ACA Hall of Fame Haylie's Comet TT THDD CGCA CGCU TKN
Owner: Elea Warf

Haylie gift was her ability to love people and do therapy work.  Haylie LOVED people and attention.  She actually ended up having around 500+ therapy visits but we stopped counting once we made it to 400.   Haylie would walk in a facility and prance most times, and whooing to let everyone know she was there and ready to start passing out nose touches.  She loved to touch her nose to a hand to let the patient know i'm here, i'm ready to be pet.   Sometimes if a patient feel asleep while petting she would also touch their hand with her nose to wake them up.   Her patients got a kick out of that and would chuckle and apologize to her "i'm sorry haylie did i fall asleep while petting you?"  Haylie just had a special way about her she touched a lot of lives.  Sometimes we would get a room full of people, She would walk around the room and stop at each person to get pet and then move to the next.  After that she would work her way back around and then start going to certain people who she felt needed her more.  Honored haylie is in the Hall of Fame for her therapy work.. she was really good at it!
