I know mine isn't.
We got Benji, our hyper-active Cocker Spaniel, as a furry friend for our two young boys to grow up with.
We thought getting a dog would teach the boys about responsibilities … But we're still working on that.
Anyway, Benji quickly became a major part of our family. He loves us unconditionally, is such a character and he's SO good with the boys.
But despite that, and I feel just awful about it now, I never really thought about what would happen if he went missing.
It was never going to happen to me right?
It did happen to me, and I can't put into words how devastating it was.
One gorgeous Sunday morning in March 2017, I took Benji out to our neighbourhood woods for a hike.
My husband was running errands and the boys were at soccer practice. It was the perfect time for a little peace and quiet in the wilderness with Benji.
I unclipped his leash and off he went, ears flopping from side to side as he ambled through the trees.
He's four now, and is pretty well trained (except for when it comes to food), so I let him run around and do his thing, knowing he'll always come back to my side when I call.
But about 3km into the hike, I turned a bend in the path and saw him frozen in his tracks.
A coyote had wandered out of the woods and was just standing there staring at him!
I could tell Benji was scared, he'd never come across anything like a coyote before!
"It's ok boy, just come here," I said softly.
The coyote looked curious rather than sinister, but I was just desperate to have Benji back on his leash…
Instead of coming back to me like I thought he would, he panicked and bolted off into the woods.
The sudden movement startled the coyote and he ran off in another direction.
But how was I going to get Benji back?
I started sprinting after him screaming his name, but I'd already lost him in the thick trees.
I started to panic… BIG TIME. There's a huge waterfall just off the trail path, and Benji hasn't be able to swim since he hurt his leg last year.
That's when I remembered that my husband had put a TrackR on Benji's collar a few weeks ago!
I completely forgot about it in my blind panic!
Maybe I could still find him before something terrible happened?
I opened the app on my phone and started tracking Benji instantly…
The map showed he was around 90 feet away!
I tracked his location as quickly as I could, but it showed that Benji had stopped moving…
"Oh God no!"
Had he fallen in the water? Or fallen into a ditch? Or worse!?
I crashed through the trees and arrived at his location, looking around desperately.
The app said I was right next to Benji, but I couldn't see him!
So I hit the 'Ringer' button on the TrackR app…
It sounded loud and clear just metres from where I was standing!
I followed the sound and then I finally saw him, cowering inside a hollowed out log.
I've never been so relieved in my entire life!
Thank God I had TrackR!
I don't know if I'd have found Benji before something terrible had happened without it!
TrackR is a tiny tracking device, no bigger than a quarter, that's revolutionizing the way people keep their precious belongings safe – especially pets!
It's so easy!
The TrackR app provides a GPS map pinpointing the exact location of your missing pet.
If you're still struggling to locate them, simply hit the 'Ringer' button on your phone to call the device and follow the sound. How easy is that?
Your TrackR bluetooth works within a 100ft range of your lost pet. However, TrackR's 'Crowd GPS' will also send you a location update if another user comes within bluetooth range of your pet!
AND you can engrave the TrackR with your pet’s name and important contact information for extra peace-of-mind!
If you don’t already know, most GPS units are kinda expensive, and require a monthly subscription.
But with TrackR, you only pay a one-time fee for the device itself, and that's it!
Which means that it's a great gift for all the animal lovers in your life!
It's hard to believe, but the TrackR is only $29.00 – with free shipping! Making it affordable for any budget!
Losing Benji, even for a short time, was absolute HELL!
The stress. The panic. The sheer terror I felt in that moment. I wouldn't want anyone to go through that. And for just $29 you will never have to.
Pets bring such joy to our lives every single day. They love us unconditionally and ensuring their safety really is the least we can do to repay them.
That's why I would recommend TrackR to all pet owners!
Plus, for a limited time, when you purchase 4 TrackR devices, they'll send you 4 more for FREE… still with free shipping!
That way, you can track multiple pets at the same time, or other valuables such as keys, wallets, laptops, phones, bikes and luggage!
You won't find a better deal than this!
I'm so thankful that my husband put a TrackR on Benji's collar.
I can't bear to think about having to tell the boys that their best friend wouldn't be coming home.
That's why I urge anyone with a pet to put a TrackR on their collar.
Hopefully the worst case scenario never happens to you, but why risk it?
The TrackR is so easy and inexpensive; there's no reason not to get one right now!
