Run Free, El'bow - Updated

Dear readers, the Mango is beside himself with a broken heart to learn that my good buddy and fellow mastiff, El'bow, has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

While I am sad to see any of my doggie pals make their final journey, it is extra heartbreaking for me and especially for momma when one of our few mastiff friends leaves us.

I wanted to include this movie which is one of my favorites of him ever.
It is El'bow doing mastiff dog dancing and is a very happy making video.
Watch it here.

El'bow has not been blogging much lately, but I think if you leave a comment on his blog that his momma will get it.

Oh El'bow. Run free you big, wonderful, slobbery, handsome guy. I miss you so much.

We didn't know him but will go across now to leave our condos.

And on your other posts, boring old misery read right through the looong post (there's a surprise) and thought it was a v good analysis although she won't be doing the same.

Myself I think the PT looks rather good.

And I don't know why you couldnt leave a comment on the health stuff, she has probably set it incorrectly. She may even sort it. At some point.

Oh no! This is very sad news indeed! I will miss our friend Elbow! My favorite video of his is when he watched my video and we were barking back and forths at each other. Rest peacefully dear friend.
