It is a moral conundrum: if a dog is a man's best friend, should its health take precedence over the wants of a human fiancée? Alternatively, should the ability to save an animal's life be prioritized over buying flowers and stuff for a party?
An engaged couple are having a ruff ruff time (I'm sorry!!!!) after the groom-to-be dipped into wedding funds to afford life-saving surgery for his German Shepard.
Posted it in Reddit's Relationship Advice forum, a groom-to-be with the username Unsurebigbig is, well, unsure.
My dog (German Shepard) began acting strangely a few months ago. First couple vet visits didn’t show anything until eventually we felt a large lump under his fur which was later identified as a tumor. It was confirmed to be malignant and required surgery to remove completely.
The vet I spoke to said it would likely cost over $5000 to remove it completely and there’s no guarantee it will be a success. I don’t know why the cost was so high, but it didn’t matter to me. My dog is my dog and there is no question in my mind that paying for the surgery was the right thing to do.
