My pug sheds enough to build 10 extra pugs a week solely from her hair. My old vacuum is not up for the job (except for chasing her around....still good for that). I desperately need a new vacuum—for no more than $150 if possible, maybe $200—but I don't know which is best. My dad is looking on the Consumer Reports site for me, but are there any pet owners out there who love their vacuum? I've never had a steam one, but would consider that too. Mostly I don't want to live in an entirely beige house for the rest of my life to hide the hair.
