Mango RH, In Memoriam

It was with the heaviest of hearts that Mom told us of our Relentlessly Huge friend Mango's crossing of the Rainbow Bridge early this morning.

Mango was one of our very first friends in Blogville, and over the intervening years we have had the honor of sharing many fantastic moments with him, including three years of Mango Minster, a fantastic date (well, we thought it was fantastic - the RH might have been a wee bit terrified), and many other adventures too numerous to mention.  Additionally, Mango introduced us to so many new friends who have enriched our lives.  Mom even found her super nerdy twin in Mango Momma.

The passing of Mango leaves a Relentlessly Huge hole in our hearts.  We can only imagine the reception the RH has received across the bridge from his many friends and fans who have gone before him.

While we only ever met you virtually, we feel that we knew you well, Mango.  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your life.  You will be missed, but your legacy will carry on for generations.

I'm so sorry to hear about Mango. It's never easy to lose a dog you've bonded with.

I've moved blogs and am just catching up on yours. I hope you're doing well!

We are heart-broken for Mango's Momma and family.

Murray loved him so much and Clive winning Mango Minster in 2010 was such a huge thing for Murray! He still talks about it and cherishes his Mango Minster trophy.

A very sad day.

take care
Clive & Co

Our hearts ache...it is such a shock...we could see his face graying and knew he couldn't be with us forever, but it took our breath away to hear the news.

Our love to Mango Momma, Master and the Pea...it has to be impossible...

Kisses,

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanny

OK, so I'm reading through blogs and crying my eyes out and then I get to that photo and for a minute I say "WTF? Did Fi and Abby meet Mango? Was I like totally drunk or something?" And then I bigified it and damn if it still wasn't almost seamless.

And then I laughed! And boy did it feel good. I laughed at that sly dog look on Mango's face all canoodling with your doodle gals. Well done and thank you so much.
