My New Addition: "Mango"

Post by KauilaPo » Thu, 22 Mar 2001 10:59:00



Hi Everyone,
As most of the regulars here at this NG know, I lost my Life-Friend "Lucky"
last November. I'll miss that perfect little soul forever and no other dog will
ever take his place. However, as "Luck" would have it, a friend rang me up last
week and begged me to please take her 10 month old Pomeranian and find room in
my heart and life for him. She works long hours everyday (as her husband does)
and on top of that she suddenly took custody of her hyperactive 3 yr. old
grandson a couple of months ago and seems she will be raising him from now on.
She loved her little dog but knew it was unfair to him to be left alone 8 to 10
hrs. a day everyday except weekends.
I took him.
I've had him nine days now and he has already rocked my world with his
enthusiasm, his hope and youth. All the things I had to watch disappear from my
darling Lucky seem to be bursting out of this little guy. Lucky lived a long
life (21 yrs.) but as I said before, 'forever' would not have been long enough.
Now, "Mango" seems to have stepped into dear Lucky's 'turn' and watching new
life unfold has left me feeling blessed...perfectly blessed.
Here is a link that will take you to the face of this little angel!
Ain't Life Amazing??? (:
Thanks for giving me the space to share this joy with so many who have allowed
me to share many things, including even those dark days of sorrow.

Meet "Mango".................

Mango looks like a "most happy fella" - I'm sure he will bring loads of joy and
love into your life - just as you will bring to him.  Good luck with your new
burbaby.

I`m really happy for you that fate has intervened to lift your heart again.
When ever any of mine reaches the end, as much as it hurts, I believe that
the one I have lost has decided its time to let another fill the hole that
has been left so that a new one can then get the same love and care as the
one who has gone to the bridge. Its that belief that keeps me going at the
darkest times. I think Lucky would be proud to know that the person who
loved him so much will now be able to do the same for Mango.
Best wishes,
Patch

Mango, what a great name!   And a very "lucky" and cute dog to boot!
So glad to hear things are working out well!
Time helps heal.
And a *** face in there doesn't hurt.  :-)

Thanks everyone for all the support and encouragement. When Lucky died I
thought I would just stay away from here and I did for a time. I still had my
Scrappy (a 13 yr. old Chi) but he has always been so independent and the rarely
seems to need me and sorta just tolerates me most of the time.
Lucky on the otherhand was as dependent and needy as an infant. But on top of
his physical 'special needs' he seemed to have only one mission in life and
that was keeping track and keeping close to me.
It was all-consuming and the investment went far beyond my imagined limits. But
it seemed with every sacrafice came the reward of that unconditional love.
It felt so good to be so needed. Lucky left a hole in my heart that will never
be filled.
But he sure taught me how to love without expecting a thing in return.
He taught me lessons that changed the way I looked at 'qualilty of life' and he
taught me that old age comes with a long chain of little deaths and
losses...but there can always be pure joy...PURE love despite how frail and
fragile life seems to dangle from the balance of living.
That little dog shined a light undiscovered that allowed me to recognize the
warrior spirit in my soul. I fought for his dignity and I supported every
breath he tried to grab until he chose his own ending.
And then...I stuck with him and helped guide him away, even when I thought the
hurt of saying goodbye would surely wound my heart so deeply that it would not
remember how to beat again.
I miss him. He has left a gap in my life that  will keep his memory fresh
forever.
THAT is what one tiny little dog meant to my life.
And all I did was promise to never abandon him and to be the last thing his
eyes would see should he ever have to leave.
Telling his story has been my pleasure.
Thank you for listening. Thanks for allowing me the chance to pass on his
legacy.

Isn,t it funny how fate takes a hand and brings to you, one who needs you,
just when you are ready to be needed again?
I am sure your old friend lucky is looking down quite pleased with the way
he managed to arrange things for you.
Good luck with Mango.

Hi Melanie. I am so glad you responded because I have wanted to tell you for
some time now how much your website touched me. I followed your journey with
"Harley" and rigth before "Lucky" died you lost your brave battle to win more
time with your darling Pom.
You wrote something on that site about Harley that I have replayed in my own
mind many times over. You said (this isn't a direct quote but the essence of
it)"How could such a small, little dog leave such a huge hole in my heart"
When Lucky died he weighed only four lbs His normal weight had been 7. When the
vet weighed him that last day (before I made the decision that it was time to
help end his discomfort from kidney failure) I was stunned to discover how
really TINY he was.
That is when I remembered your words.
I'd like you to know that even though I did not know Harley and I do not know
you...I recognized the LOVE you shared and the journey you took together and
then, as fate would have it, I too would come to know the sorrow and the grief
as well.
And yes, "Mango" is from Saturday Night Live. Also because I am from Hawaii and
my little guy is the color of Mango fruit.
I hope life is good for you Melanie. I'm glad I got the opportunity to tell you
all of this.

What a really cute name.  I'm to guess that he is a orange pom.  How
fitting!
I love it.

Glad to see your spirit is revived by this little sprite.  Now if you could
just teach him to sit on your shoulder, you could trot around singing "Mr.
Mango on my shoulder...Zippity do da..."

Yeah I've watched the re-runs of "Splash" one too many times...

Cheers!
