Child kills dog with bone – movie name?


There’s a movie I’ve been dying to find the name of but I can only remember one scene.

The scene takes place inside a house, not sure if inside the child’s room, or some other room, but definitely indoors.
A child, I’m pretty sure it’s a girl but I don’t remember for certain, shoves a chicken bone into the back of a dogs neck, and some time later the dog is found dead.

That’s literally the only thing from the movie I can recall, and it’s driven me crazy for years.
Could be from the 80’s or 90’s possibly, I remember the film quality being kind of old, like that generation/era.
I think the movie may have been a thriller, but I’m not sure, perhaps a drama.
The child was definitely disturbed, but I can’t remember if either no one else in the movie noticed it, or if the child was actually hiding it.

Please help me ! I’ve had this scene stuck in the back of my mind for probably over 2 decades now (I’m in my 30’s) and I neeeed answers.
