A DOG'S PURPOSE ACCORDING TO A 6 YEAR OLD Being a veterinarian I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish wolfhound named Belker The dog's owners Ron his wife Lisa and their little boy Shane were all very attached to Belker and they were hoping for a miracle I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home As we made arrangements Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience The next day I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker's family surrounded him Shane seemed so calm petting the old dog for the last time that I wondered if he understood what was going on Within a few minutes Belker slipped peacefully away The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any difficulty or confusion We sat together for a while after Belker's death wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than human lives Shane who had been listening quietly piped up I know why Startled we all turned to him What came out of his mouth next stunned me I'd never heard a more comforting explanation 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? The six-year-old continued Well dogs already know how to do that so they don't have to stay as long FUNNY STUFF ON MEMEPIXCOM MEMEPIXCOM Why must you hurt me like thisomg-humortumblrcom Meme
