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.

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.

I knew about Reno passing but just seen this thread.  I loved that little cutie.  Reno is the reason I met Jeef and Sue, and I will always be thankful for that.

Every time I see a furry friend riding with their owner I always think of our little "Chick Magnet", Reno.  

Miss ya ...
