I am sorry about your dog. You must have loved her a lot so getting a new dog won't necessarily make the hurt go away. It might give you something new to focus on but you would still miss your special pet. But good luck with getting a new pet when your Mom is ready. As far as your sister's dog, you probably didn't do anything to make it scared of you. Little dogs can just be nervous. My Mom's poodle hates everybody except me and my sister.(and Mom) He just hides behind the sofa and barks and growls. Even people he sees a lot and who have been nothing but nice to him. If you make him come out he just shakes and looks desperate to get away. So don't take it too personally.
I am very sorry about your dog. It takes a long time to get over the pain of loss. In time, your mom might be ready for a new pet, but don't try to push so hard. She is probably not taking the loss very well. Some people just need more time.
