Meet Bobby! Darren, Lisa and Bobby all live across the pond in England! They have been Petzi users from the very beginning and we are so thrilled to have such tried and true PetziFamily members.
Bobby, a mostly Jack Russell Terrier mix, is sweet and calm. At four and a half years old, he is a darling little cuddler and won’t resist an opportunity to enjoy a lap, being held, or taking a nap.
He came to Lisa and Darren from the pet store. Bobby would see Lisa pop in every so often, and after laying eyes on him the first time she just couldn’t stop thinking about him. Lisa was the one who gave Bobby his name and one day while she was stopping by again just to take a peek at the pup, the shop assistant told her “Someone has named him Bobby!” When she realized how her name for the little guy had spread she took it as providence and brought Bobby to his destined home. Darren learned he was a puppy dad with a texted picture while he was at work!
At first, it was difficult for Lisa and Darren because it was almost like having a newborn child; he would wake them three times a night! But now Darren says- “We absolutely would not be without him; we do not have children… so he is spoiled with different treats, gadgets… and dare I mention it, outfits!”
Having Bobby in their lives keeps Lisa and Darren energized and exercised. Having a Petzi Treat Cam was a perfect addition to their home, allowing them to make sure he is safe and happy while they are away. It took some time for Bobby to get used to the camera. Old models didn’t allow for volume control and the sound the treat cam makes when it came on was pretty scary to Bobby. Now that there is a feature to manually adjust the volume of the ding, or mute it entirely, Bobby doesn’t mind the welcome tone so much anymore. Now he gets excited for the incoming treats and Darren likes to manually use the sound to play with Bobby. Darren shares, “Sometimes when I am in the house, Bobby will start to nudge the Petzi Treat Cam… I then can’t resist but to connect with my smartphone and drop a treat for him!”
Thanks to Darren, Lisa, and most of all- to Bobby, for sticking with us through our growing pains!
We love having your family part of our PetziFamily!
