.

I bought this yesterday but it's still sitting in the box. Both dogs are in desperate need of a bath and the Happy Hoodies came so I guess it's bath time

The cotton balls keep water out of her ears, as recommended by vet after infections in both ears. I actually use the square cotton pads.
