Ally is a big black retriever that does nothing useful. She doesn't bark except if she feels like it. She isn't intimidating, and she eats a lot. She is my daughter's dog. She was abused, and my daughter and her husband adopted her when she was two-years of age.
Ally is so named for no reason at all. Recently, I went to my daughter's house, but she wasn't home. I used my key to enter, and Ally was outside. I let her in and I waited for my daughter.
Ally plopped down in the bedroom in her favorite spot. Then, and only then after nestling into her corner did she let out a loud bark.
