Be thinking of something else your husband holds in very high regard. When you get to the mediation phase of the divorce, try to swap. In the meantime, try to keep the dogs in your possession.
Fortunately, my husband wanted none of the 9 horses, llama, or three cats. His attorney did want the horses sold and the proceeds split 50/50. That was very quickly over with when my attorney explained the flawed logic with that. The horse market is horrible due to the economy. He said we could do that, if my husband was willing to pay half of the feed bill, vet, farrier, and help with their daily care. That was the end of it. It involved sacrifice on his part. Therefore, keep up with the dogs' expenses and care.
