My 17 year old pomapoo died suddenly on Friday. My boys (8 and 5) were with my ex when it happened and still don’t know. I have them during the day tomorrow for Father’s Day, but they go back to her tomorrow evening. I’m torn between telling them tomorrow or waiting until i have them for an extended stretch Starting Wednesday.

The grief is very hard right now, and I’m sure they will be upset. Their mother has a tendency to make all issues about her even when it hurts the kids which just hurts the kids more. So do i tell them knowing I’m sending them back into uncertainty, or wait until i can be with them?

First of all, I’m sorry for your loss. I’m a divorced dad and will have my daughter with me for Father’s Day tomorrow too. Our cockatiel just died today which is why I’m here- if I were in your shoes I would tell my kids tomorrow, and be open with my own grieving. It sucks. I’m really sad. Nature is tough. We can’t control it. I think Father’s Day can be about more than happy moments- it can be about sharing sad moments too.

Just tell them the dog is at the vet and not doing well to brace them for what's coming and tell them the dog didn't make it when you have them later in the week. I think your instinct about how to handle that is right. Sorry for your loss!
