DiÃ«go was 9 months old when he came to live with us. Apparently he had become too big for his previous owners so they wanted to sell him. I immediately fell in love with this beautiful Bernese. A few months ago when I believed I had failed my first important final exam at the university I felt miserable. I sat on the kitchen floor crying, and there was DiÃ«go, right by my side. My Bernese mountain dog who usually hates cuddling sat next to me on the floor with his head on my lap and my arms around him for an entire hour. He is there for me when I need it, a better friend than most humans.
