Robopet's Rebelliousness

Some people have been commenting on 's lack of responsiveness to commands sometime. Robopet appears to ignore commands sometimes, or there is a long delay before he responds. This happens for one of two reasons.

First case, a long delay before responding. Robopet likes to finish a trick he starts before responding to a new command. Even if it is the stop command. Like a stubborn child, he does hear the command when you give it, he just wants to finish what he is doing before responding to it. Since some of Robopet's tricks take a long time to complete, the delay is quite noticeable.

Second case, he just plain ignores a command. This is a strange rebellious behavior that everyone has seen in their digital doggy. It can be a little frustrating, but in a way it makes him feel like a real dog. It's just part of is personality. It can be endearing in a robotic toy, but let's hope our automobiles never get like that!
