I don’t approve of people suggesting making the dog sick. This is crazy. Also on another point my dogs shared my popsicles when I was a kid and I’m still alive. Lol. That being said leave the dog at home. Or they could just leave the dog in a bedroom and have the owners let it go potty periodically. But probably best at home or a boarding facility.

With any luck at all, the results will convince the owner that future events are too much trouble.
What a HORRIBLE cowardly suggestion! Make the dog suffer for something it didn't even have control over. Disgusting.

You say your home is too small. People with small homes have parties. It is called renting a banquet room.

I think you are the only one that cares about the dog. Like I said in a previous post it is better than a damn cat. Those are the ones climbing around the kitchen cabinets and counter.

.
This post implies that the host does not want the dog there either but is too chicken to tell their dog owning "close relative" that the dog is not welcome.

Then it sounds like you have no other choice but to suck it up and enjoy the party.

Exactly, that response made no sense.

It's a family gathering so she clearly knows other people, and sounds like they all live in fairly close proximity to one another, surely someone else could drive her.

Hard to believe someone(and a regular on the board) would even suggest something so awful.

And considering she is the guest of honor... I would think everyone at the party would know her.

What would happen if the OP became sick on the day of the party, or couldn't go for some other reason? Would they just cancel it? That seems unlikely...

The idea that dogs "suffer with diarrhea" from eating ice cream or whipped cream is so much BS.

They don't cramp up, don't howl in pain, don't even whimper They have loose stools and go on about their business.

It's the owners who have the problem, not the dogs.

Get real.
