On the r/relationships subreddit, one Reddit user shared a story about her tough situation when her desire to visit her sister-in-law's new baby was met with demands to get rid of her dog first.

However, because she's worried about infections from the OP's dog, she laid down strict rules: if the OP wants to visit her nephew at her sister-in-law's house, she must wash and change her clothes.
