Especially when we keep calling the new dogs the old dog's name! Gabby's been gone since Feb. of 1998 and I STILL call Fritz 'Gabby' sometimes. OWC admits he does the same thing. Good thing Fritz isn't easily offended. It's like when the kids were young - you go through all their names until you get to the kid you're actually calling for. I remember Mom doing it, and I did it too.our dogs never really leave us.
