Default Your Dog's Opinion of the Vacuum?

What does your dog think of the vacuum? A toy? A monster? Some random object that makes loud noises?

I know some dogs that are scared of vacuums, but Crystal thinks it is a toy! She play bows at it and has zoomies whenever the vacuum comes out, and tries to get it to chase her.

I have the dog brush attachment for my Dyson, Rig LOVES the vacuum. Now if I could only figure out a way to get him to push the darned thing.

As far as Matrix is concerned, vacuum = monster!

Pip and Maisy hate it.

Squash seems to think it is the most amazing toy that was ever invented in the whole history of the world. If he's around, he follows me around trying to grab it and run away with it. If he's crated, he does his crazy PLAY NAO PLAY PLAY NAO bark.

Usually I just put him outside.

The girls mostly ignore it but will move out of the way. Boone is annoying and lays right in front of it.

My pit bulls can be slammed by it and they just yawn. My malinois ignore but avoid it usually.

Surprisingly, Milo is afraid of it, but prefers to hide rather than try to kill it (which is what he does to my hair dryer).

Jackson is indifferent to it. If it comes close to him, he'll move away. But if he's on the couch or whatnot, and we're vacumming on the floor near him, he'll just stay put. So he's neither here nor there. But he doesn't want to be terribly close to it.

Trent's reaction's the same as Jackson's. Except, for some odd reason, he'll take it upon himself to follow me around when I'm vacuuming, but in an extremely reluctant manner. For example - if I'm vacuuming my room and he's downstairs, he'll actually come upstairs to me, stalk past the vacuum, jump on my bed, and lie down with a big sigh.

I think he's slightly worried that I will trip and fall and die and the vacuum will swallow me forever.

Elsie likes to 'fight' it. It's hilarious.
