Really sorry for your loss
it sucks .....I think my dad cried at the loss of his dog and not at my grandmother's passing so I get the depths these furry friends can have on us.
I'm not questioning your reasons but I hope this doesn't get looked at as a tactic in softening difficult news or worse.
After the fact it could be twisted into pity fuck, softening tactic, basic manipulation, cheap attempt to reassure sexual desire, etc, ...something you didn't intend. Is it possible this could send the wrong message ?
