Crochet pattern for a slightly fierce but friendly really Dragon

I was introduced to a really cool crochet pattern: http://heavens-hellcat.livejournal.com/807.html , I finally finished it, it took a few trial and errors for a beginner like me but the result is freaking awesome and I got a lot better at crochet-ing.

Nostrils:
8 sc in ring
FO leaving a bit of a tail.
8 sc in ring, then sc into any stitch on the first ring and go all the way around both of them, ending up with 16 st. Use the tail to sew up any gap between the 2 parts.
