Elin's first dog, Colargol's Globus, was a Newfoundlander, often called newfy or nuffe. He was a big, strong, longhaired and stubborn dog that mostly did what he wanted, and had a hard time listening to his owner.

Going for a walk with Globus could be some experience. At least when he spotted a cat or another dog, and you tried to hold him back. No wonder he ran into the street some years ago and was hit by a car.

Globus became very weak and old during the winter 2004/05, and was put to sleep in July 2005, a little over 10 years old.
