When a character or animal is sent away, its this trope. Subtrope of ShootTheDog. Compare to ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies, BreakHisHeartToSaveHim, LineInTheSand and ShooOutTheClowns. (Get out of the plot while you can, Tropey, AnyoneCanDie now!)

* Subverted at the end of the ''StrawberryShortcake's Berry Bitty Adventures'' episode "Fish Out of Water." Orange Blossom finally realizes that the best way to care for her pet frog, Tad, is to let him to back to the wild. She gears herself up for a heartfelt goodbye, only for Tad to hop away happily the moment she takes off his leash.

* From ''{{Okami}}'', ExpositionFairy and general inch-high annoyance Issun leaves Amaterasu (the player character) just before the final dungeon, and drives her away with his sword when she tries to follow. Since ''you're'' the dog, you're not amused.

* The good ending to ''{{Rule of Rose}}'' can be seen as this in a metaphorical sense. Over the course of the game, it's revealed the player's best friend is in fact [[spoiler:the BigBad]], having [[spoiler:arranged the deaths of every other character]] because she [[spoiler:felt abandoned]] because the player was [[spoiler:spending more time with her pet dog than with her.]] The epilogue is a flashback/dream sequence where the player is sent back before the whole thing began and chains the dog inside a shed to metaphorically protect him, along with her other precious memories.
