Growf - a small pink and purple or mauve cartoon dragon featured in the comic strip What's new? with Phil & Dixie by Phil Foglio that appeared in Dragon Magazine.

Growf is very short, reaching a human's waist when sitting up. The little dragon has two very long horns similar to a steer, and often has a confused expression on it's face. Growf dragons multiply when they are immersed in water, much like the gremlins from the movie Gremlins.

The vocabulary of this particular dragon is very limited. In fact ,the little dragon gets it's name from the single utterance that it makes. The word growf is sort of like a cat's meow, it can mean anything when coupled with an expression. 'Growf?" "Growf!". The little dragon's expression helps convey meaning.
