A Dog and a Robot

There’s much more serious stuff going on in the world, but here’s a fun little distraction from everything sad and important. I finally bought a robot vacuum, and let me tell you, it is the most amazing thing ever. I can’t even believe that a tiny machine can be so intelligent and so helpful. I literally feel like I have a new friend whose support is invaluable.

Holly, however, is unimpressed. She was curious about the foreign entity roaming around the house at first, then she settled for something between indifference and unease. She’s not quite scared (unlike the real vacuum cleaner which she abhors), but would rather not cross paths with this machine. I guess she’ll never be one of those dogs riding around on a Roomba, but that’s ok. I was hoping she might climb aboard, but in the end, this is mostly something I bought for me.
