I too can have any vacuum I want , kirby's, rainbows, filter queens, Electrolux, AEG you name it its on our floor but I have 3 dysons at home.
I have 11 cats 3 dogs 10 bunny rabits 2 hamsters , two sons aged 6 and 8 and two parents that all live with us Its a big full house
We now have a dc15 a dc25 and a dc05 motor head .
I love them all and all have there purpose.
I also have a dc05 standard in the work shop and a dc07 usa model for the shop
For a while we had a dc14 lavender model but I hated the colour machine was great though.
