      Hi Heidi,

      Yes, it's hard to continue a matching names as pets change. But I think using name trend is a nice way to remember and honor pets that have passed. For instance, if you start with Oreo and Hydrox, with each subsequent pet name you can remember where the trend began. Thanks for reading and commenting! Hope you are healthy and doing well!

      These are super cute combos! Sadly, we've never gotten our dogs together. Or one part of a duo passes and then the name game changes when a new one arrives. And one was a rescue who already had a name.

      But with the exception of our last one who came with a name, all but one had an Irish-ish name. Never figured out how we got on that kick, but whatever.

      Hope you're staying safe and well!
