Twitter user Tommy Rivers had to house-sit for his aunt, who laid down the most extensive rules when it came to taking care of her dog, Pepper. The rules were so specific, in fact, that Tommy just had to tweet them, and his aunt’s rules received more than 174K likes and 57K retweets.
Tommy’s aunt made the rules for Pepper fairly clear: Feeding, Snacks, Play Time, and Affection. And then there was the list of “Don’ts.”

The Snacks rule is especially telling.
“No carbs. Dog bone every other day.”
And this rule: “Send photo of Pepper every day so I can see she’s okay. Face Time with Pepper so I can talk to her.”

The list of Don’ts are the clincher.
“Don’t yell at pepper. Don’t let her escape—know where she’s at At all times.” Don’t hit, spank or kick Pepper—Don’t you hurt her!”
And the biggest rule of all? “Don’t you hate her cause you ain’t her!”
