Right now, I am struggling with such a case... At what age should I tell my dog that he was adopted?

….Sorry..an attempt to lighten up a heavy discussion..

I was adopted at 3 months. I always knew I was adopted. My opinion that was the way to go. I waited until my Mother and Father had passed as not to hurt them. I never though of finding anything about the people that birthed me.
However because of medical reasons I did find out I had 7 half sibilings on one side and 1 half sibling on the other side. Have met 6 and have been accepted. They are all wonderful people. If anyone has any questions you are welcome to send me a PM.

Interesting, as far as keeping the earth clothes chugging along as lone as we are here, i suppose it is ok, our spirit is created as soon as G-d says "I knew you in the womb", and that is what carries on when the earth clothes are left behind. That's the way I get it anyway, I know in ours there was a chance someone might have "jumped over the fence", giving our family tree and branch to another, in the Darwinian paradigm.

Glad your meeting went well.

best wishes

Come quickly, Lord Jesus
