Pets enrich so many of our lives. Customers tell us the technology behind Blink, Ring, and Alexa-enabled devices helps them stay safe, entertained, and connected with family. Often, pets are part of those experiences.
In honor of National Pet Day, we’re sharing stories about how Amazon devices have captured fun moments—or helped create hilarious photos—with furry members of the family. Scroll through to see videos that made us smile, including cats meowing with Alexa, a parrot asking Alexa to play music, a mischievous dog getting busted by Blink, and owners reuniting with lost pets.
Let us know how you’re using Amazon devices by posting your photos or videos and tagging them @amazon, @alexa99, @blinkforhome, or @ring.
