Will she? - February 27th 2019, 01:48 AM

One of the things that I'm scared of is if I let Sasha, (puppy) into my heart all of the way, will she take the spot of my old dog that passed away last year? When I'm playing with her, she is doing some of the things that my older dog used to do, it makes me feel really upset because I miss my older dog. So I go back and forth with liking Sasha. I really want to like her, but I'm struggling with this and don't know what to do. Why is this so hard for me? My parents said that pets don't take other pets spots when you get new ones, they have different personalities. I don't know what to do. When someone has time can you please help me with this.

Hi there!

I can't say that I know exactly what you're going through but I can emphasis. I went through a similar situation a couple of years ago. When my dog passed away in February 2017, who was our family pet for 17 years, we were naturally devastated. 11 days later, we got a new rescue dog and it took me a couple of months to warm up to her. Now I love her.

I agree with your parents and my parents have said the same thing. No dog is the same just like humans due to their personalities.

I'll be honest, your new dog will never replace your old one but that doesn't mean you can't love your new dog either. Your old dog will always be in your heart and there will be room for your new dog.

I have photos of my old dog in my room and around the house to remember him by.

I hope that helped.

Hey, I see where youíre coming from and Iíve been there. I lost my dog last year and just got a new puppy last month. It can be tough especially when she does something that is so similar to my old dog and sheís the same breed as my baby as well. However, I donít think we replace pets but rather give a new pet a different part of our hearts. Your new dog is someone that you can build new memories with and that canít replace your old memories. There are ways to remember your old dog such as having pictures or they have jewelry that you can get as well. Itís tough but itís possible to remember, love and honour your old dog and love your new dog at the same time.

Take care.

No dog could replace each other. If someone you love passes, like a parent and your other parent remarried, they aren't replacing who died. It may feel that way at first but your new dog can't replace the memories you had with the old dog. Both are good dogs.
You could even think of it as the older dog telling the younger to look after you and your family.
Both dogs can forever be in your heart.
