* The ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Jurassic Bark"- Fry finds the fossil of his dog, and the rest of the episode chronicles Fry dealing with the angst from the death of his dog, and his eventually letting it go in the end. The end of the episode makes this tragic by showing the dog spent the rest of its natural life waiting for Fry to come back, but this was retconned even later into showing Seymour did live and die happily with a time-paradox clone of Fry that was accidentally created by an unrelated incident.

* The French-Canadian film ''La Guerre des Tuques'' (of the Film/TalesForAll series) took its English title, ''The Dog who Stopped the War'' from the ending of the movie. Of course the dog ends the (snowball) war by dying. Poor girl has a snow fort collapse on her. No Newbery (obviously), but several awards and nominations anyway, and an acclaimed and beloved classic to this day in Quebec.

* Taken to [[UpToEleven soul-crushingly depressing levels]] in Karen Hesse's ''Literature/OutOfTheDust'', the 1998 NewberyMedal winner. The main character's mother's body is [[BodyHorror disfigured]] in a horrific freak accident, she later dies while [[DeathByChildbirth giving birth to a baby boy]], and, to put the icing on the cake, the whole mess could've been avoided if the protagonist hadn't been in the wrong place at the wrong time. [[EarnYourHappyEnding She gets better]].

* In the ''{{Sixteen}}'' episode "Fish and Make Up", Jude's pet fish [[ADogNamedDog (named Fish)]] dies at the end of the episode due to improper (yet well-meaning) care from his owner. [[TearJerker Jude is quite broken up about it,]] and when Jen arranges a funeral, the main cast comes to term with Fish's death. By the way, this was the episode that got the show its first award nomination.
