It’s a question of a 6 year old kid and it will make you surprised.
I am a veterinarian and I was nominated for examination for Belker, a 10 year old dog. A couple Ron, Lisa and a 6 year old boy Shane who have been living together with the dog Belker and hoping there would be a miracle to him.
I have examined Belker and found that he is tired of cancer. I advised the family that there was no way to cure him and suggested death by medicine.
When We were preparing the medicine, Ron and Lisa thought that their boy Shane needed to watch this progress so that he could learn something from this experience.
Next day, I felt sad when I saw the family clustered round the dog. Shane fondled the dog before he passed. The boy composed himself and it made me confused, I wondered whether he could understand what was happening or not. A moment later, Belker passed.
Shane seemed to accept that Belker passed away. After death of Belker, we sat and comforted together and wondered why dogs could not live as long as humans? Shane was sitting silently and suddenly spoke up: “I knew the reasons”.
We were all surprised and looked at the boy, after listening to what he said, we got amazing. They changed my opinion because they were very warm.
“People are born in order to learn to have a nice life, like we have to love and take care of other people, is it right?” Said Shane.
“So the dogs already knew that, why do they live long?” The boy continued.
Yes, the boy already made me awake and understand many things below:
Enjoying a simple life
