Unhappy Mango :(

Hi all..
Some very unfortunate news about Mango.....
After some serious thought and many many tears we have decided to give back Mango to the breeder to find another forever home...
It was alot more difficult to take care of both puppeis and our parents who take care of Beamer during the day do not have enough energy for the 2 of them..

In the end it is best for Mango to go to a different family for him and for us... he deserves 100% attention..
We took hom home this afternoon and he was very excited to see his breeder and the gang... it was VERY upsetting for me to leave without him... probably the worst feeling i have ever had..

Getting 2 of these little guys was pretty much all by emotion.. for those of you who followed the 'mango' saga from the start, you will recall that this is the 3rd mango.. the first was a miscarrige, the 2nd had a heart deffect, and now this perfect little mango...
When we found out about Mango #2's heart defect we bought Beamer on pure emotion the very next day.. (best purchase i've ever made..)
But we still had it in our heads that we had to get the 3rd mango just because of the emotional connection... Obviously we should not have followed our hearts but our heads...
It was extrmeley difficult decission to make, but at the end its better for all involved...

I hope I do not receive any harsh comments from you all... this message is more of an FYI... and no response is really nessasary... I just wanted my friends to know what is going on with Mango..
I hope Mango finds the perfect home ASAP...
Thanks...
Ryan

PS- i think Beamer is more happy being the only one in our lives....

This had to be an extremely difficult decison to make. I'm sure you gave it plenty of thought and made the best possible choice for your family, your dog, and Mango. He is young and adorable and will have another family soon where he will be a perfect fit! You're very brave to make such a hard choice.

Awwww I know it must have been a very hard decision for you. I am sure you did the right thing. He will go to another loving home were he can get all the attention he needs. Maybe when Beamer is older you will find it easier to take in a second dog. Two puppies would definitly be a handful! For now just focus on giving all your love and attention to that beautiful boy Beamer.

Ryan,

I know this is a very difficult decision for you. Sometimes when we are sad about something - someone else is elated.

Sissy's story - I was searching for a havanese and wanted the cream apricot combination. I looked and looked - finally came across the perfect one - I had never seen her on the puppyfinder before. I contacted them and they were in South Dakota. I called them and found out that really the puppy was in Oklahoma City - 2 hrs from me. The breeder had put her puppies on the internet and sold them all - but the lady that bought Sissy was having some
physical problems and decided to not come pick her up. So a friend of the breeder in South Dakota put her on her website because the breeder was having trouble with her website... to make a story short.. The day the lady decided not to take her - I FOUND HER.....

I just thank God everyday - she has made my life so wonderful.

We think about that often and are so thrilled we have her. Mango will
find his right home and love it. He's so adorable.

Marie


Santa, Sissygirl

Ryan, don't feel bad about your decision. You did what was best for Mango, Beemer and your family. I know you must miss him. I have three and I know that adding more is alot more work. Mine were spaced out a little further, I can't imagine having to potty train two. Now you can focus on Beemer, and think about another one when he is fully trained.

Peace, Love & Havanese

Oh
Ryan, I am so sorry that you guys had to go thru this emotional time. You are very strong people who made a very difficult decision for you, but the best for Mango. I had to return a Lhaso Apso that I adopted and I cried for a week, but I know it was the best decision for the pup, and for our family.
We are thinking about you!!

Please dont feel like that, you had the best intentions and it just didnt work out. You know in your heart, that it was the right decision for your guys and for Mango. It is a very hard thing to do, but you did it for him! Maybe once Beamer is grown and trained you guys will be ready for another. It had to have been hard to potty train two!! Its too bad someone on the forum couldnt have adopted him! Maybe his new forever owner will keep you updated on his progress.

Hi Ryan,

I'm sorry that things didn't work out. But it really sounds like you thought it through and made a good practical decision. I guess that doesn't make it feel any better though. I hope each day gets easier for you. And give Beamer an extra big hug tonight!

Ryan, this had to be a very hard decision for you and your family. Its nice to know that you were thinking of Beamer, everyone in your family and little Mango and were strong enough to make a decision that in the end will probably be best for everyone. Enjoy Beamer growing up and spoil him with all your love.
