Ah, friends, we lost a good one today. Our friend Mango has headed over the bridge to join many of our friends (and my left eye) in that marvelous place of no pain, no leashes, and endless mountains of bacon and cheeseburgers.
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.
He was a great traveller and adventurer, even if this trip to South Africa resulted him getting into some hot water. While the tribe were disappointed not to sample delicious mango, The Relentlessly Huge reported it was the best hot tub he'd ever experienced.
Along with his great pal, Joe Stains, Mango traveled to the Highlands of Scotland several times. His kilt still holds the record for most tartan ever used. No doubt he and Joey are discussing the Red Sox and Yankees seasons right this moment.
Truly a ladies man(go), Mango had international beauties drooling all over him (and vice versa!)
His producer debut on "Beagadoon" -- the all-canine retelling of the classic musical Brigadoon -- won him his first Oscar Meyer award.
For such a relentlessly huge fella, Mango was surprisingly light on his feet. Whether he was rivaling the pros from Dancing with the Stars in the ballroom...
...winning rave reviews for his performance as The Nutcracker prince in the Boston Ballet...
...mastering a Highland fling with a teeny partner...
...or kicking up his heels with the Rockettes (okay, so he smushed a couple of them.)
Today we lost Andy Williams as well. And I think his most famous song is appropriate today as we remember and celebrate our friend Mango.
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...
A lovely tribute to Mango. So many memories and so many smiles - he will be missed so much.
Our thoughts are with his family, as we send them our love and gentle woofs,
Riley and Enzo
Oh Petey. You've made us cry again. A lovely tribute, and reminder of his RELENTLESSLY HUGE LIFE WELL-LIVED! See you at the Rainbow's end, our Huckelberry furiend.

Such wonderful memories. That Mango sure got around and had some amazing adventures. Thank you.
Beautifully said, Petey!
Is your eye already seriously at the Bridge? Can you see up there???? Wow...I had no idea that that happened...
Did you really HAVE to use the picture of me in the Nutcracker looking like I weigh at least 25 pounds??? I swear that was photoshopped....
You gave us a gift here today...we laughed...and that pic of the RH and Stains is a classic....
Miss you dear boy....

Wonderful tribute Petey, that brought back so many memories and made us smile. He was a huge character in every sense and we will miss him so.
A life well lived indeed.
All the best,
Gail and Bertie.
Ahh Petey ,what a smashing tribute to our huge pal, wasn't he the one of the bestest? Wiry ones. Eric xxx
Petey, darling...of course I remember that you had eye issues...I was just making a THE O LOG I CAL observation that I didn't know body parts could precede us to the Bridge. I was merely questioning if you can SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING UP THERE since your eye seems to be bouncing around winkin' at all the girlies there...
I need you to go to Bertie's blog, speaking of observations. Check out the video of the massive storm they had in Scotland on Tuesday. And check out the foam they had from the North Sea covering the town. SUDS, PETEY....MANGO SUDS. It's so obvious, I can't believe that Bertie with all his fancy schmancy degrees didn't even think of it. Sheesch.
Kisses and more,
Miss Lacie Beastie.
Does this mean my puppy teeth are at the Bridge? (Lacie grins thinkin' of a Relentlessly Hooge backside that she can now give a little nip too....) Always interesting talking to ya, Petey.
And my bum is just as tiny as ever you twit.
Thank you fow giving us these happy memowies. I know I'll aways smile when I wemembew ouw Welentlessly Huge and wondewful fwiend Mango and all the adventoowes we had.
