Today, on my daughter's 9th birthday, I have to let her know that her dog died in his sleep overnight. Happy birthday. FML

  • Death is always unexpected, so please take your time explaining. No matter what age, death is hard for us all. Even losing my fiancée not long ago, I break down and still am trying to hold on. Our support network makes all of the difference in the world. We don't have to bear through life alone. Just be there. That's all anyone can do or ask for.

    RIP Joy.

  • OP here -- we told her. We didn't have a choice. She was devastated and will be for some time. She's spent considerable time at farms, so she gets the whole cycle-of-life thing but it's different when there is an emotional connection. There won't be any dogs in the near future. Maybe in the spring we can talk about adopting a rescue dog.
