He Doesn’t Want to Go on The Family Vacation Because His Brother Is Bringing a Dog and He Doesn’t Think It’s ‘Appropriate’

A man asked Reddit if it would be wrong of him not to go on a family vacation because his brother wanted to bring his dog along. Here’s what the man had to say.

The family used to holiday together

Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, the man would often go on vacations with his family. These trips happened every year and included the man’s parents and his two younger siblings: his sister and his brother.

It’s been a while

For a multitude of reasons, however, the man and his family have not been on vacation since 2018.

The brother has a dog

The man is married, and he and his wife have a child that is 18 months old. His sister currently has a boyfriend, and though his brother does not have a partner that the man knows of, he has “some sort of terrier.”

He’s devoted to it

“My brother has morphed into a self-described ‘dog dad’ and, based on social media, seems to rarely do things without the dog,” he said.

In the few instances that the man has been around his brother’s dog, the animal has behaved OK. The dog is friendly, but the man said he doesn’t know what it is like around others or young children.

The man’s parents have a vacation booked in a beach house in Florida. The deadline for a full refund upon cancellation is in a few weeks. His parents need to know if the man, his brother, and his sister want to accompany them on their trip.

The entire family lives on the west coast, so they would be flying to Florida for their vacation.

Since hearing of the vacation, the man has learned that his brother plans to bring his dog on holiday. Although his parents are not overly thrilled about the idea, their words on the matter were: “It is what it is.”

“I’m not a dog person. I despise them on airplanes,” he said.“I don’t want to travel with the dog; I don’t want to stay in the same house as it; I don’t want to do dog-friendly activities, and I don’t want it around my son.”

His parents won’t help

The man’s parents want to stay out of the situation and hope that he and his brother can come to some sort of agreement.

His brother won’t budge

He broached the topic with his brother but soon discovered that he was not at all flexible on the idea of leaving his dog at home. The man’s brother feels that his dog is his family and, as such, should be welcome on a family vacation.

He then pointed out to the man that his 18-month-old son would be far louder and more annoying than his pet dog. The man knows his brother won’t budge and is therefore thinking of pulling out of the holiday all together. However, the vacation in its entirety may fall apart.

The man asked the internet for advice

“It’s a small dog, and you said it was well-behaved. It’s fair to ask the dog is kept away from the baby,” said one person.

“A baby is far more inconvenient than a dog. You can leave a dog home alone for a few hours if people want to eat at a nice restaurant.”
