Bobby came with that name, so we kept it, even though my husband's name is Robert. I don't call him Bobby so there's no confusion. The only confusion happens with my family who sometimes call Robert Bobby so I'm not sure if they're talking about the husband or the dog. Robert's family stopped calling him Bobby when he was 12 or so.
Bobby (the dog) has added a lot of life to this house. We take him for a mile or so walk twice a day, so we're getting our exercise, too. He's a lot of fun. Java likes him, but they're not allowed to play together -- not that Java would ever deign to play with him -- because of her spinal problems. Right now she seems to be really good -- almost too good, actually. She has been jumping up on the furniture even though she's not supposed to.
Here are a couple of Bobby videos:
