"You're a loyal dog and deserve a big kiss. I'm so glad we found each other. What I like best about you Patch, is that you keep all my secrets and you never criticise me. Just watching you be you makes me happy. If it hadn't been for that trick you showed me, I'd never have known to turn around three times before being able to sit down comfortably. Lots of people think that dogs can't count, but I know they can. If they don't believe me, let them show you three biscuits which they put in their pocket and then, only give you two!
Even when I do naughty things you don't leave my side; you stay with me. In all the time we've been together, not once have you complained. You know all there is to know about me, Patch, but you never tell. You're a good dog, Patch, and you're my dog. When we get back home, you can have a big fat biscuit!"
