    What a tough choice! I love all the critter companions, but Adso and Rollo live in my heart. I'll go with Claire's reaction at seeing Adso after the long separation from life on the Ridge. Both usually practice such matter-of-fact, get-on-with-it attitudes, but cats are subtle creatures, and so are matters of the heart. I first came across "Pangur Bán" as one of Barber's Hermit Songs, and it has stayed with me. Yup, he got it right.

    So hard to choose!! Went with Clarence but I cred when Rollover died, I so saw Hiram and his mehhh, the white sow was such a great beast! Also was such a healing character, Diana's ability to write these characters is such a joy to read❤️❤️❤️

    I love so many of these: Rollo, Adso, the White Sow, Bouton & Clarence in particular. I finally decided to vote for Rollo... I love his fierce loyalty to Young Ian...and I cried when he died.

    Rollo. question! Always felt he was an animal version of Jamie. Always protective, loving & there when you needed him! Love, love, love Rollo! ❤

    I chose always welcoming and friendly Clarence.

    I wavered between Rollo & Bouton. Rollo won my vote, but Bouton really shares it w/ him - they're both faithful, smart, and loyal ????

    Had to check the Outlandish Companion as I didn't remember Gideon. Vol I lists Gideon as Simon Fraser's secretary! I know he might have treated the poor man like a dog, but surely that didn't qualify the man as such! Fortunately Vol II refreshed my memory that Gideon was Jamie's horse in NC, like Donas, but with a worse temper.

    I also wavered between Rollo and the White Sow but chose faithful friend over the frustrating female...and she was every bit of that.

    Just LOVE all Diana's books. Thank you for these treasures

    Great choices. Almost chose the white sow, since she protected the gold.
