Who's right and who's wrong - AITA?

We spend way too much time browsing the AITA forum on Reddit, especially the dog themed questions. So we thought we'd share some interesting ones with you.

Do you agree with host Julie's take on these canine conundrums? Dog owner ask whether they're in the right or wrong for choosing their dog over their friend in need, because their dog pooped on the pavement in front of a cafe, and for giving their sister photos of their dog as a Christmas present.

Non dog owners seek opinions on having scolded their daughter for letting their girlfriend's puppy escape, for confronting a couple whose dog sniffed them at a pub, and for not caring that their friend's dog ate potentially dangerous plants in their garden.

There's very little as interesting as other people's business, and with these stories you don't even have to feel guilty for eavesdropping or pushing your nose in where it's not wanted because these people actively want your take on their tales!
