Have you seen any dragons lately?


Some days, the best blog posts come from ideas from other blogger's posts.  Such as this one from MA at "On the Bright Side"Apparently, today is "Appreciate A Dragon Day".  

Here are a few that I appreciate.



I've always been a fan of dragons. I can remember watching a somewhat terrible show on television with my children called Dudley the Dragon. Back then, I loved the way Dudley talked; and I would drive the kids crazy talking to them like Dudley. Now-a-days, I can understand why it drove them nuts!


One of my favorite children's books is entitled Sleeping Dragons All Around by Nova Scotia's own Sheree Fitch.  I highly recommend it to anyone with children or grandchildren; it's so entertaining and imaginative. I especially liked the end where everyone ends up in the kitchen eating "mocha maple chocolate cake".


And of course, practically the whole world is in love with Smaug
from The Hobbit. Benedict Cumberbatch's amazing voice just hipnotizes you.



But my very favorite dragon is this one:
The Lesser Spotted Newfoundland Cuddler.
They're on the endangered list, and are normally only seen around late October, hunting for sweets and treats.




Quite a pleasant and almost tame little creature, it takes particular delight in peeled clementines and apple juice.

It's also awfully fond of it's Mommy.

I'm extremely honored to be able to come into close contact with this most magnificant of dragons.

An animal that's easy to love.

I think a BIG hug is in order. That last dragon is sweet as can be. I like clementines too.

That is an adorable dragon you have there. Glad you took the opportunity to enjoy Appreciate a Dragon Day.
