He understands it: He understands the finality of death.When he steps on a bug he knows it's dead.Keep any other discussion simple.He is not a little big person and unlikely to follow discussions about "a better pace" or doggy heaven. Expect an occasional question about it to come up randomly over the next year.Again make answers short.
