From History of Leonberger Dogs -
Leonbergers in the Ownership of Known Persons
Another famous person, who
became fond of the breed of Leonberger dogs, was the niece of great
Russian poet Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin, Duchess Nathalie von
Oldenburg (1854 -1937). Fot the most of her life, Duchess von
Oldenburg lived in her castle in the Slovak village of Brodzany
(situated in western Slovakia, between the towns of Topoľčany and
Partizánske), where she kept either one or two dogs of the
Leonberger breed or a whole pack of Leonberger dogs at her times. It
is reported that she obtained Leonberger puppies in Vienna, and that
she took care of them and trained them herself.
The Leonberger dogs of
Duchess Nathalie were allowed to move freely within her castle and
in the area of the surrounding park in Brodzany. The dogs were
reported not to be conflicting and did not attack anybody except for
one case, when they attacked the 64-year-old secretary of the
Duchess Nathalie, the Austrian writer and translator Fritz
Lemmermayer. Mr Lemmermayer had been living in the castle of
Brodzany for more than twenty-five years, when he was severely
bitten by Nathalie´s Leonberger dogs on the whole body including his
neck. After the secretary had been treated for about six months in
the castle, he became healthy, left Brodzany for Vienna where he put
his case on trial.
was successful and was paid the damages until the end of his life,
though the Duchess was persuaded that the incident was Mr
Duchess Nathalie von
Oldenburg let build up a small Art Nouveau castle over the village
of Brodzany called Babylon, in the neighbourhood of which she
established a cemetary for her dogs and horses. Each animal had its
own grave with a marble gravestone, on which the name, and the dates
of the animal´s birth and death were engraved. These days, the grave
stones of Nathalie´s pets are not available here but some of the
gravestones which Duchess Nathalie installed for her animals in her
other castle - in Erlaa (a part of Vienna at present) have

A few sonnets by Nathalie von Oldenburg
dedicated to her Leonberger dogs:
(also available in the named book):
treuer Hund, auch du mußt mich verlassen,
Der nimmer doch im Leben von mir ging,
Der doppelt treu und liebend an mir hing,
Seit mich die Menschen meiden und mich hassen!
Ich kann’s noch immer glauben
nicht und fassen,
Daß dich, so frisch, so jung, der Tod umfing,
Daß, um zu schließen meines Schicksals Ring,
Auch du dein frohes Leben noch mußt lassen!
Dein Leben hat das Herze mir
Doch wenn dein braunes, klares Auge bricht,
Dann kommt für mich das Schlimmste — das Vermissen!
Und flehend hängt an mir noch treu und schlicht
Dein letzter Blick, eh’ sich die Augen schließen —
Mein edles, treues Tier, verlaß mich nicht!
Verhöhnt mich nur, weil ich bei
Die Liebe such’, die mir der Mensch versagt,
Die Liebe, die nach Nutzen nimmer fragt,
Die uns kein Fremder ruchlos mag entführen!
Dort, wo die Menschen Haß und
Der gift’ge Wurm an jeder Blüte nagt,
Aus Hütte und Palast die Selbstsucht ragt,
Muß ich den letzten Lebensmut verlieren.
Doch schau’ ich in dein Aug’,
mein treuer Hund,
Nichts seh’ ich drin als wandellose Treue;
Blick’ ich auf deiner Seele tiefsten Grund,
Nichts ist darin, was Gottes Sonne scheue!
Und thu’ ich dir mein tiefstes
Leiden kund —
Du schweigst! Ich weiß, daß nimmer ich’s bereue.
