Woman’s boyfriend refuses to let his dog pee so he doesn’t ‘spoil’ him
A woman on Reddit is rethinking her relationship with her boyfriend because he refuses to let his dog go to the bathroom.
On Reddit, the woman shared that she and her boyfriend, “Tommy,” decided to move in together, so she brought along her dog, Spud.
She didn’t expect her partner to just take care of Spud, but she was horrified when she learned that he just refused to let the dog pee when he was home.
When confronted, Tommy told him he didn’t want to “spoil” the dog or train Spud to “expect it”. Now the woman is questioning her relationship.
“I have a dog ‘Spud’ that I had before we were together. I would never ask Tommy to take care of him in any way normally,” she wrote via Reddit. , noting that while her boyfriend was home from work for three days, she expected him to let Spud urinate – but he just refused.
“He said, ‘No, I won’t, because then he’ll be expecting it’ and [Tommy] didn’t want to “spoil” him by letting him out during the day. I told him he didn’t need a full walk, but a few minutes to pee on the lawn would make him feel better, but Tommy still insisted he didn’t care.” , she continued.
The woman even suggested that they hire a dog walker, but Tommy told her he was afraid the dog walker would steal their stuff.
In an update, the woman revealed that she had ‘re-thought’ her relationship with Tommy due to several issues, but the ordeal of the dog could be ‘the straw that broke the camel’s back’.
In the comments section, users rallied around the woman, with many suggesting she dumps her boyfriend.
“I really don’t understand Tommy’s reasoning at all. Spoil a dog by letting it pee? What?” one person wrote.
“It’s absolutely a dumping offence. He was happy to let your dog suffer? How could you be with someone like that?” another commented.
“Tommy’s behavior is atrociously insensitive to poor Spud and shocking that he acts offended by your concern,” someone else wrote.
“Spuds before misfires,” weighed another user.
