What kind of logic is that?
If they think it's her job, they better start paying her for her services.
Life doesn't work like that at all.
If Op is pushed to take care of the dog, she should ask for compensation.
What you do for a living and your personal life are two different things.
They can help each other take care of the dog and don't need Op's help.
The whole family has to agree on what kind of breed they should adopt.
Op's family is still waiting to get the dog.
Op might get attached to the dog despite the circumstances.
"Bottom line - the dog is a living creature, and if you agreed to the general idea of getting a dog, you shouldn't let it suffer."
Op's family didn't want to listen to her warnings.
Op should not risk getting in trouble with her parents over it.
Op needs to have a serious discussion with her family about the dog.
It's a living being, and Op's feelings or preferences are irrelevant in this situation.
Op was excluded from the decision and should not have any of the responsibility.
Op can't just reject the dog's love because of her personal reasons.
Op will evidently not neglect the dog if it needs assistance.
Op is 16 and allowed to consider this a problem.
This is an interesting story, and it brings on several dilemmas. What should Op do?
It is hard to say. Op has every right to refuse to take any responsibilities since her family excluded her from the decision-making.
