Reagan is Joshua Winston’s beagle-bulldog mix puppy. He is just a few months old at the outset of After the Republic. It goes without saying that Joshua, a former legislator, named the puppy after his favorite President, Ronald Reagan.
Reagan is jittery as a puppy, but has already taken to Joshua and Rebecca. He is loyal and is quite a watchdog.
Reagan is the literary reincarnation of Gabe, a very cool dog who belonged to the author’s family (pictured at right). Gabe is now guarding the pearly gates against intruders.
