But I don't have any close friends to share stuff like this with and it's kind of tough. Sorry to go on but just needed to put it out there.

my first thought is that your dog depended on you to protect him, you (and your family) were the alpha males in the pack and you all let him die, I wouldn`t worry about your kids, as a pet person I`m sure you will have more pets and they will die eventually also so your kids will get used to pets dying,but your dog will never understand why the alpha male of the pack didn`t protect him.

Thanks Skywatcher, I really appreciate your comments. We haven't talked with them yet. I don't know if I really want to. They weren't home they were on their way to Florida for vacation. The were about two hours away and turned around and came back when they got the call. I feel really bad for the pet sitter. Poor thing was out of her mind screaming and crying and trying to get the dog off Ziggy. I feel almost as bad for her as for my kids. I think she is like 16 and I'm sure it will deeply affect her too.
