It is with a heavy heart that I post this farewell to our WWR mascot Reno.

Many of you know that he was with us on hundreds of PGR then WWR missions, Operation Welcome You Home, Soldiers Guardian Angels, Moms Cookies and even some of the infamous "Black Ops" missions.

Reno logged 10's of thousands of miles on the bike until the last year or so when his health took a turn for the worse.

Today he passed on to the Rainbow Bridge.

Amazing that such a small dog can leave such a big empty hole in your heart.


GODSPEED "Bean", you touched the hearts of many and will be missed.

sorry to hear of the loss of the WWR Mascot.....my heart hurts for you....












MaMa Kat
I feel a warmth around me
like your presence is so near,
And I close my eyes to visualize
your face when you were here,
I adore the times we spent together
and they are locked inside my heart,
For as long as I have those memories
we will never be apart,
Even though we cannot speak no more
my voice is always there,
Because every night before I sleep
I have you in my prayer.

After hearing this I gave my dog Dingo a hug and maybe shed a tear or two.  He of course proceeded to clean my face.  How do they KNOW?!?!?   But then I smiled remembering how he loved to ride....

I remember once idling at a stoplight on a mission in heavy traffic and seeing a van full of (I dunno) cheerleaders or something and they are all smiling and pointing at me (or so I thought).  Then I noticed Jeef and Susana and RENO were idling alongside me.  Of course they were lookin' at the little dog with biker goggles and leather instead of me..

Anybody got a pic handy of Reno Riding??  

What a great dog.

So sorry for your loss.

Our hearts are heavy and we send our love to you, Jeef and Susana.  No matter who was at a mission Reno was always the one that attracted the largest crowd. We always knew where the three of you were and we loved it. Farwell little "Chick Magnet" you'll always be in our hearts....

Rest in Peace Reno

It's amazing how a dog's love is unconditional.  Reno had a big heart for such a little guy.
I believe there is a place in heaven for our little friends.  
God bless.
