We have a 3 year old, and her sister lives 15 miles away. For several months after getting her, we got them together regularly for play dates; but then they developed other priorities. Now they want to get together again. Is there likely to be any recognition after 2.5 years?

They may recall each other. If they are both females I would not do it. Females can be very snarky and territorial as the mature and these two dogs are no longer puppies.

Usually litter mates do NOT remember each other and Bitches absolutely do not remember their own puppies when separated at a young age. Nature's way.

I have an opinion based on a single event, so take it with a grain of salt.

When I was young, I had a beagle. When he was about three years old, we had an opportunity to go rabbit hunting with his mother and two of his siblings. Even if you don't care for shooting rabbits, spending a day in the woods with a small pack of beagles is a memorable experience.

There is no question in my mind that Charlie's family recognized him. Once we got into the woods, though, the other hounds were all business, while my beagle acted like the pampered family pet that he was.

Im not sure to be honest, my friend has the brother to one of our dogs. We never put the together just incase they do turn on eachother. They are terriers so you never know. We feel the same as you though, like it would be nice, but could end up in a fight.
