We are so sorry to hear about Mango this morning.

No way Puddles! We still can't believe that Corbin's fam came to visit JUST you! How totally pawsome was that. And we think you're right ~ Corbin's gonna be really upset that he couldn't come too. So glad that you had a great time with them.

Thanks for the beautiful post about Mango. We are still in shock over the news. We just came from his blog. Our hearts are hurting...

PeeS Da news of Mango breaks our hearts...

What Remains Now said...

This is so much fun! Corbin posted some clues on his blog and I knew it had to do with you. I mean, who wouldn't...cheetos, beer and Kool-Aid. That is a beautiful picture of you and Corbin's momma.

And a sad note...I'm so sorry about Mango.

houndstooth said...

Of course they came all that way to see you! Humans can't resist us Greyhounds, they'll drive from all over to see us. I'm glad you were suitably adored!

We are so sad and stunned to hear the news about Mango!


Finn said...

Wow, what an awesome visit!!!! I can't believe the news bout Mango, so sad to hear about this.

GOOSE said...

How wonderful is that?!!! And of course they wanted to hold, hug and kiss you. Who wouldn't. I'd drive 87 million miles just to get a glimps of you. If only MOM would not hide her keys to the Blazer.
Mango was a great guy (and still is) and his heart was even bigger than him. run free.

Corbin said...

I have no words. None. Not a single one. Ok, well that was 9 words, but whatever. I can't believe this.

Unknown said...

How nice for you all to get together Puddles. Looks like you were the star of the show. You were the topic of conversation yesterday on our beer post , BOL! We were sorry to read about Mango. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Meeting blogging friends in the flesh and fur is one of the best things. Like so many others I was stunned to read about Mango's passing.


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OH PUDDLES this is just the bestest news about Corbin's Mom and Dad coming to visit YOU. I am sure that Corbin will NEVER let them wash your delicious SCENT from their Clothes. THIS is soooooo exciting that I dribbled a bit over the NEWS and the PICTURES. I just KNOW that THE kiss was delivered to YOU from CORBIN. You are SOOOOOO lucky to have gotten to meet da Corbin Parents in the furs.
Every Heart on my Hill ... HURTS with the Sad news about our Relentlessly Huge Furend's unexpected trip to the bridge. Last night I though I heard THUNDER... little did I know that it was the sound of his HUGE FEET Racing across the Bridge.

Matilda the Boxer said...

OMD, I can't believe you got to meet Corbin's mom and dad in the furs!! That's so exciting. But no wonder he's been complaining about betrayal. How COULD they go see you and not take him?!

Bassetmomma said...

Oh my! That must have been so awesome to meet Corbin's humans in person! I'm not surprised they came to see you Puddles.

So sorry to hear about Mango. :(

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

We just came from Corbins and you are right about the Pissed part. We think it is scandalous that he wasn't included.

We've been thinking about Mango since we heard last night....what a shock! Amazing when you think of all those humans around the world shedding a tear for the big...we mean huge fellow.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

Marg said...

Oh that looks like so much fun meeting some blogging friends. Looks like they kind of liked you Puddles.
We saw that poor Mango had to go to the bridge. That is just way too sad.He was a big boy.

Remington said...

Inger said...

Puddles, life is so strange, you get happiness like meeting Corbin's mom and dad. I mean you can just tell they are warm and friendly humans. Then you lose a good friend like Mango. I am so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Mango, but I feel sad for his parents too. You wrote a beautiful tribute for him.

Murray's Mouth said...

Yes the ups and the downs...aaah life!

Dexter said...

Miss Puddles,
I suspect that Corbin's humans are superior cuddlers if they even got you know who to hold still for some sugar. I think you look grand as a neck warmer for Corbin's mom and you might want to consider hitching a ride home with her or maybe just change places with Corbin. Do you think the crazy lady would even notice?

Thanks for thinking of my Mango and for making me smile.

Mango Momma

Cole said...

Puddles, you and Corbin's momma look adorables together! She should bring Corbin next time.

I missed the news about Mango. I'll go visit his blog... :-(

Ziggy Stardust said...

Puddles I can't believe you got to meet corbins pawrents and they came just to see you! You are really long by the way, I bet Corbin was mad he didn't get to meet you. I hope you sent some nice smells home with them for him.

Loveys Sasha

There will be a relentlestly huge hole in blogland. That is a very nice tribute .

Anne and Sasha

Scrappy Angel said...

How cool that they came JUST to see YOU:) What fun to get so much attention. It is also fun to see the peeps behind the blog!

Sad that Mango went OTRB - the world has truly lost a gentle giant!

(sorry I have been MIA - it's been TOO long)

Brian said...

That was one terrific visit you had Puddles! We were sad to see the news about Mango.

Maxmom said...

Hey there Puddles.
Your sweet face (and attitude)can win anyone over. You are a cutie-patootie! I bet those peoples were eating outta your paws.

Yes, it is a very sad day in bloggie-land with the loss of our special friend Mango. What an amazing icon he was - and will continue to be.

Sending lotsaluv

KB said...

Corbin's humans sound absolutely wonderful. Wow, lucky you, Puddles!

But, we are all sad about Mango, so sad and so shocked. I loved him from afar, like so many dogs and people did.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

OMD, Miss Puddles, you are the luckiest girlie ever to meet Corbin's mum and dad. Beautiful photos and we love all the smiles. We don't think Corbin will be smiling quite so much when he hears what happened. We loved our Uncle Mango too and he will be in our hearts forever and ever. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory (who WAS sending you a teeny tiny kissie in the video) hehe.
