Pet custody battles are becoming more and more common. When married pet owners divorce, the animal they shared often finds itself at the center of their split.

The Frisky Gift Guide: Your Awesome Four-Legged Friend

A Doggie Wedding Next Door!

The Frisky was on the way to lunch when we noticed that on the rooftop of the doggie daycare next door, a photo shoot was taking place! A wedding photo shoot! With puppies!

Kimora Lee Simmons’ Doggie Diamond

My dog, Lucca, had to go to the vet today which has got me thinking about what I would do if she didn’t come home — pets are like family and the only thing I love more than her is my fiancé. My mom and brother are third and fourth (sorry, guys!). So aside from…
