I'm sorry about your dog :( your boyfriend most likely is just really awkward with comforting people and was trying to make you feel better about it, but if he was seriously being a douche then you should rethink your relationship. Even though it's a dog, dogs feel like family to a lot of people and it's an insensitive thing to joke about.

Teach him to "play dead"

Maybe your boyfriends way of comforting you was by humour? some people really don't know how to make someone feel better in that situation, so they try to make them laugh. Just a thought

26 - I think they meant "teach you boyfriend to "play dead"." in the same way the dog was playing dead (killing the bf). Still not a great comment though.

Sorry about your dog, OP. As to what your boyfriend said, it's his job to at least try to comfort you. My advice is to lose the boyfriend and find someone that actually cares about you.

He was trying, he might not have said something very comforting, but he was trying to make her laugh. How do you know he doesn't care? I had someone tell me 'don't worry, your dogs not really dead' when my dog died, doesn't mean they don't care, it means they don't know what to say.

Some people's coping mechanism through tragedy is with comedy. Obviously it didn't work in this scenario and maybe he should have known that she would've taken it badly. But everything I just mentioned depends on an individual's personality, so what works for one person won't necessarily work for another. When some people are nervous, they sweat. Others might laugh. There is no 'right' comforting thing to say to someone when something like this happens, you can only try to bring some modicum of happiness into a time of grief.
