Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from the Dog Geek and crew! We're not big fans of beer or corned beef or cabbage around here, but we do love some fairy tales. Here's one I particularly love, about the Irish hero Fionn MacCool, and how he got his dogs Bran and Sceo'lan.

Fionn MacCool, leader of the Fianna, was a legendary hunter and warrior in Irish mythology. His two hounds appear in multiple stories beside Fionn.

This one is not a long story, but it has a little bit of everything. Love, jealousy, fairies, magic, and a man who hates dogs. Like, really, really hates them. (It's ok, everyone lives happily ever after!)

Check out the Birth of Bran over at Sacred Texts!
