Mom moved back in with us around Sept of 2006. At the time, we had a dog (named Cricket) that turned out to be aggressive, so unfortunately we had to give Cricket up. Earlier this year, we got a black lab mix named Bella. About 25 yrs. ago, my brother had a black mutt named Sally. Mom started calling Bella by the name of Sally, and I would tell her that Sally died years ago and that this is Bella. Believe it or not, she may not remember a whole lot, but she finally remembers the difference and calls our dog by the right name. To me, this is progress in the progression of this illness she has.
