Driving Club Outing

On March 19th we attended our first outing with Whips & Wheels Driving Club. We took Sadie and Lucky to this event and had a great time. Information about the club can be found at Whips & Wheels Driving Club.

I think Sadie had a great time. She ran the course twice and got many complements on her physique. We all had a blast. We took the motor home so we had our own facilities, and a nice place to make our lunch. Andy, Karol, and Holly came with us and thanks to Karol, we won second place on the obstacle course.

Thank you Mr Dyson!

The search for a good vacuum cleaner is over. In 30 years I have owned no less than 15 vacuum cleaners. From the kind with vacuum cleaners to bag less wind tunnels. To the kind with fancy hepa filters and quick empty functions. All kinds of brands.

All with the same end result. Poor suction over time, clogging filters that were difficult and costly to replace, messy to empty or change bags. I remember one occasion where a bag burst as I was removing it. What fun that was. Not to mention that any hose that could clog, did. The need to resort to bent hangers to clear hoses led to all kinds of vacuum mayhem.

May I introduce my new best friend Jimmy.

Jimmy is so well designed. You can see everywhere he might clog, and better yet all those places open or pull out with a click of a button. We are also talking serious suction. Karol vacuumed yesterday with the old vacuum, and today I half filled the canister on the rug alone. Moving to wood floors you change to the bare floors setting and dust bunnies are history. I can snug up the front of the vacuum to the wall and it gets everything up to the edge. I have to say too that it was a bit disgusting after I finished vacuuming the bare floor. This thing has enough suction to pull up stuff from between the cracks where the floor boards have shrunk. My old vacuum definitely did not do that!!!

My machine of choice is the Dyson D33 Multifloor.

Sadie learns to get in a trailer

Practice makes perfect. Once we got the initial hop into the trailer she discovered the sweet feed waiting for her. We've been at it for a week now and have progressed to the discovery of snitching green grass when you get out for five minutes. So now I'm not stressed, which means she's not stressed AND we can attend out driving club functions whenever we can borrow a trailer!
