DOG DIES PROTECTING FAMILY

It was a shocking afternoon for the Igiby family. While fighting a big group of lizard type creatures known as Fangs at Miller’s Bridge, their family dog, Nugget, died protecting them. Nugget was biting and scratching the Fangs while trying to protect the family. The Fangs began to fight back and seriously injured the dog, eventually pushing him off the cliff which led to his death.
The eldest child, Janner, describes the incident like this: “Nugget died knowing he did good because of the way he saved our sister. We are glad to have had a dog who was courageous and willing to put Leeli’s life before his own.” Leeli was too sad and devastated to talk about what happened. Podo explains that when Nugget fell from the cliff he was heartbroken, but he knew that they couldn’t wait around for too long or the Fangs would catch up to them again. When the Fangs were asked to comment on the incident they replied: “The dog was biting us and we were all annoyed so we decided to kill him.”
The family left the scene unharmed and the Fangs left feeling like they had accomplished something. The Igibys found a place to stay the night and fell asleep defeated.
