    Default Nin died :(

    Probably old news on here, but I didn't see anything about it until today.

    He died on July 14th

    Saw this on another forum, so sad.

    I had the honor of seeing Nin twice on the summit. Thank you Nin, for letting me scratch your ears that time.

    May you play with Inga in the clouds.

    I met Nin during a winter overnight trip back in 07. Nin sat on my lap while I scratched his head. Every time I stopped Nin politely nudged me to continue petting him. I'm glad I got a chance to meet Nin before he retired and he will be missed.

    Bummer... I used to play with Nin on the night shift, playing hide-and-seek on the state park side.

    It was nice of Mike and Diane to take in Nin in his retirement... I always figured Sunshine would be the one.

    Default Nin

    I had the pleasure of cooking Nin his last Thanksgiving dinner on the summit.

    Nin waits with his friend Red while Chris carves the turkey.


    Boy, did he love turkey! Photo by Lynn-tern, (Thanks!)


    What do you do after eating a big turkey dinner?

    I'll miss you, old buddy!

    Default Nin...

    I was so upset to see that Nin passed away. I feel like I did when I lost my my kittys. I always looked forward to seeing what Nin was doing. Never had the chance to meet Nin, only saw pictures on the OBS website.
    Nin will be missed by all.
    Marty has big "paws" to fill....( tho Marty has had some memorable adventures since being on the mountain)
    Rest easy Nin.
