It’s been about 2 months now and I wanted to let you know that Reagan is doing very well. She’s really come out of her shell, she’s a very happy dog, and very sweet. She weighs about 23 pounds now and looks fantastic.

She recognizes her name well and knows a few commands, we’re going to sign her up for a class soon. She loves to run and play in the backyard, especially when she’s chasing Emma (or Emma’s chasing her). They still fight a lot, and sometimes it’s rough, but it’s more like siblings bickering. I’m very happy to tell you that she really only gets in her bed when it’s time to go to sleep, she prefers to be in whatever room we’re in (although during the day she’d really rather be out back sunning herself).

When we first brought Reagan home she was very possessive of her toys. Over the next few weeks, she brought them out one by one to share, and now there are no toys left in her bed. Sometimes when we come home from work she and Emma are curled up together on the couch.

She is still not very fond of car rides, we’ve taken her to the dog park and she always gets very nervous in the car (and at the park). Now we let Emma run around for a while and then put them both on the leash for a walk around the outside. Reagan LOVES to go for a walk. She also likes to perch on the arm of the couch and take a nap, which is funny.
