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.

He was successful and was paid the damages until the end of his life, though the Duchess was persuaded that the incident was Mr Lemmermayer´s fault.

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 survived. 

If you are interested in history of Leonberger dogs, the book Natália Oldenburgová – zabudnutá perla Ponitria (Nathalie von Oldenburg – Forgotten Pearl of the Nitra Region in Slovakia) by author: Jana Judinyová is recommendable. The book was published in January 2013 and contains a few photos of Duchess Nathalie von Oldenburg with her Leonberger dogs. The book Natália Oldenburgová – zabudnutá perla Ponitria is partly written in German and in Slovak (the poems and aphorisms of Nathalie of Oldenburg and the resumeé of the book; the resumeé is written both in German and in English).

A few sonnets by Nathalie von Oldenburg dedicated to her Leonberger dogs:
(also available in the named book):

 Mein 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 zerrissen —
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! 

II.

Verhöhnt mich nur, weil ich bei treuen Tieren
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 Missgunst schüren,
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.
