We love our pets, but boy, can they make a mess! Your pup's dirty paw prints, your cat's constantly shedding coat, or the crumbs that surround their bowl at all times can all add up to a headache when it comes to keeping your house clean. Being a pet owner is a dirty (yet joyful!) job.
You could use a little help, So instead of whipping out a vacuum every time you find a clump of fur under the table, outsource the work to a friendly little helper — namely, the OKP Robot Vacuum Cleaner, which is on massive sale right now. It's just $120, down from $400 — that's 70% off! This little blue robot does all the dirty work for you, so you can spend more time with your pets and less time cleaning up after them.
Even better, you can program the vac remotely by using the OKP app. It's compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant, so just tell your smart home system to turn on your little robot, and it'll whizz off in search of a mess to clean.
Amazon will give you free shipping on this item. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — from access to new movies to two-day shipping on many items. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.
The vac is equipped to handle both wood and carpet flooring, and has four modes to make fast work of dirt, debris, fur and more.

It'll run for up to 100 minutes (on low suction mode) before automatically returning to its charging base to juice up.
"All I can say is WOW," writes one pet owner. "With several dogs in my house, I think this will be a godsend. As soon as I received it, I put it together and let it go. I just swept, for the third time, and it picked up hair from under my coffee table, along the walls, and the edge of my furniture! So far, I LOVE it!"
Another added: "This vacuum is amazing!!! I will never sweep my floors again...Now, we are by no means dirty people, but this really grossed me out to know that our floors were so nasty and hair-covered. The app makes it easy to control — in fact, I’m at work right now while the vacuum is doing my house cleaning at home. Love love love it! Especially if you have pets, this thing is definitely worth it!"
"I wasn't expecting that it would be so good," added a third. "I have dogs, two of them shed a lot which drives me crazy but this vacuum keeps my floor clean. I don't see hair anywhere, it goes under the furniture and everywhere with no problem."
You don't need to be a pet owner to get the most out of this vac, either:
"I am so in love with this little gadget!" writes a happy shopper."It works amazingly to keep my floors spotless. I let her run until; the battery is dead then she recharges herself and is ready for more cleaning! I haven't tried the app, the remote control works perfectly!"
In short: "This robot vacuum is a life changer! I can’t believe I waited this long to buy it! I absolutely love it — it's amazing!"
Rapid population growth and the large influx of tourists are behind the increase in Kelowna's crime rate, says the city's top cop, after Statistics Canada reported a huge jump in the city's crime rate over the past year. "There are all sorts of tourists that arrive in our Central Okanagan area to experience this incredible place — you see a drive in police-related incidents corresponding with those tourism numbers and those daily population numbers," said Kelowna RCMP Supt. Kara Triance. Accordi

Gasoline and diesel prices fell by nine cents and six cents per litre, respectively, as part of a weekly price adjustment on Friday. At 12:01 a.m. Saturday, those prices fell another 10 and seven cents per litre, respectively, because of "significant shifts in the market prices of gasoline and diesel oil," according to the Nova Scotia Utility and Review Board.

There are at least two millionaires in Toronto who don't know it yet. The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) says no one has claimed a $55 million Lotto Max prize, adding the ticket was sold somewhere in Toronto. The jackpot winning ticket was drawn on Friday, with no claimants. Another ticket, drawn June 28, with a jackpot prize of $70 million has also not been claimed, OLG says. That ticket was also sold in Toronto. Claimants have one year from the draw date to claim their prize. Pla
Following the death of his mother, Vancouver filmmaker Manny Mahal realized he knew precious little about his father, particularly his life in India before he moved to Canada. He decided the best way to learn about his dad was by doing what he knew best — making a film. For My Father, which is available on CBC Gem as part of the Absolutely Canadian series, is the result of Mahal's journey to bridge the cultural gap between himself and his father. Growing up, Mahal said he was very close to his m
A four-time Gold Cup & Saucer winner ended up in the hospital this weekend following a scary harness racing crash at Charlottetown's Red Shores Race Track & Casino. New Brunswick native Gilles Barrieau, driving Island Beach Boy, was thrown backwards while he was fending off a late challenge in the 12th race of Saturday's card. He was then run over by the horse that was right behind him. "[Island Beach Boy] was sent to the front, and as they reached the 3/4 pole near the end of the race, there wa
HAPPY CAMP, Calif. — A wildfire burning in a remote area just south of the Oregon border appears to have caused the deaths of tens of thousands of Klamath River fish, the Karuk Tribe said Saturday. The tribe said in a statement that the dead fish of all species were found Friday near Happy Camp, California, along the main stem of the Klamath River. Tribal fisheries biologists believe a flash flood caused by heavy rains over the burn area caused a massive debris flow that entered the river at or
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden tested negative for COVID-19 on Saturday but will continue to isolate at the White House until a second negative test, his doctor said. Dr. Kevin O'Connor wrote in his latest daily update that the president, “in an abundance of caution,” will abide by the "strict isolation measures” in place since his “rebound” infection was detected July 30, pending a follow-up negative result. Biden, 79, came down with the virus a second time three days after he had emerge
LEEDS, England (AP) — American midfielder Brenden Aaronson helped Leeds open the English Premier League with a 2-1 comeback win over Wolverhampton on Saturday. Aaronson, making his debut for Leeds after joining Jesse Marsch's team this offseason, looked poised to convert a cross from Patrick Bamford in the 74th minute after a run into the area, forcing defender Rayan Ait-Nouri to stick out a foot for an attempted clearance that ended up in his own net. The own goal completed a turnaround for Lee
A sculptor has been working in the intense summer heat to restore a statue in Summerside, P.E.I., that's withstood the elements for 100 years. The monument honouring 220 soldiers from Prince County who died in the First World War has been in the Veteran's Memorial Park just behind Summerside city hall since 1922. To commemorate the statue's 100th anniversary, the city has commissioned sculptor Brett Davis to freshen it up. Davis was in charge of the restoration of the Charlottetown cenotaph 20 y
LONDON (AP) — Tottenham recovered quickly from going a goal down and routed Southampton 4-1 in their English Premier League opener Saturday to show the team's new strength in depth. Attacking duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min failed to get on the scoresheet, but it was fellow forward Dejan Kulusevski who orchestrated the comeback. The Sweden international set up the equalizer for Ryan Sessegnon before he slotted the fourth goal himself after the break, following an Eric Dier header and Mohammed S
LONDON (AP) — While Liverpool made a stuttering start to the English Premier League, Tottenham showed it might be ready to take another step forward under Antonio Conte. Liverpool had to come from behind twice to salvage a 2-2 draw at promoted Fulham on Saturday, largely thanks to new signing Darwin Nunez, after a performance that Jurgen Klopp conceded was well short of the team’s standards. Tottenham also conceded an early goal but came roaring back to earn a 4-1 victory at home against Southam
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The administration of President Joe Biden on Saturday condemned Indiana's new ban on abortions, calling it another extreme attempt by Republicans to trample women's rights. Indiana on Friday became the first state in the nation to approve such legislation since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a 1973 landmark case that had protected the right to abortion nationwide. “The Indiana Legislature took a devastating step as a result of the Supreme Court’s extreme decision to overtu
LONDON (AP) — Erik ten Hag pleaded for time after starting his Manchester United reign with a disappointing loss. Erling Haaland didn't need much time at all to show what kind of impact he will have at Manchester City. The two biggest offseason arrivals in Manchester had starkly different starts to the Premier League season on Sunday. Ten Hag looked grim-faced on the sideline as the Dutch coach watched United slump to a 2-1 loss to Brighton at Old Trafford, with his side being outplayed in the f
