Kramer vs. Kramer

Divorce can be a very upsetting thing for any canine. Many times they are not asked which parent they would like to continue living with. In fact, in all cases I know of, they were never given a choice at all. I think that’s crap.

As if that weren’t bad enough, a new law could make it even worse.

The bill would let couples specify, among other things, visitation rights and the right to move the animal out of state. If feuding spouses cannot agree on what to do with the pet, the solution is simple: a judge can either pick a spouse or ship it off to a local humane society or similar shelter.

So a judge gets to throw my furry butt in the slammer if my parents can’t decide on which one loves me more.

This is an important lesson for the dogs that are reading this. I urge you to pick a favorite parent early and stick with them. I’m not too proud to say that this is why I’ve been on my father’s side since the get go, through thick and thin…even during the periods when he has gastrointestinal issues. To be honest, those times actually made our bonds tighter but you catch my drift.


Got something to say?
