Back To The Future - Einstein the Dog
In the Back to the Future trilogy, Doc Brown has a dog named Einstein in the year 1985. Now when Marty goes back to the 50's, he seeks out a thrity year younger Doc Brown, who lives in the same house and owns the same dog as he did in the 80's. Okay, he does call Einstein a different name in 1955 (Capericus), but it is generally implied that he's the same dog. How can that be? The average life expectancy of most dogs is 10-15 years. How could have Einny lived that long?

I think what this person is trying to say is that even if we all assumed it was two different dogs, it's not mentioned in the movies so thats why they considered it a slip up. What I think this guy messed up on is saying that Doc Brown lived in the same house. I don't think he did because Marty doesn't know where he lives the first time he goes back to 1955.

Capericus is a parent to Einstein. Einstein is the same dog in 2015 because he time travels with the Doc.

He didn't have the same dog. They are different dogs that look the same, as they are of the same breed and, for all I know, could have been the same dog in real life. The fact that the names are different represents the abbreviated life span of their species. If 1885 Doc had the exact same dog with the same name in 2015, wouldn't that be a bit odd?
