Why would my parents wait to tell me my dog died?

My parents called to tell me they put my childhood dog down 3 days ago! They waited to tell me after I took my licensure boards Yesterday to tell me today. I’m pretty hurt about it and my mom said it was my dad’s idea. I’m an only child so my dog was like a sibling I never had. My boyfriend has been supportive since I’m really hurt about it he offered to get me *us* a puppy but I declined for now. Doesn’t bring my dog back.
