What Happens to Rover When the Marriage is Over?
And Other Doggone Legal Dilemmas
By Patti Lawson
Recipient of the Maxwell Award for Dog Humor Book of the year (Dog Writer’s Association) for her first book,
The Dog Diet.
Ten years ago, the term “animal law” hardly existed: it wasn’t used by lawyers, judges, courts, or even animal rights associations. Today, animal law is well-recognized, with both the American and Canadian bar associations devoting full chapters to the subject. If you are one of the 56.7 million American households with at least one dog, how can you be sure that you know all the laws that apply to your furry family members?
What Happens to Rover When the Marriage is Over? (Skyhorse Publishing; September 2016; 978-1-5107-1153-2; $24.99) is a witty, informative, and no-nonsense look at the everyday situations and issues—and their legal consequences—that affect dogs and their owners. Dished up with a good deal of humor, heart, and pragmatic counsel, every chapter covers a different issue that dogs and their pet parents may face at some time.

Author Patti Lawson presents these issues conversationally—not couched in legalese—so every pet parent, grandparent, or sibling will know what to expect. With real-life stories and real court cases, this book covers topics people rarely think to ask about or research—until it’s too late:
 Fighting city hall when a dog runs afoul of the law
 The rights of pet parents to take their dogs on public transportation
 Providing for a canine companion after an owner’s death
 Keeping custody of their pet should they divorce or separate
 Confiscation of a pet by a humane officer if they violate a city ordinance
 Housing rights and those of their dog
 Breed-specific legislation
This is the go-to guide for keeping your pooch out of the pound and you out of court. Not to mention, it’s just plain fun to read!
