A Movie of Memories and a New Blog

I made a short video of some great moments in Mango history. I confess that I had a different movie planned out, but after my movie editor hung 4 times trying to manage all the relentlessly huge videos, well, I kind of cut things short, but I think this captures Mango quite well.

We all miss the big guy. What a goofball he was.

Enjoy!




Dexter has started a new blog all his own.
You can check it out here.

What a great video. I loved all the puppy shots and laughed at the weave poles being bulldozed down. We miss him too. He was a very special character.

The slobber, the jaws of doom, the weave pole destruction and of course Mango dancing with his momma! You captured all the best parts. We miss him and so glad you put this together.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

I loved watching this movie so much that I'm giving it a 4 star review! You make a lot of movies, I see! What a talented lady you are! I loved how Mango just couldn't figure out how to weave through those poles, how he sat in a pool that had no water in it, and the drool all over his face was funny as well.
I still can't get over the fact that Mango passed away so suddenly! Your house must seem so empty without him!

Ruby said...

Oh, what an amazin' video! Mango sure was a king sized clown of the cutest kind. The drool makes Ma laugh soooo much, because, well, I sort of have a drool problem....I really don't know what her problem is!
Such beautiful memories. Thank you so very much for sharing them.

Kisses,

Ruby

There were so many great Mango moments, and you captured them beautifully! The video had a lot of our personal favorite moments in it, especially the ones from the dance contest. Mango was truly one of a kind, and we'll never forget him! We are so grateful that you shared him with all of us. And of course we are following Dexter's blog. How could we bear to miss the fun?

What an awesome video. I can completely understand the Weave Dammit sentiment. What a lovely tribute!

Random Felines said...

what a WONDERFUL video. those are the memories that make the hard times worth it....his loss won't get easier but what fun to be able to look back. mom is still laughing at the weave poles.....some dogs just weren't meant to weave. :)

but he was a fun goofball, and we all miss him. Mom has tears flowing as she watched the video - you really captured some great memories there. Thanks for sharing.

My favorite bit is Mango demolishing the weave poles! That, and the part where he appears to be almost as big as the lawn tractor.

Oh, Mango...you are missed. I can't believe you were once so small! Such a cute puppy, who really stayed a big puppy at heart! I bet you are keeping all the furpals beyond the Rainbow Bridge laughing with your antics! What a wonderful movie tribute to you. Sending our heartfelt thoughts out to your Mango Momma. Keep all those furangels laughing, Mango!
