The Mongrels 1: Dagul

He's the last mongrel pup our household has. At three, he's our youngest among our three local dogs.

He got his name because when he was still a puppy, he was a really big dog. He actually looked like a labrador's baby.

I don't know what happened after, why he stopped growing.

As short as his life has been, he's actually been through something traumatic. The time his mother brought out her pups, we had another dog that had babies. Naturally, two moms that gives birth is not a good idea. One afternoon, the other mom sneaked into Dagul's pen and brutally murdered his brother. He would have been the other victim if I hadn't stopped her.

He's still playful, but having two elder dogs, he's taken over the role of alpha dog in our household.
