And now they are eating from the same bowl. xD

Be careful with the blanket sucking (I'm assuming these are dogs). One of our girls does it and became extremely obsessive with it. We had to stop her doing it as she and our other unspayed girl had a massive fight over it once or twice and it became a very big source of tension between them. I would take the blanket off her and stop her doing it.
We found our girl would do it for hours at a time and it didn't strike us as a particularly healthy habit. Although our girl would let me come over and do whatever while she was sucking.
Also be careful of two girl dogs fighting. B,itch - B,itch aggression can escalate incredibly quickly and once two girls hate each other they can never be left unsupervised together as it is not unknown for one to be killed or seriously injured.
Now we have two unspayed girls living together we can really see it. As soon as one comes into or out of heat you have to be right on top of even a sideways glance as that's all it can take for a fight to start.
Otherwise when they are playing or in the car or going for walks they are fine.
My mum got her leg bitten (she fell down the stairs with the dogs while they were fighting so one caught her by accident) last time they fought.
We don't let our dogs resource guard. I have found in the past that is the biggest starter of fights. Because you just know the other dog is itching to come and take whatever is being guarded.
