the concept of death to a 9 year old

I had the unfortunate opportunity of explaining to K, my little sister, why the dog we adopted and tried to save was dying. See, she saw that it was weak and decided to watch over it. It then started to wheeze and obviously was about to die. She started bawling like no other. It was heartbreaking.

I told her it was because the puppy was neglected and not allowed to eat for several days. As much as we would like for the puppy to live, it didn't survive anymore. It was really sad. I felt so sad seeing the puppy trying to breathe and knowing that it wouldn't.

It was really heartbreaking. =(
