I have a flat-coat retriever. He's all black and has the most expressive eyes ever. He's an absolute sweetheart and I am lucky to have him!!!

I have one black kitty and a black and white kitty.... Have also had a black lab and a black (with a few white spots) great dane. Hmmm... I'm noticing a pattern!
