the last dragon dies
This is Dragon. My brothers dog. This is also me a few years ago with long hair. Best guess is a Mastiff/Rhodesian Ridgeback cross. For the dog that is, not me. Or my hair. The loveliest, gentlest giant you've ever met to all creatures except chickens. Everyone who has ever met him feels that he belonged afterwards in some way to their own family. That kinda dog.
He had an eight kilo tumour removed from his stomach a few months ago and today my brother had to make the final decision to have him put down.
He was such a beautiful dog. Dragons do bring a bit of magic into the world.
