199. Keeping the dogs together would be my choice. It's a matter of concern for the animals. Animals, especially dogs, are more loyal to one person for their entire lives. If this is the case, both dogs should stay with the person they are loyal to, rather than separated. We have cats and 1 dog. If we ever split up, hubby would get the dog. The cats would unequivically be mine, as they have been with me since day 1. Same goes for the dog, she is loyal to hubby.
