Twitter reacts to the death of Roof Dog

Written by on August 3, 2015 in Community, Music, News - 2 Comments

Brixton Windmill’s iconic mascot and loyal guardian Roof Dog sadly passed away last week. People took to Twitter to celebrate this much-loved local pup.

Some people had fond memories to share.

Others missed his doggy dribble.

He inspired musicians.

Including some pretty famous ones.

It’s really sad. We’ll miss you #RoofDog.
