When Pierre first came to live with us, he was terrified of the vacuum cleaner. He would run around and bark at it, but never get very close. My daughter used to put him in his crate whenever she vacuumed, because he would get so upset. Pierre doesn’t shed very much, but Bentley is a major league shedder. For that reason, we vacuum almost every other day. I decided that Pierre was just going to have to get used to it. I told him that I have never sucked up a dog before and that he was safe. Over time, he has gotten a little braver. The last few weeks though, he has decided it was his job to take down the sucking monster. He would inch closer to it and try to bite it, and then race away. I think it is hilarious! The other day, I was using the hose and brush attachment to vacuum the bathroom. He thought this was his prime opportunity to kill the machine. I was startled when he leaped out of nowhere to attack. Luckily, I had my phone in my pocket and was able to video his attempt. Watch the few seconds of video below. Notice that he de-brushes the vacuum vermin!
