It was a brief rally, Gypsy was doing well and then about 9pm on May 30, 2012, she had a seizure and didn't come out of it. At 10:30p I had to say my last goodbye to this brave little girl. With the help of my sister-in-law, Gypsy went to play with Elvis and Lucky. She will surely be missed I loved her so very much for the short time I had her. She can run and play and see the world once again. She spent her last four years with us, she was 16 years old. I will miss her greatly but look forward to seeing her, Elvis and Lucky again at the rainbow bridge! Good bye my sweet Gypsy I will love you forever.
Tanner : in memory of one of my favorite rescues and placements, he was loved by everyone who met him!
RIP Sweet Girl!

DeDe's Story: On January 23, 2010, Dede boarded a small plane headed for Reno Nevada. In her 12 years of life she had been rescued twice and later surrendered by her adopters. Her first adopter had to surrender her after suffering a traumatic head injury and could no longer care for her. Her second adopter was deployed to Afganastan and the family he left behind could not continue to care for her. The second time occuring just a few months ago. As she deplaned in Stead Nevada and began her life with Northern Nevada Shiba Rescue, they noticed she had difficulties relieving herself. Attributing this to the small plane and possible stress, they watched her closely for a few days. Realizing that this condition was not improving, she was taken in for a complete examination. It was then that we discovered multiple tumors, in her bladder, urinary tract and mammory glands. At 4:30pm on January 26, 2010, she was assisted across the Rainbow Bridge. It is with great sadness and much love that we remember DeDe.
Yoko came to NNSR with her brother Ono, They were adopted by a wonderful
family who gave them both a very fulfilled life. Yoko lost her battle
with cancer in late 2012 and took her journey over the rainbow bridge.
She was a very sweet soul who will be very missed by NNSR, Ono (now
Kenji), and her adopting family.
