#77, it takes about a minute to change shoes, and she was probably trying to keep her nicer work shoes from getting dirty out in the yard. Ever worn heels on grass? Not fun. She hardly deserves it for thinking her husband would be a responsible enough person to take care of their pet's basic bathroom needs.
This is me giving you the "yell at your inconsiderate husband" face. >=|
Thank you, Ozuru. Yes, I did think of that and my response to 35 is - anyone who thinks of their own needs before tending to a creature in distress probably shouldn't own animals. It's part of your responsibility as a pet owner. I agree, the husband is a piece of shit but clearly she knows the face her dog makes when it's gotta go so - help the poor creature first. That's all I'm saying.
#45 that's ridiculous, saying someone shouldn't own an animal because her dog had one 'accident' in the house? It only takes a minute to change your shoes, it's not like she went and made herself dinner, and as she'd only just got in OP had no idea how long the dog has been whining for. My dog always gives me fair warning, I've always got time to put on shoes, a coat, grab my keys and a bag etc before taking him out and if I tried to walk my German shepherd in heels when he needs the loo I'd probably break an ankle, once he knows it's going out time he's straight out the door!
If you've been working all day, especially working an extra long day, the FIRST thing you do is let your poor dog out. NO MATTER WHAT. They can only hold it so long. Yes, the husband should have taken the dog out, multiple times, if he was home all day, but since he didn't OP should have let her out the second she saw her poor dog was in distress. For those of you saying she had to change out of her heels- no. If you can walk around in them all day, you can wait a few more minutes to take your dog out in them. Nobody's forcing you to wear uncomfortable shoes, that's your choice, and your dog comes first. Always.
Op had no clue that the husband hadn't taken the dog out all day so she probably assumed the dog just now had to go out. And heels may be a part of her works dress code so she could have been forced to wear them. I think the only way this could possibly be considered ops fault is because she is married to such a piece of shit.
#67 I agree IF the dog has been shut in alone all day. But the op's husband had been home all day, so why on earth would she expect the dog to be so desperate to go that it couldn't hold it for a minute? This is in no way op's fault, the neglect was her husband's not hers.
Everyone who is claiming she's abusive to animals for simply changing a pair of shoes to take a dog out... that's ridiculous. If you are pet owners you would understand. It's really no different than if you had been home all day like the husband and you went and put a pair of shoes on prior. I know I wouldn't walk my dog barefoot or in heels. Quit being so picky, it is not a big deal.
You should give your husband the "You're sleeping in the couch tonight" face.
I hope your husband had a damn good reason to not let the dog out.
That's rough, OP. I have the same problem with trying to get my roommate to let my dog out while I'm at work.
