Haley likes it when you throw her tennis ball. Over and over and over again. I have yet to reach the limit of "and now Haley is done with you throwing the tennis ball for awhile." I don't think there is one, or if there is, it is greater than the limit of how many times I can throw it.

I don't care, really. I am a sucker for her adorable little Ewok face staring at me with great joy and expectation going throw-the-ball-throw-the-ball-throw-the-ball. Sometimes she puts a gooey ball in my lap. Sometimes she puts it in front of me and nudges it with her nose. At times, she will even follow me around and put it against my leg.

These behaviors are...less than endearing to my partner. For some reason, the sound of "click click click click click click *thunk* *grab* click click click click click click *drops ball in front of thrower" get to her after, oh, maybe 50-100 throws? IDK. I think it's cute, and also, I can't resist that Face Haley makes.

Partner can resist the face. Partner has some sort of Haley-ball-neutralizing-mystical-powers wherein she puts the ball next to us on the sofa, and Haley comes and chews the ball, and then suddenly she's asleep. How does this happen? (When I attempt this, Haley just stares at the ball from the sofa until I cave and throw it again.)

Here, for your viewing pleasure, are some photos I took last night while attempting to resist the Face. I didn't make it long, but aren't the pictures cute?

Haley continues her pleas for tennis ball throwing with tennis ball pictured (a pink "support Breast Cancer research" tennis ball, because Haley is into causes like that I guess?)

Ahhhhhhh adorable puppyyyyyy~! :D :D :D (Not gonna lie, I would throw the ball for her. If I couldn't get her to snuggle, anyway.)

LOL. Do you think partner's powers would work on small children too? *sigh* Missing you. <3 <3

I love border terriers but the constant click click click click click click means I could only share a fully carpeted house with one, heh. My friend's b.t. isn't interested in thrown objects but he does enjoy viciously attacking my slippers... if I'm wearing them at the time. I should probably have stopped him at some point but I find it almost as entertaining as he does (and I have very sturdy slippers!).

Oh my goodness! No wonder you have such a hard time resisting! What a cutie.

I am glad she is there with you, bringing some sunshine into your days.
