Hi, Asta -

This tribute is beautiful. We did go over to Mango's blog even though we did not know him that well.

Hope your Mommi is feeling better. Mama has had sinus trouble lately because of the rain.

Such a lovely tribute Asta to our friend Mango.
We too are heartbroken. What fun we have all had over the years.
We so remember the fun we had at the Estate during MangoMinster.
Mango will leave a huge hole in blogland.
We will all meet again one day across the bridge and Bailey cannot wait to dance with Mango again. Even though he kept standing on her paws......!
Much love
Martha and Bailey xxx
