Hailey's New Found Love

Well, maybe it's not Hailey's new found love, but it is something we didn't realize before.  Hailey LOVES cats and big dogs.  It's a little funny because we do not have pets and the boys have always been apprehensive around pets and animals.  I first noticed it when Hailey was at therapy at children's hospital.  They have a dog visitation program.  It's not uncommon to see dogs walking through the halls and waiting rooms.  Hailey has always loved seeing them.  She seemed to love the bigger dogs and backs away from the smaller ones.  She prefers them to be substantially bigger than her. 

This summer we visited family in Indiana.  We stayed with my sister-in-law who has a large dog.  This is what we saw. 

If you were ever searching for Hailey, you just needed to figure out where Skip was...Hailey would be close by.

Apparently, Skip makes a good pillow...not sure Skip is as convinced!

Not sure what it is about big dogs that Hailey love so much.  Maybe they are calmer than small dogs.  She is super gentle with them, too.  I was worried since we don't have pets that she would be rougher or pull on him, but she is super gentle and just wants to be near them and love them.  There are no pets in our future, but I do love watching her with dogs.  It is so sweet!
