I know this a more of a product review (move if need be) but I just wanted to let all of you know that dog hair is no longer a problem in my house! We have 2 black labs who shed a lot. We've had the Roomba pet series robot vacuum from for a couple of weeks now and I couldn't be more pleased so far. It does a great job getting around, in between, and under funiture, wires, you name it. It's pretty neat to see it work. It's quiet too (much, much quieter than a normal vacuum). We run it about 3x per week and are happy.
Anyway, for those sick of dog hair, it's something to look into for Christams. We'll see how well it holds up but I'm pleased with it so far.
