Man calls off wedding after fiancée accidentally almost kills his dog

The 28-year-old, who had been engaged for 6 months, revealed how an incident involving his 7-year-old lab mix, who he described as "the greatest dog in existence," nudged him to call off their wedding. 

Having spent 4 years together, a man decided to pop the question but one event made him rethink his decision of marrying a 27-year-old woman. Taking to Reddit, the 28-year-old revealed that he had been engaged for 6 months but an incident involving his 7-year-old lab mix, who he described as "the greatest dog in existence," nudged him to call off their wedding. 

"On Saturday, fiancée had a bachelorette party at home. I stayed with my parents but I left the dog with her because she likes having him there. However, I made sure to tell her to put the dog in our bedroom once the party gets going," he wrote. But his worst fears came true when he received a frantic call the following morning about his pet. 

"5 a.m. on Sunday I get a frantic call that something's wrong with the dog. She was drunk, so I told her to get a taxi and go to the emergency vet clinic. When I got there, she looked like she hadn't stopped crying for hours and she couldn't even speak. Two of her friends were there so they told me my dog is alive but not well. I felt sorry for her for an entire 10 minutes while waiting for the doctor," he noted, adding that the reason behind his dog's condition made him furious.

"But then, the doctor told me my dog ingested large amounts of alcohol and chocolate edibles. The girls apparently thought it would be cool to leave everything out on short coffee tables, leave the dog to wander around instead of putting him in our bedroom, and then get wasted and not notice he was going to town with the booze and edibles," he shared.

Having had enough of her reckless behavior, u/mydogismygod asked his fiancée to "get out of my house and my life. I told her to tell her guests the wedding is off, and I'll tell mine. She was shocked, but she took her things and left." Hours later, every one from his parents to siblings as well as his friends agreed that he was making a mistake. "My mom said: 'Well, it was a mistake, she didn't do it on purpose, besides - the dog didn't die!' Lucky me, eh? My dog didn't fucking die! My sister was appalled that I canceled the wedding 'over that?!'" he recalled.

"But I am so disgusted at my fiancée that I can't even imagine looking her in the eye, let alone spending my whole life with her. She isn't fucking 17, she is 27!" wrote OP, adding that "this is not the first dumb thing she has done." Apparently, she habitually dabbles in some dangerous practices. "She likes to text while driving, she always leaves stuff on the electric stove (like kitchen towels, the cutting board etc.) even though she has turned on the wrong burner and burnt whatever was on it several times in the past, and similar DANGEROUS things," he revealed.

Although he claimed not to have held any of this against her, he did express his concern, " I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried that she might end up killing herself or someone else. For example, my dog." In an edited response, he added the whole thing was not about his dog but his ex-fiancée's carelessness. 

"She is negligent and irresponsible and I don't want to stick around and possibly see our child die in a car accident someday because she was texting or she forgot to put his seat belt on. I'd rather be an asshole now than spend years of my life worrying every time our child is left alone with her. If she'd accidentally killed a person while texting and driving, I would also leave her. I guess I realized I don't want to spend my life with someone who has such blatant disregard for human (or animal) life," he shared. 

While Redditors felt that the OP overreacted, most agreed that whatever he did was indeed right.
