OP was about to leave his farm for a 4-week work trip when his live-in girlfriend invited her friend Taylor over to keep her company
Taylor asked if OP had a spare room to put her dog crate in. OP told her not to bring her dog because he won't be there to supervise.
Taylor went over and brought her dog anyway. Oh, Taylor's dog was in heat and she brought her because OP's girlfriend told her it was okay.
OP was not okay with this and offered to pay for the dog to go to a local kennel. Taylor and OP's girlfriend told OP that he was controlling but OP said he was just trying to prevent any problems from occurring.
The day before OP left for work, Taylor let her dog outside unsupervised. OP just caught her in time when she was trying to squeeze in through the 8-inch gap of the gate.
OP brought the dog inside and told Taylor to keep her dog leashed and supervised at all times when she goes outside. If not, Taylor can leave.
Another fight broke out and OP had to leave for his trip before anything was resolved. OP had his cousin check on the farm while he was away and he said Taylor's dog was leashed and supervised when she was outside.
When OP got home, Taylor left. A few weeks later, Taylor's dog gave birth to a litter of puppies and wanted OP to pay for half of the vet bills until they got rehomed.
Apparently, they only leashed Taylor's dog when OP's cousin was over. At any other time, she was allowed to go into the gated pen and "pay" with OP's male dog.
Taylor was complaining to OP's girlfriend about his dog not being neutered. OP said he won't pay because his dogs stayed in place so it isn't his fault.
Taylor brought her dog willingly even when OP told her not to. OP says Taylor and his girlfriend can cover the vet bills since they let this happen behind his back.
You can read the original Reddit post below:
OP did all he could to prevent this from happening but they didn't listen and now, they're asking OP to pay for the damages they caused
OP has to make sure that the pups are really from his dog
Way too many things had to go right for this to happen and it does reek of an intentional breeding
OP paid for a heritage test to make sure the pups are his dog's and they are
OP was planning on confronting his girlfriend about the truth of the matter which could break their relationship
OP's girlfriend broke his trust and barreled through all of OP's boundaries
Their insistence on blaming it all on OP and demanding he for half of the vet bills is suspicious
You don't have a reason to hide if you're telling the truth, right?
A quick Google search shows that OP's dog is a beauty
The pot has a lot of audacity calling the kettle black
If that's the case, then Taylor shouldn't really be blaming OP for not neutering his dog
Taylor and OP's girlfriend should split the vet bill if they're this concerned
That's a pretty blatant breach of trust on the girlfriend's part
Could Taylor have planned everything to make a profit out of the puppies?
Who feels this entitled when visiting another person's home? Taylor was already at fault when she brought her dog at a working farm like it's a park to visit. OP's girlfriend enabled and supported her friend's actions.
If Taylor's dog proved to be a danger to the sheep and the goats, OP's dog would have defended the herd. This is why OP doesn't allow people to bring their pets to his farm without him to supervise.
OP posted an update after his girlfriend decided to be more honest about what really happened
When OP tried to bring the subject up with his girlfriend, she tried to evade his questions again
OP asked her to talk to Taylor and ask if she has a spare room for OP's girlfriend to move into. This was not received well and OP's girlfriend began yelling, cursing, and crying until she eventually left to stay with another friend.
The now ex-girlfriend felt OP was trying to be controlling when he said Taylor couldn't bring her dog
She said it was also her house and that's why she told Taylor it was okay to bring her dog. She also admitted to starting the fights and making them last longer until OP had no choice but to leave for his flight.
They opened the gate to the dog's pen to allow Taylor's dog to roam freely while they tied OP's two dogs
OP's ex said Taylor didn't go there to breed his dog but she did admit to talking about their adorable puppies if it happened
OP told Taylor she has two options: surrender the puppies so OP can find them a home or OP will sue her for theft of service
Taylor asked if she will get a percentage from the sales of the puppies but OP said he will rehome them to deserving families for free. As for OP's ex-girlfriend, she is officially in the process of moving out of the farm.
Taylor had some guts demanding compensation from OP for the mess that she created. The fact that she asked for money from the sale of the puppy showed her true intentions for bringing her dog in the first place.
The real problem was OP's girlfriend who condoned her friend's actions and did everything she could to hide her part in it from OP. He really dodged a bullet when his ex-girlfriend showed her true colors during this whole thing.
