Don't feel bad--when you get my age you find yourself calling your current dog by the name of a dog you had 2 decades ago... One of those moments when you go, 'Am I getting senile?' But then I ask myself that when I walk into another room and wonder why I went in there...

I call Sofie, Chloe at times... I miss that dog, and they have some of the same traits, but Chloe wasn't as pushy so I have to check myself when I get frustrated with Sofie and remind myself she's a completely different dog with a completely different personality.

I do the same with my kids, though, too lol. My 2 year old was the easiest baby, and I have to be careful trying to compare my high needs 6 month old to her, it's just not fair to the baby.b

Be warned though, do not place unrealistic expectation on your new pup. Do not compare him to Cutter. They are different dogs. It's not fair to you or the pup the grow up under the "he is a replica of my last dog"

My new pup I got after I lost my heart dog, Ike, to Hemangiosarcoma. I made sure to get a different color. Just to not always be comparing. But I still find myself looking at my pup and comparing. I have to check myself a lot. I remember how good Ike was at the vets. How he would sit still for anything, let newbies try blood draws, be perfectly calm in public, loved everyone. And I have to remind myself that it took me years to get that. That my puppy is still learning, has different threshold, different triggers, different soul.

Good luck with the new baby. Cutter would want another dog to live the life he had, and have the love he had.
