Nice friend you've got there

Today, my best friend decided to get herself a new puppy. My dog passed away last week. She named it the same name and got the same breed as mine was. She sees nothing wrong and can’t understand why I’m upset. In fact, she tells me to “stop being a Debbie Downer.” FML

Doesn’t sound like much of a best friend

I lost my Jack Russell Terrier named Frisky 3 yrs ago, and my friend got a JRT and named it Frisky last year, and at first I was torn, but than learned from my kid that my friend wanted to honor my dog as he loved her as much as I did. Outlook changed, and today I love that dog as much as I did mine

Sounds like she loved your dog and wanted to honor its memory. You should be flattered.

Maybe you should take it and get it chipped before she does. Guess who'll be the Debbie Downer then

Funny you say that. I just saw a TikTok video where someone did that and courts ruled the person who chipped the dog is owner.

Your knows what she’s doing and it’s not right

What is with all these YDI votes on this site today, for things OP most definitely doesn't deserve? Losing a pet is a very sad, emotional experience. Then if your "friend" gets the exact same type of pet and gives it the same name, it'll just bring all those depressed feelings to the surface. Maybe the friend wants to honor the pet. That's okay, I get it. But perhaps it should have been discussed with OP first.
