Redditor Asks If She's An A**hole For Not Cleaning Up After Her Grandmother's Six Dogs Who Like To "Poop Everywhere"
Dogs are incredibly smart animals, but if they're not trained correctly, they can be a handful. And, if they're not toilet trained, well, let's just say you're in for a whole lot of cleaning.
Reddit user u/azbycxdwevguhtisjrkq recently posted in the AITA (Am I The A**hole?) subreddit about an issue she's having with her grandmother's dogs. She explained that her grandma has six dogs, and none of them are trained at all.
They all go to the bathroom in the house, and OP's grandma doesn't seem to clean up very well after them. The Redditor explained that she was taking care of the dogs for her grandma for two weeks.
When she arrived on the first day, there were already three piles of poop and four puddles of pee in the house. The OP says the dogs need to be watched closely when they go outside, and they will eat their poop if it's not picked up immediately.
And, in true doggy fashion, they will then share their poopy breath with everyone around them. The OP said that one of the dogs had snuck a frozen poop from outside into the house, ate it as a snack, and then vomited it up on the OP!
The Redditor says she can never sleep for more than three hours at a time when she's watching them because they will wake her up to go outside every few hours. But they still poop inside either way.
The OP says she does it to help her grandmother as she can't afford to pay a professional. But the OP refuses to clean up after the dogs any more thoroughly than her grandma does.
So, she picks up the poop, wipes up the pee, and leaves her shoes on at all times in the house. Her sister says she's an a**hole, but the OP says her grandmother doesn't do anything more than that.
Some of the dogs are wrinkly breeds and need their wrinkles cleaned regularly. However, it never gets done, so the dogs always smell bad.
The OP says she feels bad for not cleaning more deeply for her grandma, but she doesn't really see the point with how dirty all of the dogs are. Keep scrolling to see how people reacted.
