Or is this version just too techno (or at least, distancing itself from true magic) for them to throw in some myth-like creatures.

I'm not clued up on myths, but it'd be awesome (to me) for Thor to have a griffin as a pet - Take that, Ozy, mine's bigger/more dangerous/cooler than yours !!!
Not really in Asgard. Asgard was the city of the Aesir. The other races and mythical beasts and such had their own realms/cities. That's why they've got the Nine Worlds.

That said, Volstagg just revealed in the Iron Man/Thor comic that he has a pet dragon, so it's not unprecedented.
