My granddaugher, Sydney, who is 7 years old and lives in Denver, Colorado has a black border collie/chow mix named Remmey. Remmey is about 11 years old and was in good health. My granddaugher and her mother flew to Wisconin this past Friday to visit family. The day after arrival in Wisconsin, her mother got a call from the father saying that Remmey had died; she was laying out on the deck and was dead. As of yet, we do not know the cause of death. Of course, everyone was distraught and now the parents have to tell Sydney that Remmey has died and she will never see the dog again before they return back to Denver or upon arrival on Tuesday. How do you explain to a 7 year old what has happened to Remmey while she was visiting relatives. She loved that dog.

Please advise.
Thank you.
