The OP can't shoulder the 600-euro bill on their own, so they asked the owner for help.
The OP was asked by their friend to watch over their dog while she was taking a learning program.
The dog ate bread with paper wrap and a bunch of grapes, so the OP had to take it to the vet.
The bill was huge, so the OP kept asking the pet owner to shoulder it.
Redditors didn't side with the OP because of their negligence.
Had they stored away all the groceries, the dog wouldn't have access to it.
A user suggests splitting the bill 50-50. After all, the OP still cared for the dog
A few people believe it was an accident.
If the OP wants to deal with the ghosting friend fairly, they need to surrender the dog to a no-kill shelter.
In some places, the OP can already claim the dog as theirs, because they've been taking care of it for the past seven months.
Ultimately, the vet bill is the owner's responsibility. But since the OP is also at fault, she should also contribute to the expenses to be fair.
Given the dog's nature, accidents can happen.
While accidents are bound to happen because of the dog's personality, it is true that the OP was negligent. Their friend, however, can't just have the OP shoulder the entire bill.
To make things fair, they need to split it by half because the dog is both their responsibility. If the friend keeps ignoring them, the OP might have to surrender to the dog to a shelter.
