Mango has more frequent flier miles than some people and is always with Raquel. She rarely ever spends any time home alone and spoiled is an understatement when it comes to describing her. She is lovingly nicknamed beba, bebes, bunny, bingo, bango, mangs, pom child and the princess. She’s the laziest office assistant ever and the perfect companion. You can find Mango throughout Raquel’s Instagram feed and here on the blog.
