I'm not sure how gone your mother is with her Az but I like the idea of getting her another dog, maybe one that looks like Dolly. You can always say, if you find a dog like Dolly, that it was a mistake and you brought Dolly home. Sometimes we have to do these little tricks to keep them happy.
We all know that losing a beloved pet is horrible and they're irreplacable but people with Az have a different way of looking at things. They tend to stick with the same emotional and physical patterns. So when something happens and it puts a wrench into that patterns, it can aggravate, aggitate, or make them beligerant or depressed.
