* ''Literature/{{Mick Harte Was Here}}'' is a well-done example that shows how the narrator Phoebe and her family deal with the loss of her younger brother. It won the William Allen White Children's Book Award.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/VeranoAzul'', the death of [[spoiler: CoolOldGuy Chanquete]] happens almost to the end of the series and ''completely'' [[WhamEpisode changes the mood of the following episodes.]] And since the series itself is a ComingOfAgeStory for the young protagonists, well, here it is.

%%* The {{WesternAnimation/Rugrats}} episode, "I Remember Melville". Chuckie has a pillbug named Melville which he takes in as a pet and as a friend. However, after only a few minutes in, he unexpectedly dies and it is here where Chuckie and the rest of the babies go through the process and concept of death.
* 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.
