There's also Rupert Bear's dragon friend Ming. Rupert's been around since
1920, but I wonder when Ming made his first appearance? Of course, Ming is a
Chinese dragon, but did they make any earlier showing in the Western canon?

Love the daffodil shirt, by the way! It reads like a typically Sophyish
counterpoint to Shakespeare's "Daffodils that come before the swallow dares,
/ And take the winds of March with beauty."
