While any breakup is tough, couples who have been co-parenting an animal often have trickier issues to face.
Just ask Rebecca Budig, actress and star of All My Children. The beautiful brunette recently ended her five-year-marriage with former Bachelor Bob Guiney, and was left with the loss of both a husband and a dog, according to PeoplePets.com.
"You know how sometimes a pet tends to go to one person in the house more than anyone else? Well, that's how it was with Phoebe and Bob," Budig told the news source about her precious yellow lab, which went to live with Guiney after their split.
According to American Dog Magazine, pet custody battles are increasing every year. The news source advises individuals to be prepared to prove they are the sole caretaker of their cherished animal, with receipts and registry documents on hand.
Not surprisingly, it looks like Phoebe left quite the paw print on Budig.
"I am such an animal lover," she told the news outlet. "I will have a dog again, absolutely."
