I NEED HELP MOMS!!!!!!! Would you let your children go with you to euthanize your pet? We have a dog we have to put down tommorow and I don't know if I should take the kids with us or have them go to grandmas. We have explained to them what is going to happen and they want to go but I have had a few people tell me it would be too traumatic. My kids are 5 & 8. What should I do?Answer Question

Let them choose. Tell them what will happen.
Take a picture of you dog after the dog dies. That is a problem I've had, I keep trying to remember in my head. If there were a picture then I could let the image in my head go.
I'm so sorry.

I would take them to the grandparents considering their ages. Sometimes, euthanasia does not go as smoothly as it should and I would hate for them to see that. I know it is a very hard time and I am truly sorry but I would let them say their good-byes before hand.
