    If you took proper care of your dog, it wouldn`t be crapping in your house. If you weren`t too bloody lazy to sweep a freaking floor, your dumbass irobot wouldn`t be spreading messes around your house.

    Sure is a good thing my dogs don`t poo on the floor, and I`m not so lazy that I can`t pull out a vacuum for 5 minutes a day.

    I like the robot floor cleaner.
    If only there were a robot duster!

    That`s just... well hell - gross.

    My housekeepers come once every two weeks, but for in-between maintenance, I thought about buying a roomba as my new place is major hardwoods except for carpeting in the bedrooms... thank god, my dog doesn`t normally go on the floor. I would be more concerned about him attacking it while it goes zooming around - he`s extrodinarily territorial.

    @ CaptKangaroo - quit being a moron and so judgemental. *ALL* dogs will go on the floor if they are sick, or have emotional shocks. There are times that they just can`t hold it for some reason; this video isn`t necessarily the sign of a bad owner.

    If you use FML as if it were a word out loud, your irobot is required to poo smear your home. It`s in the manual.

    He might have a puppy, that takes insanely huge dumps.

    I have a roomba, I hate it, you have to keep your floor so fricking clean (no socks, loose wires, floor lamps) that you might as well have a bloody Dyson anyway for all the time you save.

    And it doesn`t like my 39 euro shagpile rug from IKEA. Refuses to drive onto it.

    Don`t get one people.

    I have two dogs, one of which is part chow. I also have a roomba and carpeted floors. The roomba does a decent job of picking up the chow`s hair between `real` vacuuming and only occasionally gets stuck on something.

    My other dog is also very territorial and tries to attack anything that makes noise (vacuum, steam cleaner, hair dryer etc.), but to my surprise she doesn`t pay any attention to the roomba for some reason.

    I also don`t let the roomba run when I`m not home just in case there is some problem. My dogs don`t mess in the house, but like was said earlier anything can happen with a sick animal.

    bacon_pie: Cats throw up hair balls, so this could happen to a cat owner as well.

    I have a roomba as well, it ran over wet cat food once. I had to use Q-tips to clean the thing. It still works great though. I`m glad I got it as is my wife.

    He acts like his world is coming to an end. People that can`t solve problems like this deserve to have things like this happen to them. Throw the rug away? lol....stupid reaction.
    He needs to start mopping his way into the house and more straight to the kitchen sink. This isn`t a good thing that happened but if he is using a Roomba then you know he doesn`t clean much and his house needed a good mopping.
