Using his own life story as a backdrop, David T. Pisarra, shares his experience of sharing a dog in What About Wally? and how it helped bring closure and healed the hurt of a broken heart.
With a lifetime of providing service to thousands of pet owners Steven May has been the third co-parent to their pet children, providing compassionate advice and support for those who are living with separation issues.
Breaking up is difficult, and when you share a dog with another person, how your ex treats the dog is a major concern. Our dogs become like our children, and we want "the ex" to treat them with the same love, respect and care that we do.
Sharing a dog can be a very rewarding experience, and often it is the first major step a couple takes towards parenting. People bond to each other by getting a puppy. When the relationship changes, the shared love of a dog can heal the hurt. Changes in a romantic relationship are painful, but they do not effect the love that each person has for the dog. What about Wally? is not just a how-to guide on shared pet parenting, but a tool to help mend a broken heart.
Combining the life experiences of a divorce lawyer and a pet expert, we teach the vital principles of co-parenting, mutual respect and the value of a clear parenting plan. We help you learn to share a dog effectively with your soon-to-be-ex.
