OH Cubbie Dog...

Today I had to tell my kids that my parents dog died. What is the right way to tell a 3 & 4 year old that? I could have lied and said that the dog ran away or it went to help the firemen but I thought I would tell them the truth.

I sat them down and told them that Cubbie was old and wasn't feeling very good. I then said that grandma & paps took Cubbie to the doggie dr. and at the dr.s office Cubbie died. They started crying instantly. I had to tell them that Cubbie is now in heaven playing with firemen. Lucas couldn't breathe because he was so upset. He even made a song for Cubbie -

Oh Cubbie dog oh Cubbie dog - you are the best dog ever! oh Cubbie dog oh Cubbie dog - we will miss you forever!


Ten minutes of my kids sobbing had me a mess. I remember the day Cubbie walked into my life.
