🐶 Family Torn Apart by Dog-Phobia: Will Auggie Have to Go? 😢

😱 Well, well, well... it looks like this modern-day Brady Bunch has found themselves in quite the predicament! With a dog-phobic stepdaughter who can't stand the sight of Auggie, the family's beloved golden retriever, tensions are running high. 🌡️ The poor girl is so terrified that she's been relegated to an expensive Airbnb just to avoid the furry family member. 💸 But now, the husband is putting his foot down and demanding that Auggie be given the boot! 🐾👢 The wife, however, is standing her ground, refusing to give up her precious pup for a part-time child. 🙅‍♀️ The accusations are flying, with the husband's family claiming she doesn't love her stepdaughter and is playing favorites. 😡 But wait, there's more! The situation has become even more dire, with the ex-wife's household falling apart and the stepdaughter needing a new home ASAP. 🏚️ The clock is ticking, and this family needs to find a solution fast. 😰 Will they be able to come to a compromise, or will Auggie be sent packing? 🐶😢 Let's see what the internet has to say about this ruff situation! 🌐

Keep the sweet pup. Therapy for kid. Living scared is miserable.
