Now for the latest in dog sperm news

Divorce court no place for frozen dog sperm flap

PONTIAC, Mich. – The judge wondered if she was an unwitting participant in an episode of “Candid Camera” or “Punk’d.” Oakland County Family Court Judge Cheryl Matthews wasn’t. She just had a front-bench seat Wednesday for a feud between a divorced couple over who gets frozen sperm from bull mastiffs they bred in happier times.

When Anthony and Karen Scully split in 2002, they divvied up the six bull mastiffs they owned. He kept four; she took two. Now, they’re fighting over who owns the semen from Cyrus, Regg and Romeo that’s being stored at a center in Sterling Heights.

Matthews apparently didn’t think her court had a dog in this hunt. The Detroit Free Press reports she referred the case to civil court.</em>

“…who gets frozen sperm from bull mastiffs they bred in happier times.”

That just don’t sound right, does it?
