Custody battles for dogs and pets are becoming more common and mainstream now with people treating their pets more like family members but what makes this custody battle so unusual is that it’s not actually over dogs but over dogs’ sperm.  Yup, you read that right, a divorced couple who operated a dog breeding business is battling it out in court over some doggy sperm.

Now, I know this is not funny or amusing to them, Karen and Anthony Scully who divorced in 2002, are very serious about this but it even took the judge off guard.

When the couple showed up in court last week and laid things out, Family Court Judge Cheryl Matthews of Oakland County Circuit Court in Pontiac initially actually thought it was some kind of a joke or prank.

“I asked, ‘Am I Being Punk’d?'” Matthews said. “I said, ‘Is this a ‘Candid Camera’ thing?'”

In the end Judge Matthews decided it was a civil matter and passed it off to civil court, although she actually, if you can believe it, dealt with an issue like this before!

Now that I’ve shared this I can stop snickering alone.  I know, I know, it’s not funny to them, but c’mon!  I’d fight tooth and nail before I’d give one of my babies up, but doggy sperm??  Guess if you’re a breeder…. 🙄
