I was just wondering if any other Gns have this problem. My DD works part time 20 hours a week, as it's shift work I have Childcare duties at odd times.
(Which I do gladly) Early shifts start at seven, which require Dgd being dropped off at 6 30, no problem. Late shifts finish at 9pm. No problem again as Dgd stays with us overnight. No problem again.
But a big problem has arisen.......... She has purchased a very large dog, German shorthaired pointer, as a puppy he was very sweet but we did say to her we would not be dog sitting. But, he is has grown into a very boisterous and undisciplined dog. She expects us to care for this dog while she is at work and it's causing a great deal of stress. I am unable to manage him on a walk and DH has to take him,which requires him to take time off work to do this. (He works from home). We have spoken to DD about this and told her to find alternative care ( which she can't afford) but her reply is that she will need to get rid of him. This is said in front of Dgd which results in floods of tears and pleading from this little six year old. DD tells us both she and Dgd would be heartbroken if they had to do this.
Catch 22 or blackmail. Not sure what to do, any suggestions please.
