Warren had grown up with dacshunds, and when he was ready to get his first dog, he wasn’t sure what he wanted. Sam and Warren were next door neighbours at the time, and since he knew sam was a “dog person”, he asked her to come with him to look at a litter of Sheltie mix puppies.

One of those pups was Reyna.

Reyna loved hiking, chasing sticks, rocks and anything else you would throw.

When she grew old, Reyna moved in with Warren’s mom and dad in Woodland, California, as the winters in Montana were getting too hard on her.
