Sparrowgrass, your kids reminded me of a story I once heard Alfred Hitchcock tell.

A little boy had a pet hamster that was old and not looking too well. His father wanted to try and prepare his son for it's probable death. He sat the boy down and explained that when our pets get old and their bodies wear out, the body dies and the spirit goes to heaven. He went on to say that if the worst should happen, they would prepare a lovely wooden box and paint it with gold paint and decorate it with little "jewels". Then they would find a shady spot in the garden and dig a deep hole. They would call all the little boy's friends together and have a burial in the garden so that his pet would have a fitting send-off. Afterward, they would have drinks and cookies and tell wonderful stories about the little hamster. As the father finished, he looked into his son's face, who had been listening raptly throughout. Then the little boy leaned forward and whispered "Let's kill him, Daddy."

Well, my daughter schleps a duck alone, last time we were in Chinese place we ordered some Pecking duck. I told her that this is duck and ask if she wants some. She looked at her duck, then at the one on the table and said that it is impossible for it to be a duck as it did not look anything alike and bit into it. After she finished with her portion she said 'for sure it was not the duck, because she tried to bite her duck in the past and the one she ate taste much better". Thank G-d she is not like her mother who doesn't eat whole bunch of things.

I also can't bring myself to eat rabbit or lamb
A few years back the guest services mangager decided to throw an end of season party at his house for the seasonal staff. When he ( greek decent) was at the office he told DH it was hard but he finally found some lamb for the party to which DH replied " lamb? what happened did they run out of puppies and kittens?" I know it's awful but it was funny.

For awhile, one of the only healthy things I could get my youngest daughter to eat was tuna - I'd make her tuna salad on a mini-bagel. That is, until her older sister told her, "you know that's fish, right?", and she dropped the bagel in horror.
