A Tale of Love, Loss, and a Dog with a Taste for Literature 📚🐶

In a whirlwind of emotions, our book-loving heroine found herself at the center of a canine-induced catastrophe. Her anniversary gift, a cherished book, was reduced to a chew toy, leaving her heartbroken and angry. Despite the initial laughter and accusations of being dramatic, heartfelt conversations led to understanding and apologies. While the book was not replaced, our heroine found solace in the shared experiences of loss due to the destructive dog. The story ends with a peaceful resolution, a new plan to protect her belongings, and a newfound patience for her furry nemesis. 😅💔🐶

NTA but your boyfriend and his mother sure are. Anyone who laughs at you crying isn't worth your time. Your feelings obviously don't matter to him. Who cares if the book was only $20? It meant a lot to you but he just doesn't care. 😞
