I join a chorus of hundreds who will sing Mango's praises today and we've wiped away tears more than once today, but rather than lament his death, I say let's raise our paws to a RELENTLESSLY HUGE LIFE WELL-LIVED.
Let's celebrate how lucky we all were to be friends with Mango.
Devoted to charity and those less-fortunate than himself, he and his brother Peewee were proud supporters of the "Lacie Date Survivor" cause. He man(go)ed hot lines and saved more than a few unknowing pups.
He also was a very vocal proponent to bringing an end to Lacie's Smoothie business.
Truly a ladies man(go), Mango had international beauties drooling all over him (and vice versa!)
...winning rave reviews for his performance as The Nutcracker prince in the Boston Ballet...
...mastering a Highland fling with a teeny partner...
Two drifters, off to see the world,
there's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end, waiting 'round the bend
My Huckleberry friend, Moon River and me.
Until we meet again, dear friend...
