(PIX11) — Nothing can prepare you for the loss of a first pet, no matter how big or small.
In a YouTube video called “Boy loses best friend,” a mother asks her toddler what he’s going to do with the dead goldfish in his hand.
“Flush him down the toilet!” the little boy says, sans hesitation.
But, as he watches his beloved gold fish swirl down the toilet, he finally comes to terms with what he’s just lost.
He takes a longing look at the now-empty bowl, and it’s clear he can’t hold back the tears that erupt shortly after.
“What’s wrong?” his mother asks before the child comes in for a comforting hug.
If only every gold fish owner cared this much.
