Every website should have a mascot, right? Here at theMangoTimes we have Rasta the Chocolate Lab. Currently, she is the mascot and spokes-dog for living the life of adventure we like to promote on theMangoTimes. For those readers who have been around since the beginning,  you will know that Rasta lives in the shadow of the original dog/mascot of theMangoTimes, Salsa the Golden Retriever. We have fond memories of Salsa and many of you will agree that she deserved her well earned title as BEST DOG ON EARTH.

Adopted as a 6 year old dog after her previous family moved and could not take her with them to their new home. She transitioned seamlessly into our family and even underwent a simple name change without skipping a beat.

Rasta is an AKC purebred chocolate lab and has worked through the boundless energy that Labs are known for having. Rather than the need to be constantly playing, Rasta is quick to find a piece of floor to occupy and sleep. In that way, she reminds us her predecessor.

In her previous home, Rasta had a lot of positive interaction with her family and has tons of patience with kids, so we are training her to be a companion to MightyJoe . He's the luckiest boy in the world to have a friend like Rasta.

Why the name Rasta? She is as mellow as an afternoon of reggae music and just spending time with her reminds anyone that "every little thing is gonna be alright." If you ever need a dog to join you for an afternoon nap or leisurely stroll, drop on by and spend some time with Rasta. In the meantime, you can enjoy her on social media as she helps us spread positive vibes and a life of adventure.
