Hi friends! We wanted to post today in honor of a dear friend to many, and a real superstar of the blogosphere Mango. We are sure you all ready heard the sad news, that our friend Mango crossed over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. 

Mango was a big dog with an even bigger heart. What we loved about the Mango Man was his sense of humor. He just cracked us up. He was a gentle giant and he hosted the very popular Mango Minster contest for many years. (we were SO honored when he asked us to be judges one year!) 

Mango was a friend to every creature who blogged and then some. We are going to miss that guy so much. 

To Mango's family, we thank you so much for sharing the Mango Man with us via the blogosphere. You gave him such a distinct voice, we all felt like we really knew him. How lucky Mango was to be so well loved for his whole life. We are honored to have known him. 

Mango's Momma posted a lot of Youtube videos over the years, and we wanted to share this video of the Baby Mango, who was relentlessly huge even as a puppy. 

We love you Mango, thanks for everything.  xoxo, Raymond and Busby


  1. We were shocked and saddened when we heard the news about Mango. We sure will miss the big guy. This is a great tribute to him.

  4. What a lovely tribute to Mango.

    We love and miss you guys. Hope all is well!


  5. We were at dog shows scouting out breeders of dogs who were not mastiffs (we had already decided not to get another mastiff). Then we ran into Mango's breeder and she just happened to have a little puppy available and would we be interested? We went up to visit her KNOWING that we were just looking. When we got there, she could not locate the puppy that she had told us about.

    We finally found him. Behind a bush. Stuck in a water bucket. Well, how could we not take him home?

    Thank you for your words and thoughts. You certainly made MM a great event.

  10. Hi! My name is Nermal...I'm just turning three today...I wasn't sure how to contact you, so I'm leaving a comment. I just started a blog today, since it's my birthday and I want to start blogging my adventures. I'm not sure how to get into the blogging community so if you could offer some advice or follow, that would be sooo amazing and totally make my birthday!
    Please email me at:
    Thanks and I like your blog a lot!
    A loving kitty cat,

  11. I am so sorry with what happened to Mango. He was such a sweet and lovable animal. My condolences go out to his family and other close relations. At least now he is up there with all of the other greats who went before him.
