Losing a beloved pet is as hard, sometimes harder, as losing any other member of your family. They sometimes misbehave but, generally speaking, they offer unconditional love, companionship and a furry shoulder to cry into when the times get tough.
You know you looked after him well Grandma & he had a happy life with you. It won't harm your GC if they see how upset you are and you can say goodbye together as a family.
Looking after (& losing) pets is the perfect way to teach children about the ups, downs & responsibilties of life.
Best wishes at this painful time x
