That’s very sad :(. The FB note should be fine, I probly wouldn’t do anything more unless she contacted you about it. Just leave it at that for now. Sometimes people cope with loss by keeping themselves busy or thinking of something good that’s coming up. Her looking forward to your wedding may help her spirits. I don’t know what I’d do if something happened to my dog, I’d be crushed but I’d still want to help make the cake if its something I said I’d do. To me, my dog is like my kid & I’m so sorry for your step-sis :(.

She probably isn’t going to be checking facebook if she’s dealing with the loss of her pet. I would call if I were you.

Like you said, it will probably be therapeutic for her.  It might even help her keep her mind off of the sadness!  (Licking the batter bowl helps too!)

Oh my goodness, that’s so sad. I dread the day that my brother has to put either of his dogs down. They’re a part of the family and I can’t even think about it without tears coming to my eyes. They make your quality of life so much better and crawl right into your heart and snuggle up.

I think having her make the cake will be theraputic for her. It will give her something to take her mind off of things and focus on something. Maybe give her a quick call and let her know you’re thinking of her, and if the cake is too much, that you understand…I’m sure she’ll say that she still wants to and it will help her along.

Aw, I feel so bad for her. It’s so hard to go through that. 

On Christmas Eve we had to put our 1 1/2 year old cat down very suddenly. That night, I had to go back and make the “Happy Birthday Jesus” cake that R’s extended family does every year. It’s a huge cake that I was making from scratch, etc, and while I literally took crying breaks, it was better than having to talk to anyone right away.

I bet she’s looking forward to the distraction.  That is sad, I have had to do that and its so heart breaking.  Tell her a bunch of strangers are sorry for her!  🙁

awww, what a sad day.

Fiance had to put down his Pepper, the pitt/lab mix he grew up with since he was 12!!! she was like his lil sister!!! (FI is an only child).

we took her in this past halloween, and it was the most heart-wrenching, sad experience that we’ve gone through in a long time.

i think your message to her was thoughtful, maybe give her a call after a lil time passes…
