Hello, Iâ€™m new here but Iâ€™m currently up at 1:20 Am, feeling terribly guilty and sad because of my baby. My fiancÃ© and I had to make a 3 hour trip for an appointment and we put our lab, Sara, in her crate before we left, assuming weâ€™d be back in about 6/7 hours and that we could let her out and feed/water her then. Well, the weather got bad and we couldnâ€™t make it home today and we had to get a hotel room for the night because it was completely dangerous for us to attempt to drive. We wonâ€™t be home until about noon tomorrow which will have made it 24 hours of her being in her crate. I know she will live, but she will have definitely used the bathroom in her crate and will be hungry & thirsty. I had no way of knowing this was gonna happen or I wouldâ€™ve made arrangements for her. Am I a terrible, cruel pet parent for this incident? Has anyone else been in a situation like this before?
