The Internet Praises This Genius Mom For Testing Her Husband And Kids To See If They Can Handle A Dog.

A wife’s strict conditions for getting a dog are challenged when her kids fail to follow through on their responsibilities, and her parents take sides. As tensions rise, the wife takes a firm stance, demanding accountability and responsibility from everyone involved.

Before we got married and had kids, my husband and I agreed that all big decisions required two yes or no votes.

Well, our two oldest kids and my husband want a dog. I do not. I have heard too many horror stories about a family getting a pet and then the person who did not want it being stuck caring for it.

I finally agreed on three conditions. One, smaller than sixty pounds, we do not need a mastiff. Two, a non shedding dog only. None of us are allergic, I just don’t want extra work. Three, for sixty days in a row, they had to collect all the garbage from all the trash cans in the house and put it in the big garbage bin. That was to make sure they would remember to feed a dog every day. And for six days they, all three of them, had to go for a one mile walk twice a day. With the GPS route tracker active. If they missed a day, they had to start over.

The longest they have made it so far is two weeks.

My parents called me up to say I was being ridiculous and petty. I 100% agreed with them. But since they always side with the kids, I was ready for them. I sent them a link for a dog walking service in my area. It is very reasonable. I said if they wanted a say in the dog decision they had to agree to set up an account with that company and that I could call up the company for help whenever their precious, perfect, grandchildren and son-in-law forgot to take care of the dog. They said I was being a jerk and that they had the right to their opinion. I agreed that they had that. But unless they were willing to pay to include their opinion in the decision it did not matter.

My husband has finally seen that the kids aren’t responsible enough to have a dog. Great. He said we needed to tell them. I said that “we” was one too many people. I wasn’t the one who sided with them when I had said I knew they were not ready.

He thinks I’m being a D**K.

No one has called me an a**h**e but that’s only because they say it in much more polite terms.
