Death is a (dispreferred) indifferent. Human beings live for such a short time that it doesn't truly, deeply, matter how one dies. What makes us fearful of death is the wrongful judgment that it is a bad thing for a person to die.

To paraphrase Epictetus, life is like an open door in a smoky hut. You're free to walk out of that door if there is too much smoke, but if you choose to remain then don't complain about it.

It is consoling to remember that the option of suicide is always available, because it is due to that option that one can stand fast when life is difficult.

As for dog sex it is at best an indifferent and at worst animal abuse, depending on the individual situation.
