Edd dies aged 8
Edd, beloved pet bullmastiff of the Imperial Family, has died aged 8 years old.
Edd passed away yesterday in the Imperial Residence after having a stroke.
Born in December 2008 and bought as a pet by the then Emperor Terry I in March 2009, Edd lived in the Imperial Residence with his distant relative Rose, whom he succeeded as Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff – practically the ceremonial embodiment of Austenasia’s national animal – upon her death in April 2014.
With a superb showing pedigree, Edd was shown at ten dog shows between 2009 and 2012, and qualified to be shown at Crufts in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Edd has been succeeded as Mascot of the Order of the Bullmastiff by Lily, Rose’s daughter who lives with a family in Surrey.
Edd will be cremated, and his ashes buried in Wrythe Pet Cemetery in the coming weeks.
