Memories of Mango

Dear Ones,
      Today we lost a friend.     Mango has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
      He has left us with so many Rentlessly HUGE and Precious Memories.   He will be TEACHING Students who will help many in the future.   What a LEGACY.  
      Mango my MAN among MEN, I want to say that you LIGHTENED and BRIGHTENED our world.  
      Til we meet again...  Run FREE and FAST .
              Sincerely,
                      Your Little LEGLESS Furend, Frankie Furter
                         Ernie
                           Lana

We would ask that anyone commenting here... PLEASE tell us YOUR Favorite Memory or Story of the BIG GUY.   

Mine is...   Having the HONOR of being Best of Show Judge and My ARRIVAL at the Estate for my Sea Questering in Mr. Master's Workshop.     THAT HUGE Snow Pile that you...  DUMPED me in...    Was COLD and VERY VERY DEEP.

We loved the time we flew him out to Park City for a date with us. We may have scared him a wee bit, but it was a most pawsome adventure, and one that we will never forget. The RH will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

I liked to consider myself a mini-Mango since we both have slobbers and jowls and crazy Mammas. I really looked up to Mango. My mamma is very upset since Mango was truly her kind of dog for sure.

Sarge said...

I'm mostly barkless about this. So very filled with sadness.
My bestest memories are of his humor...loved the slobber. Loved his relentless teasing of Dex ... labradork, labradinky, labracooties, labradunce etc etc.

I just don't even knows what to say cuz not only will da words not come out...I think I is still in shock overs his passin'.

But I did get a chuckle out of rememberin' Mango callin' you legless. I always lauged at dat. He always called me Miss Puddles. And I remember how disgusted he was when his momma painted da room purple. And if t weren't fur him...I would never has a birdie house.
I have so many many many awesome memories of Mango and I will always cherish them.

Lots of things flash through my mind when I think about Mango but mostly I see him tryin to dance with his Momma. I also remember searching high and low for anything and everything "Mango" related! We have a city near us called "Mango" and every time we drive through that city, I'll think about our Relentlessly Huge Buddy!

Sarge said...

Amber is right...everything Mango-like was a popular thing with all of us. My peeps went to a Chinese restaurant this past Fri night and inside Mom's fortune cookie, the fortune was on one side and on the other was the Chinese word for Mango. We chuckled about it and the slip is sitting next to Mr Dell. It was going to be my Snicker Saturday post for MRH.
I will post it tomorrow to honor our furiend.

Oh, Frankie and Ernie, we're so sad. We just can't believe he left us so soon.

I always liked how he flirted with me. Heehee! Oh, I know he flirted with ALL the lady-dogs but he always had a way of making me blush right through my brindle furs.

Gentle wiggles & wags,
Mayzie

We are so sad about this loss too - a huge loss for our bloggie-world, as well as for Mango's special Momma.
Our favourite memory is of his 'Adventure to Africa' in 2010. We had such a fun 5 days.

Madi and Mom said...

Mom and I didn't know Mango very well but what we do remember is the first time we visited his blog the first words out of Mom's mouth were
"Oh my gosh, he is the most beautiful gentle giant we have ever seen". At the time mom had never seen his breed in person and lo and behold a few days later she saw a brindle just like Mango at the park. She asked permission to pet him and OMDs what a treat...she smiled big and said I have a friend named Mango who looks just like you.
Hugs Madi and Mom

Madi and Mom said...

PS Mango was a good will ambassador for his breed for sure!!

We join you, and all of the dog-blog world, in mourning Mango's untimely passing.

Sweet William The Scot said...

Mango probably the only intact dog of blogville. Mango had his lipstick showing alot! Mango had a vido up once of him exercising in a tank of water at the little animal hospital. Little NOT Exercising NOT. He gave us a good laugh. Neuticals his size cost a lot of money!

Our favourite has to be the 'agility' demonstration in the woods...always gives us a smile when we think of it.

Amazing that tears are being shed all around the world.

Mango had a wit that was just so special and we just loved when he gave PeeWee a hard time, which was always!
We're sure going to miss him.

Scrappy said...

I always considered him a gentle giant. His facial expressions would melt my heart.

He will be missed by so very many.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Mr Frankie, our hearts are breaking but we have such wonderful memories of our Uncle Mango. He was one of a kind and will be loved and missed forever. We always laughed with him and our special memory is the love he had for his family. RIP big dude. You were one of a kind mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Favorite memory? Oh so hard...I think Mango dancing in the Nutcracker and me um well burning down the theater in Boston...

Mumsie forgot about the pilfered towels wrapped around her waist the day we visited at the Estate...many asked to borrow them to wipe of the DROOL!!

Thanks for letting us share and smile...

Kisses,

Lacie Beastie and her stoopid brothers.

Minna Krebs said...

Mango was such a Relentlessly Huge part of Blogville, I wouldn't know how to pick a favorite memory. He ALWAYS gave me a good chuckle, butt I especially loved his commentary every year on the MangoMinster contestants.......and of course there was his lipstick proudly on display!

Tonight we are out watching the sky......I know there is a new Relentlessly Huge new star

Marley said...

We are sad to hear Mango has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. We are so sorry for the ones left behind. Lady doesn't like to think of such things. Mango was huge in size, but heart as well. That's what I will remember.
Licks,
Marley

Mango Momma said...

Oh Frankie,
I'm glad that I didn't get around to reading this until today so that I could read all the wonderful comments and memories of Mango and his adventures.

It seems his lipstick made quite an impression in blog land. Hey! It's all Mango, it's all good, right?

Thank you and your mom for being such good friends and for your support and for this wonderful post.

Mango Momma

P.S. Still waiting for photographic confirmation that you have actual leggies.
