Virtual Mailbag: Who Gets the Dog in the Breakup?
Pets can take it just as hard as kids in a breakup. How do you decide who gets the furry buddy?
Christine writes The Wake Up Call:
Dear Eric and Selena,
My boyfriend and I just broke up over the weekend. We’ve been living together for about a year, and now we have to go through the hard part of dividing things up. Our personal items like the tv and furniture are pretty much figured out, but we can’t agree on one big thing: our dog.
We got our pug Chewy when we started living together. It was our first big decision we made together. We both love and take care of the dog equally. I think Chewy should stay in his familiar setting – in the apartment with me (it was my place before we started dating). My ex doesn’t think it’s fair – if he has to move out, he feels he should get the dog.
How do we decide? Are we seriously going to have to have doggy visitation rights?
