Her Neighbor’s Dog Got Into Her Backyard and Ate Her Food, but When It Got Sick, Her Neighbors Demanded She Pay the Vet’s Bill

A woman recently asked for some advice because her neighbors were insisting she pay their vet bills. Here’s what happened.

She lived in the country

A 28-year-old woman lived in a beautiful place out in the country. It was a rural area with few fences. Backyards were largely open.

One day, the woman invited some family over for lunch. She said, “There were my sister and her family, my brother and his wife, my boyfriend, and mine and his parents.”

It was such a nice day that they ate in the backyard, enjoying the sunshine and the good weather.

As it turned out, the woman made too much food, and they couldn’t eat it all. There were some chocolate desserts and fruit left over.

They decided to leave it

Rather than cleaning up right away, the woman decided to leave it so she and her family could focus on enjoying their time together.

She covered it up

The woman said, “I figured the food would probably be fine being left out for a little bit, and if not, it could just be thrown away. It was covered up, too.”

The family went for a walk down a pond on the woman’s land. They were gone for about half an hour..

When they returned, the woman noticed that the neighbor’s dog was on the table in the yard.

Not only that, but it had ripped off all the covers and was eating the leftover desserts, including the chocolate, something that’s very dangerous for dogs.

She ran for the neighbors

The woman immediately ran to get her neighbors so they could retrieve their dog, and they apologized for the mess and disruption.

They wanted to know

As they left, the neighbors asked what the dog had eaten. When the woman told them, they became worried and rushed the dog to the vet.

The woman said, “Their dog survived but needed extensive care and had racked up quite a bit in vet bills.”

They wanted her to pay

The neighbors demanded the woman foot the huge vet bill because the dog had eaten her food.

She suggested a compromise

The woman did feel guilty about leaving the food out, so she suggested she pay a quarter of the bill. She didn’t think it was fair to have to pay all of it. She said, “I told them if they hadn’t let their dog on my property, it wouldn’t have eaten my food.”

They said it was an accident

The neighbors countered that the dog hadn’t been let out on purpose; it was an accident, so it wasn’t their fault. She joked that they owed her money for the food, which they didn’t find funny.

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong to refuse to pay the vet bills after the dog ate the food she left out, or were her neighbors right to demand the money?

The internet responded

One person said, “The fact that the trouble the dog got into happened to be on your property doesn’t make you responsible here.”

Another person said, “As a dog owner, my dog is my responsibility. If the dog accidentally gets out (and it happens), that is on us. No one else.”
