Redditor Shares Heartbreaking Story About Being Separated From Her Dog, But Redditors Call Her Out For Being Entitled And Sadfishing
Today's article revolves around a young woman who is dealing with a difficult situation involving her beloved dog. Her parents are getting a divorce, and as a result, they are transferring ownership of her dog to her aunt and uncle.
Although she understands that her parents need to sell the house and move on with their lives, she is understandably upset about not being able to see her dog as often as she would like. The young woman had asked her parents to wait until she and her boyfriend could find a bigger place to transfer ownership of the dog.
However, her sister did not want to wait, as it would mean she would never see the dog again. Her parents eventually decided that the best solution would be for the dog to live with her aunt and uncle, where both sisters could see her.
However, the young woman's aunt and uncle have imposed strict rules regarding her visitation with the dog. She is only allowed to see the dog once a week, and her uncle has stated that she cannot be alone with her sister or aunt when visiting.
This has left the young woman feeling hurt and frustrated, as her dog has been a source of comfort and happiness for her during difficult times.

She is hurt that she only gets to see the dog once a week
It is not technically an ESA, but she is to OP
OP posted some updates:
Some compromises were made, but OP is not happy
OP has offered the following explanation for why they think they might be the a-hole:
Don't you just love it?
OP is scary. But she probably doesn't believe so
The Lords work
The truth hurts
Missing missing reasons
Begging for sympathy.
The dog is better of this way...
The bottom line is:
Sadfishing is a term used to describe someone exaggerating their own emotional issues in an effort to gain sympathy from others. The expression is a play on "catfishing" and is often done by those experiencing difficult times or pretending to do so.
It seems that OP is addicted to it, as Redditors report seeing her post frequently. The majority of the comments suggest that the person is being unreasonable and selfish in their desire to have their dog with them at all times.
Many people point out that there are times when it is not appropriate or safe to have a dog present, such as in certain restaurants or during air travel. Others suggest that the person is prioritizing their own desires over the well-being of their dog, who may be stressed or uncomfortable in certain situations.
The dog is better off with her aunt and uncle.
