These are some old photos of my pet hoover, that I used to own in college. I never officially named it but considered calling it "Roover"...
I've never liked dogs. I find hoovers far more agreeable.
And even for those who do like dogs but find themselves too busy or living somewhere that doesn't allow pets, hoovers can serve as a more than adequate replacement.
At first, it may be hard to think of your hoover as more than a household appliance but this can be easily overcome by spending time with it. Start to treat your hoover like a dog and it will become to feel like one.
Hoovers make excellent companions. They can easily be taken on walks and make those long thoughtful days at the park a little less lonely.
There are numerous advantages in having a hoover as a pet.
Hoovers do not need to be house trained and never disobey your orders.
They clean up messes and never make them.
Hoovers never bark and when they do make annoying noises they can be easily switched off and plugged out.
Apart from the initial cost of purchase and any electricity it uses, there are very few expenses involved in owning a hoover.
Hoovers do not need constant attention like most pets do. They don't need to be fed or exercised regularly. They can be stored easily and compactly and do not need open spaces.
When taken on walks in the park hoovers never try to run away or chase pigeons.
They sit contently and obediently by your side.
Hoovers never urinate in public.
However there can also be disadvantages in having a hoover as a pet.
When walking a hoover it needs to pulled along a lot more than a dog.
Hoovers can behave in an unfriendly manner and are rarely as affectionate as dogs.
Playing 'fetch' with a hoover can be difficult and will quickly become tiresome.
The general public is not accustomed to the treatment of hoovers as pets. This can often lead to staring, name calling, laughter etc. when walking your hoover in public.
