Boy's Reaction To Dog Having To Be Put Down Shocks Everyone

A post about a veterinarian and the 6-year-old boy who learned his dog had to be put down is warming hearts. “A Dog’s Purpose According to a 6-Year-Old,” is about a veterinarian who had to examine a sick 10-year-old Irish wolfhound named Belker.

The family —Ron, Lisa and their son Shane— loved Belker and were hoping for a miracle, according to PawMyGosh.

The veterinarian learned that the dog had cancer and there was nothing more that could be done for him. So, the vet offered to euthanize the dog in the family’s own home. The parents said they had wanted their son to observe the procedure so he could learn from the experience.

Shane was petting his dog for the last time, and the vet wondered if Shane knew what would occur. Belker soon passed away peacefully, and the boy seemed to accept and understand. The vet and parents spoke about how it’s sad that animal lives are shorter than human lives, when Shane suddenly spoke up.

“I know why,” he said. “People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right? Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”
