Your, Mine and Ours

Posted by Evan Weber on

Breakups can be tough, and the custody of a shared dog or cat can become a central issue when a couple separates or divorces, leading to anguish, arguments, and in some cases, a courtroom. In the eyes of the law, custody of your pet is not technically what a pet-owner should be expecting when they enter a courtroom. In all 50 states, animals are considered property, and many judges will not grant custody of a pet but rather award him as property.

Posted by Evan Weber on

No one should ever expect a dog not to bark, but while some dogs cannot bark, others seem to bark excessively. If this is a problem in your home, the first step to solving the problem is to figure out why he is barking. Not all dogs are apt to offer their opinions. While historically dogs have been prized for their ability to bark and warn away other animals and intruders, some breeds are on the quiet side.
