devi514:  i wouldn’t get to upset about it. Seems like this is your Friends way of doing things. She doesn’t even take care of her dog well from what you have said so i wouldn’t expect her to go pick up your dogs poop. Just brush it off. In the end she will argue it’s your dog and even though you do stuff for her all the time she may make u out to be the bad person.  Just keep doing wht you are doing.

No you are a very generous roomate she on the other hand isn’t. Maybe you can consider talking to her about the situation? In her mind she thinks your dog, your problem. Some people are just like that.

She probably just figured that your pup, your problem.  Next time something like that happens, say something right back to her?  “Can you just pick it up and toss it before pup steps in it?”  If she is a bitch and say no, then you can fire back with “look, I don’t leave your dogs piss on the floor everyday for you to get home and clean, you can help me out once in a while too.”

Is this typical behavior for her? If it’s a one-off thing, I’d give her the benefit of the doubt, maybe she was running really late or just having a bad morning. But if this is typical for her, I’d let her know that you’d apprecaite some reciprocaiton.

I would try what pinkshoes mentioned, although I would probably say something along the lines of “I often help you out with your dog, so I figured that you wouldn’t mind to help me out as well.”

devi514:  Given the unique circumstances of your situation, I think it was thoughtless of your roommie not to help you out on that one.  I think you are justified in being annoyed, but I’d try to let it go.

devi514: Is she aware that you clean her dog’s pee so often? I mean, I know she went to the vet already so she knows the dog pees a lot but do you tell her every time you had to clean it up while she wasn’t home?

I think the difference here is that you were in the room. You clean up her animal’s messes when she isn’t home and I am sure she does the same for your animal without mentioning it. If you were out of the house and she ignored the mess then fair enough but you were in the same room.

I wouldn’t get mad. Annoyed, yes. It simply sounds like she is unaware. It isn’t worth starting an argument but should be addressed.  I would just casually mention it so you can be on the same page going forward. You made me think of this:
