Meet, Hayley, this week’s Reston Pet of the Week.
Hayley is a 4-year-old yellow lab. Here is what her owner, Caroline, has to say about her:
Here’s Hayley! She greets everyone she meets as if they were her best friend — complete with insane tail wagging and full-body shaking.
Aside from every lab’s favorite thing (meal time), Hayley’s true joys in life are tennis balls and snuggling. She’ll chase a tennis ball until she doesn’t have an ounce of energy left, and if she doesn’t have a ball to bring you, she’ll find one. We were once out exploring several acres of woods when she veered off, only to return with a tennis ball.
After she’s done catching the pesky tennis ball, all she wants to do is snuggle. She’s a 60-lb. dog who thinks she was meant to be a lapdog. Her plan of attack is always the same: approach the couch, stare at
her victim lovingly until they surrender, and then hop up and snuggle down — often using her victim’s leg as a pillow. Snuggling has become such an integral part of her being that she has earned her own hashtag
(#snuggledog), and most of her human friends refer to her as “Snuggledog” instead of “Hayley.”
Her perfect balance of playfulness, lovingness, and snuggles makes her the most wonderful dog… in my extremely unbiased opinion.

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
