losing a pet, how did you tell your kids
I think we will be putting our dog to sleep soon, within the next few months anyway. Not sure about when because I'm not ready and I keep putting it off. I started trying to talk to my son about it and he just bawled. He's 9 years old and he understands death--we had a bad year last year, three family members died. Once he started crying I just hugged him and didn't talk about it any more. How did you tell your kids about a beloved pet dying?
