Love is a many splendored thing, so the song goes. It reminds us that love is very different for each person, and indeed each time you fall in love. Many of the DM Collection animals represent love in their own unique way - but which is closest to your experience of amour?
The Cat is constantly entranced by the object of its affections. Following them around absentmindedly, catching itself staring at the wonderful being that is its love, and of course, needing lots of nuzzles and hugs. See Daniel's Cat designs.
The Dog is loyal to those they love above all else. As pack animals, the bonds between them are crucial for their survival in the wild. Pet dogs may have softened around the edges, but their steadfast, loyal, affectionate nature remains strong. See Daniel's Dog designs.
In contrast, the Butterfly is a rather flighty piece! Aesop's fable the Butterfly and the Rose shows that despite their love, Mr Butterfly could not remain faithful to just one flower. But then again, the Rose also had a soft spot for the Bumblebee.... See Daniel's Butterfly design.
Perhaps the Lion is more your style? Fiercely protective of those in its pride, both male and female lions will fight to the death if they feel one they love is under threat. Yet, in relaxed moments they nuzzle and play together, revealing they are a soft pussycats at heart. See Daniel's Lion design.
Or does love make you want to crow from the rooftops like the Rooster? The bird's pride as he struts the farmyard around like the lord of the manor is a feeling love can create - just hope the fox doesn't sneak up on him! See Daniel's Rooster designs.
A pair of love birds is perhaps the most clear sign of enduring love from the animal kingdom, as 90% of bird species are monogamous, with 'divorce' rates thought to be lower than humans! Inseparable, these two are true soul mates who delight in each others' company. See Daniel's Goldfinches design.

With the exception of artists, inventors, and teenagers - we humans are diurnal daytime creatures on the whole, and although it’s one thing to be out and about during the night in a street lit urban environment, it’s a very different scenario if you find yourself in, say… oh, I don’t know, a forest per se. Where, if you’re lucky, you may hear the unmistakable cry or hoot of an Owl: natures very own nocturne, a stark reminder of the unknown peril of night, and a creature that has featured heavily in myth and folklore throughout the ages.
