I’m one of those people who typically likes dogs way more than people, so I never like to read a story about a dog being sick or injured.

On the other hand, I also am not a huge fan of people who don’t know how to listen to others, so this story is a bit of a mixed bag for me.

Was the person who wrote it wrong for how they acted toward a friend and her dog?

Read on to get the whole story.

AITA for not being upset that my friend’s dog could die because of me?

“I was hosting a big garden party at the weekend. I invited my entire friend group plus their partners, one of my friend takes her dog everywhere. I told her no pets were allowed.

They were clear with her friend.

Although it was a garden party we were in and out of my home and I have 4 cats. My cats do not like dogs and neither do I.

But she didn’t listen…

Anyway my friend showed up with her dog, I told her that her dog was not welcome in my home or garden. And asked her to please take her dog home or elsewhere.

I thought my friend left. I went inside to sort some things out.

I went into my garden about 15 minutes later and my friend was standing there in my garden talking to our friends. She doesn’t live that close so I was confused.

I went to ask her how she got back so quickly, she told me she just popped in and was going since her dog isn’t welcome.

I asked her where her dog is and she shrugged her shoulders and said he was around.

The dog was misbehaving.

I went looking and found him in the garden eating my crops and making a mess.

I was angry and told my friend to get her dog off my property.

And now the pooch was in distress.

A few hours later she called me asking me what her dog ate, I had no clue. My gardener plants and attends everything,

I told her I didn’t know, but told her he’d made a huge mess, dug things up and clearly eaten things.

She shouted at me that her dog is sick and that I need to find out what the dog ate. I told her I had no idea, but I’d text my gardener to ask, but it was really her problem.

And now the dog is REALLY sick.

I did send the text, but my gardener didn’t answer. My friend called again wanting to know what her dog ate, but I told her I still didn’t know. She told me I obviously don’t care if her dog passes away and called me an *******.

I still don’t know what her dog ate, but apparently he is very sick and might pass away.

I feel bad, but I told her not to bring her dog on my property so I don’t feel responsible like she says I am.


Check out what folks had to say about this.

One person said they’re NTA and that this is all their friend’s fault.

Another individual also said they’re NTA and talked about how they handle their dog.

One Reddit user is sad about what happened to the dog, but…

This reader had a lot of different thoughts about this situation.

And one Reddit user said she’ll probably going to try to get them to pay and laid out how they should handle it.

I don’t think these two are going to be friends anymore…

Just a hunch…
