2020 was an unprecedented year for all of us. In the US, our medical system was stretched to its limit during the raging pandemic. It was a year that tested courage, grit, and heart. Luckily for us, the fighters on the frontlines of the battle with COVID-19 had all three. Our medical workers worked around the clock to save lives.

Since our medical heroes were away from home so much, we decided to give out Furbo dog cameras to medical workers who felt the pain of being away from their pups. It turns out the pups were feeling it too: Ashley, a certified physician assistant, noticed her dog’s anxiety had heightened with her extended absence, resulting in some accidents. But after Furbo’s arrival, she said, “he has made a complete 180 and has no problems making it throughout the day.”
Other medical workers loved the emotional relief of being able to check on their dogs even during long, grueling nights. Jasmine (ICU nurse) was working night shifts, and the ability to check on her handsome pup at home gave her a bit of respite. “The nights can be long. But any time I have a chance, I check Furbo...I love being able to check in on Hudson, even if it’s only for a minute or two.”

We’re honored to have been a part of the lives of these heroes and their dogs. We are all connected in the ongoing battle against the pandemic, and we thank every medical worker for their contributions.
