Hi, I was wondering what animal has been the "love of your life", either still with you or now gone. Everyone (hopefully) loves all their animals but every now and then someone special comes into your life. So who has been that extra special friend. Mine was a Newfoundland dog who we got at 8 weeks old. I remember going to see him for the first time as a puppy him looking up at me and I just knew he was going to be my total love. We was devoted to one and other he was always beside me. He had a glistening black coat and had such strength in his presence, and so clever I swear he knew what I said to him and understood. His name was Barnaby. Barnaby died from heart problems on the 1st june 2001. A day has not gone by that I have not thought/missed him.
