I first asked you about vacuums 7 1/2 years ago! Here is the post. Then I bought one, which I wrote about here. Well, I can't tell you exactly how long that vac lasted but I do know that we've had three or four more since then.They break, they don't work, blah, blah, blah. I can't remember all the companies.
I am 7 1/2 years older and and more tired. I hate hauling out the vacuum and dragging it around for hours. I am not an everyday vacuum-er. I like to do it once a week and be done.
I want a light vacuum.
I want a quiet one.
I want bags. I've tried the bagless kind and emptying them was a huge mess.
I want a canister. I can't lift the uprights.
I have a yellow Labrador retriever - the 365/24/7 shedder! As long as we are healthy, this is the only breed we ever want despite that one little problem! So, I need a really tough vacuum.
I am willing to spend the big bucks if all my criteria are met.
Many commenters on the earlier post recommended Dyson, but I've read negative things about that brand, too. I expect there are new models that have come on the market. I've been all over the internet and have some ideas, but I would really like it if you could tell me what you have (and love and hate).
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. And sorry to bother you yet again!
If I sound agitated, that's because I am. Yet another vac went kaput today.
