Robert Pattinson takes his dogs and hits the road (X17Online.com)Affairs of the heart aren't easy, especially in Hollywood. Just ask Robert Pattinson.
While rumors started circulating over the weekend that he and longtime girlfriend Kristen Stewart have called it quits again (last summer, anyone?), photos of the "Cosmopolis" star engaged in manual labor would definitely suggest he's no longer living with his former "Twilight" co-star.
Though this particular couple often keeps us guessing, we can't help but notice some rather overt and dramatic clues in pictures snapped of Rob leaving Stewart's home in Los Feliz, California. Here are a few dead giveaways that Pattinson has probably packed up for good ...
Custody of the dogs. Bear and Bernie, the rescue pups that are often photographed with one or both of the stars, rode shotgun with Rob as his pickup pulled away from Stewart's house in photos taken by X17 Online.

Trust us, there are easier ways to transport your belongings.

The trash bags. Nothing screams "available" quite as loud as the single man's luggage set — about a dozen trash bags with plastic red handles. Save for one beat up suitcase, Pattinson deploys the college mode of transporting one's band T-shirts and, we hope, the odd Gucci suit. It might be a good example of living simply — but it's anything but subtle.

The slow and painful city sign goodbye: In a genius frame, one photographer even caught Pattinson driving right past the "Los Feliz" sign, with the dogs, the truck, the trash bags, and most likely a heavy heart.
