All animals eventually die, even your pets. Learn how to deal with it in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:34 Explanations: 3:32 Fast dialog: 15:47 Dad: Honey, I have some bad news for you. Fluffy has gone to the other side. Sarah: You mean she’s out of her cage again? I’ll go and try to find her. Dad: No, you don’t understand. Fluffy passed away in the night. Sarah: Oh, she died! That’s too bad, but she was getting up there in years. Dad: Yes, but she didn’t die a natural death. She was run over by the neighbor’s car. Sarah: You mean she was flattened? Cool! Dad: Well, I wouldn’t put it that way, but I understand if you’re in shock. I guess people show grief in different ways... Sarah: Fluffy went out with a bang. That’s the way she would have wanted to go. Dad: I’d like to think of her as being in heaven and she’s gone to meet her maker. Sarah: I don’t think there’s an afterlife for animals, Dad. It’s all just a part of the circle of life. Dad: Okay. I thought we could have a funeral for her so we can pay our respects. Sarah: Is that really necessary? Dad: I’d thought you’d want one. She was your pet after all. Sarah: No, let’s just bury her in the backyard. Dad: And who said that the youth of today is cynical? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
