So happy to read stories of people moving on with other pets. I always said when my cat went I would get another one right away but I feel like why would I want to go through all that again? anyone else ever feel that way? I definitely do miss having a pet around but losing them is just awful.

Losing a pet is just dreadful.

The memories of the love shared is divine.

Every day tens of thousands of pets that formerly had a good home are put to sleep because no one shows up to adopt them.

You can't save them all, but you can save one.

Sometimes it's not the human that rescues the pet, but the pet that rescues the human.

After what you went through losing your other puppy, it sounds like you needed double the loving and double the rescue!

Now the fun begins as you discover these new personalities that will make you laugh and smile.  ;D

Show us more pics of your new little darlings. If you want to change their names, now is the time to do it.

I changed my dog's name and he caught on real quick.  Of course he now responds to many "names" such as cheese, treat, toy... any of those words gets his attention instantly. LOL!

I taught my baby to play Frisbee, it's his favorite toy! Here's his pic:

If you want to change their names, now is the time to do it.

We are considering that, not thrilled with the names they came with. We're trying to determine how well they know their names before we change them, at the moment they don't seem all that familiar with them. Plus, the names sound similar enough they both come when we call so hard to determine if they really know them at all.

Yep. Change the names to something you like.  ;D Dogs will adapt quickly.

Stop using the old names.

Chances are they will both come to either name you choose. Even "Girls" or "the Girls" might work fine as a name that fits both.

A friend of mine started calling my dog "Monkey" and he began responding to that even though I had named him something else. Mine also responds to "Wanna go for a ride?" He either runs for the car or the bicycle and is thrilled to ride either. If I say "Wanna go to the dog park?" He gets wildly excited too.

Dogs are smart, they will learn their new names quick enough. Use the new names every time you put out food, or offer up treats or toys.

Change it and enjoy!

Post more pics of the new fur babies!

This is what it looks like when you're a pound puppy and you win the doggy lottery....

Nice photos Scott.  Good looking pups.  Today is the one month anniversary of our loss and we are trying to decide whether to get another pup or not. I have no doubts we will but it is just a matter of time and the right age of dog decision - pup, adult, senior.  Because we have two cats we think maybe another pup will eventually be the choice as they could adapt to a pup a lot better than a full grown dog plus the pup would be accustomed to our ways from the get go (bonding).  In any case, we are happy to see that you have helped heal your heart with these two fine pups.  Enjoy.

  We changed the name of our Dobie pup from Zorro to Brody six months ago when he was 18 months old. I occasionally use his old name just to see if he recognizes it and it was evident early on that he adjusted and has forgotten his old Zorro name. It was interesting though when I was playing an older video of him playing with the rescuers, He didnt respond to her calling his name as much as her voice.
