Dogs, Celebrities & Custody Battles IV:

Grace, my wife and Gizmo's co-owner, has never been in a custody battle
over Gizmo or any other animal.

            Britney Spears, while she was in her downward spiral, lost custody of her children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, in 2007 to Kevin Federline.   When she attempted to also take control of her dogs, animal rights activists took sides and asked Federline to have custody of the dogs as well.

         After that, the readers of two magazines, New York Dogt and Hollywood Dog, voted Ms. Spears the worst celebrity dog owner.

         While splitting up after six months of marriage, both Drew Barrymore and Tom Green wanted Flossie, a yellow Labrador.   In 1998 the dog became a hero when it alerted the couple by barking and somehow banging on the bedroom door that the house was on fire, saving their lives. 
         Barrymore won custody of the dog.  When Flossie died in 2010, Barrymore spread her ashes across the Ganges River in India.
