GOTD: Just got back from Africa to find that my sister took my dog to the vet while I was gone and had his nails clipped. I have a real dog, not some pampered purse pooch. He digs up gophers and kills squirrels with those nails.
Dear Sis, how would you like it if I were babysitting your kid and you come home to find that I took him to the doctor and got him circumcised while you were gone? And then I tell you that you really should be thanking me because you really should have had it done by now. And then ask you to fucking PAY for it?!?

I'm assuming this was a permanent claw removal, which is more like taking off the tip of your finger than just trimming a nail that will come back later
like I trim my cat's nails, but would never think of removing the claws themselves. that's just cruel.

No, it was just nail clipping not removal but that still can be very painful for a dog depending on the skill of the person doing the clipping. Just a bit too close and they bleed. Not to mention the trauma of being carted to the vet by a stranger.
As far as the comparison fail goes, that dog is my baby, so, for me, the comparison holds. Sis got a little scratch on her pant leg when my dog jumped up looking for attention. She shouldn't make my dog pay for that. And she just did it without asking. That really bugs me.
Unless you specifically told her not to, this is one of the things that good dog watchers do. If you have proof that it was a shoddy job, it'd be a different story.
