Thanks for all of the great posts! We are going to take one of the dogs on Thursday. It will be a trial, but I'm sure it will work out. My friend has decided which dog she wants to keep, so we're getting the other one. I'm confident it will work out.
One question - does anyone know anything about submissive peeing? She said she does this when someone stands over her when you first get home or if someone new comes into the house and stands over her. But she says if you're aware of it and how you treat her when you enter, she doesn't do it. I'll have to research it a bit.
