This super relaxed puppy proves why go for walkies when you can ride a Roomba around the house instead.


Adorable Umi the Golden Retriever certainly knows how to chill as she zoomed around her home in Lisbon, Portugal, on June 30.

Completely oblivious to the hoovers incessant humming, the 34-day-old pooch happily lay her whole body across the moving machine.

Umi even managed to remain nonplussed as the Roomba made a beeline for walls, barely moving her head back from impending faceplants.

Owner Paula Tavares said: “Umi could not have been more relaxed riding around on the Roomba.

“She had this look on her face that she really did not want to be disturbed.

“Before this, Umi had already tried a few times to catch up with the hoover so she was clearly content that she’d managed to hitch a ride.

“At first I was a little bit scared but then I realised it wasn’t dangerous.

“After this her mum Mar wanted to try too, but I won’t let her because she is too heavy and might break it.”
