Rommy was the beloved dog of Karen Isak Dinesen Blixen.
He was a German Shepard, born in Africa and given to her by a friend.
His 13 birthday was celebrated with a party. The 'birthday boy' sat at the table surrounded by his presents and the 'two-footed' guests drank hot chocolate, one of his mommy's favorite treats.
A few weeks later he and his mistress, the Baroness Blixen, went for a walk around the dam on her farm in Denmark. That was as far as the old dog could go.
He died at the end of March.
When there was nothing else the veterinarioan could do for him, his mistress clipped a lock of his hair as a keep-sake of her beloved dog and had him put to sleep.
Karen had him buried on Ewald's Hill near the site of what would one day become the place of her own gravesite.
He was, she once said, the most lovable and faithful creature she had ever owned.
