Vanity Fair magazine asked Bill Blass, “Who or what is the greatest love of your life?” His answer:

My dogs.

Blass was a dog lover and owned several Golden Retrievers. He was most fond of his beloved Labrador, Barnaby, whom he entrusted to his butler before his death. His butler recalled that Barnaby came with his own couch and his favorite treat was lemon meringue pie! Bill donated $1 million both to the Animal Center of New York and the New York chapter of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
