Patrick would have you believe that Ally is my dog and he just tolerates her. I have photographic proof that this is not the case. If Patrick is home and not in the bed Ally is more that likely at his side. He sorta starting spoiling her without even realizing it. When he sits on the couch she jumps up there and paws at his hand until he scratches her tummy. It was pretty funny when he realized what he was doing and how she had trained him.
