I WISH Rookie would run off and hide when I took out the vacuum. He likes to be vacuumed and he's pretty impatient about it. So he follows me around and gets under foot. I often end up sending him to his bed just so I can finish.
Thanks! I tried to vacuum Maximus once and ended up having to clean up a pee pee mess instead... I didn't even get close enough to touch him with the hose! (this was maybe 2 years ago! he was a tiny pup!)
None here are afraid of the vacuum...my cairn terrier, Seamus, likes to sneak around (he thinks he's being sneaky) and pounce on it once...Phoebe then barks at him, correcting him for attacking the vacuum cleaner...and my other cairn, Gracie, just acts annoyed when I make her move so I can vacuum where she's napping. As soon as I'm done vacuuming, Phoebe always has to scratch her back on the burgundy area rug..I didn't have a golden when I chose burgundy..everyday is vacuum day, sometimes two or three times.
