Godspeed Mango

Our hearts are breaking and we are so sad today.  Mango was one of our oldest and dearest friends and now he's crossed the Rainbow Bridge to be with angel Maggie and so many others. 

This was always one of our favorite pictures of you, Mango.  You were always so much fun and each time we visited your blog, we went away smiling or laughing.   Blogville can never be the same without you. 

Look not where I was
For I am not there
My spirit is free
I am everywhere

In the air that you breathe
In the sounds that you hear
Don't cry for me Mom
My spirit is near

I'll watch for you
From the other side
I'll be the one running
New friends by my side

Smile at my memory
Remember in your heart
This isn't the end
It's a brand new start

By: Carol Kufner

Our thoughts and prayers go out to MangoMomma and Master and Dexter. 

Our hearts ache for you - We love you.

Mitch, Molly and Sue

This was a Most Wonderful tribute to our Most Special Mango. His absence will be felt throughout Blogville for a long time to come. But we know that beautiful Miss Maggie was there to greet him at the Bridge and show him around the place so that makes us feel a little better knowing that she's there to take care of him.

Gentle wiggles and wags,

We think Maggie might have gotten first licks in when he bounced across that Bridge...

So many friends there now...but then we have the little Molly's with puppy teeth and their lives all ahead of them...

Typing through the tears. Thank you for that poem. It is hard, but that's because he was such a good dog and good friend to me.
