Doppel Whosey Whatty?

Mom says I have a DOPPELGANGER. I asked her Who or What is a Doppelganger and she said it is kinda like a twin. That also made no sense to me so I went to Mr. Webster and I said:

"Mister Webster, what exactly is a Doppelganger because my Mommy says I have one and I NEED to know what it is! And, most importantly, is it curable?

Mr. Webster gave me this explanation -

This was pretty helpful - although being a sorta visual kinda pug I needed more. So Mommy gave me this as an example of what she was talking about

NOW I get where she is coming from.

How nice of you Noodles to give that other pug a ride. Can you flip over and let him take over??

Does your doppelganger eat dog toys and books?

Noodles, I can't tell which is which?! Is that you with an upside-down pug on your back, or are you riding upside-down on the back of another pug?! I think I gotta re-read that definition again - my brain hurts.

-Love,
Sid.
