John Mulaney's Dog Petunia the Talk of the Town since His Divorce
John Mulaney's dog Petunia Tendler-Mulaney has been at the center of a lot of fan discussions.
Mainly because they were concerned about what would happen to the French bulldog following Mulaney's divorce.
Mulaney and his wife, Anna Marie Tendler, revealed their decision to part ways in early 2021 after they were together for six years.
Going by Tendler's statement, it was Mulaney's decision to end the relationship. However, he has since announced to the press that he will not make any further comments on the matter.

The Saturday Night Live star and his ex-wife did not have any kids from their marriage, but they did share Petunia, who they consider their baby too, or so Mulaney implied in an episode of The Pete Holmes Show.
Petunia is somewhat of a celebrity herself and boasts a respectable 161 thousand plus followers on her Instagram as of this writing.
The canine diva's profile is filled with adorable snaps of herself with a few snaps of her dog parents scattered in the mix.
She has also been heavily featured as a character in Mulaney's stand-up sets and talk-show interviews.
Fans Were Concerned
Now that Mulaney and Tendler were parting ways, fans took to Twitter to express their concerns for the adorable bulldog. One user questioned who was going to keep Petunia after the divorce.
The emotion was not exclusive to that one user, though, because as of this writing, the tweet has amassed over twenty thousand likes.
Another fan added,
Why is no one asking the most important question about John Mulaney and Anna's divorce?? WHAT IS GONNA HAPPEN TO PETUNIA?!
Yet another fan implied that they were crying over the thought of a custody battle between Mulaney and Tendler.
