Would you check your child out or let them skip school because...
... a pet has died?
Our dog is 16 and therefore has been with us for my daughter's entire existence (she's 14). She's sick and the vet told us she probably won't last another week. My daughter's really upset and reluctant to go to school every day because she's afraid Missy won't be alive when she gets home and she wants to tell her goodbye.
I told her to just make sure to give Missy hugs and tell her she loves her and bye each day when she leaves for school, but my husband told her that if something happens, we'll come get her out of school, and that when she goes, DD can stay home from school the next day, too.
I'm not so sure that's a good idea?
