Our readers know we are great task masters on the Hu-Dad in the study, but did you know we were great multitaskers?

Yes, the Hu-Dad is at his desk working hard. We’ve made sure by checking in for ear rubs and chest scratches. He says we’re a big help. But we also monitor work outside his study doors as part of our multitasking. In this case, we’re watching the robovac to keep it out of the office. That thing just sneaks up on you sometimes.

    How long has the robovac lasted? We go thru at least one vacuum a year, and we only have one mass-shedder!

      We have two – one for the bedroom floor and one for living floor. The bedroom floor is about a year and a half old. The living floor is a half year. No telling how long they will last, but the humans love them.
