'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Any recent thoughts on vacuums? Those with Dysons still happy with them?

We love our Dyson vacuums. We have the Dyson Ball Animal Vacuum, as well as the cordless V6 trigger and V6 motorhead vacuums. There are no bags to change. You just have to clean out the reusable filter. It picks up all of the cat & dog hair.

I doubted the ability of my Dyson V7 when it seemed so light and slim.  I was wrong.  It works well.


Then that happened.

We're Miele users, but the Dysons do look appealing.

I had a Miele vacuum before I bought the Dyson a few years ago and that was an excellent vacuum as well. You can't go wrong with either brand. I guess it depends on whether you want to keep changing bags, or just cleaning the reusable filter. The bags do last a while.

I ended up with a Dyson and I’m incredibly pleased. Given that I have multiple cats, I’m not sure why I waited so long.
