There are studies among other animals showing the importance of letting survivors see the companions that have left them. We had an incident not long ago.

She said Ozzie perked up his ears, looked around, got up, and started looking for Max. She said it almost broke her heart, as it did mine when she told me the story. So they do remember their special people, both dogs and humans, I do believe. I wonder what Barney is going to think about pupster?? That's going to be interesting. He may be very resentful in the beginning, but eventually he will adore having a new friend.
