Holiday Havoc: Man vs. Dog 🎇

In a dramatic turn of events, our 'Dogged Defender' found himself at odds with his family after refusing to let his sister-in-law's so-called 'service dog' into his home. Despite pleas, excuses, and a sob story, he stood his ground, resulting in his sister-in-law having to undertake a five-hour drive home in the middle of the night. His family is furious, branding him a 'monster'. But was he just standing up for his rights, or did he take things too far? Let's see what the internet thinks of this doggone debacle... 🐶💔
