She stated: “We have this dog, Jerry. He is an adorable sweetheart. He has such a sweet and gentle disposition and he doesn’t have an unkind bone in his body. I love him dearly.
“One month ago, Jerry, my husband and I were enjoying dinner together when I noticed something strange. My husband made an immediate face to confirm that it wasn’t me.
“I am pregnant and my sense of smell has been a little sensitive in this time.
“The smell was overwhelming and I left the room. My husband later told me that the dog had farted.
“It honestly smelled a little like rotten eggs. I thought it was a one-off because the dog does fart (as do we) but a fart this stinky isn’t normal.”
Try to forget about the “one-off smell”The incident occurred over several weeks. However, the woman continued her daily life as normal, although she was constantly sprayed with the overwhelming smell.
In an effort to mask the smell, she tried lighting candles and incense around her house. But, she gave up. “nothing worked”.
“This whole time I thought it was the dog and said ‘OK, I’m taking him to the vet. A fart this stinky isn’t normal’. Through all this my husband kept silent,”She added.
“My vet recommended a diet change for the dog so I change the diet but the stink continued.
“I was losing all my senses, but my husband kept his mouth shut. The vet was very confused and ordered several tests that would have to be expensive.
“All the tests showed that the dog was fine. I’m losing my mind here. My anxiety started kicking in – what if there’s something wrong with him? What if we lose him? I’m so stressed out.”
The woman spiraled into despair and finally broke down at the thought of her beloved dog.
After five long weeks, her husband finally admitted that he was blaming the dog for his foul smell.
She continued: “I lost it. I kicked him out of the house. He went to stay with his friends. All of our friends are on my side.
“To be clear, he did lie in the moment, but I understood that he knew we were going there to see a vet. The vet was confused.
“He even went to the vet appointment with me. It takes him a full on panic attack and mental breakdown to say the truth?
“His mother, who normally thinks the sun shines out his a**, is on my side as well. She calls him an idiot.”
After she cooled off a bit, she let her husband back into the house but told him to book an appointment with a doctor about his flatulence problems.
“He was also advised to make a change in his diet.” she added. “He was clear in telling me that I had to pay him back half of my vet bills from his “fun money”.
“He’s agreed but isn’t really happy about it. I don’t particularly care about his happiness right now to be honest.”
Reddit users were asked by her to share their thoughts on the unusual situation.
One user commented: “That was so cruel to the dog. How many times did the vet draw blood for these tests?
“Stressing your wife while she is pregnant for no reason is putting your baby at serious risk.
“He should pay all of the vet costs. He needs to grow himself some maturity before the baby gets here.”
Another user was added: “This was funny and sad at the same time. Is this the first time he has done something like this? His actions sound insane.”
Another said: “This too blows my mind. I’m usually not one to jump to conclusions and be dramatic, but who the hell lies to the person they married about a fart?
“Like if you can’t go to the bathroom or fart in front of your significant other unapologetically, then is it even a real relationship?
“I don’t know if it’s just me, but I wouldn’t marry someone I don’t feel that comfortable with. That sounds miserable having to feel like you need to hide that.”
