Bailey In Waiting

This is Bailey patiently waiting for my son to finish his (college) homework so they can play.

Clearly there’s  a problem with Bailey’s plan though. Because my son stopped working to take a picture of Bailey and email it to me.

I can’t imagine where my son gets that tendency toward procrastination.  It’s a total mystery. And that rumor about me procrastinating on revising the dragon chapters is not true! It’s just that the witches I’m playing with right now are all shiny and sparkly–that’s not procrastination, it’s just trying to capture the story before it loses it’s luster.  Totally logical.

And if my agent is reading this–umm–I’m mentally plotting revisions not procrastinating!

Dang, I don’t even think Bailey believes me. Just look at that face. Sigh.

    Aww poor Bailey. Having to wait for his daddy to finish working has to be hard. At least he’s patient about it.

    I’ve been procrastinating for the past couple days. Or maybe I’ve just been lazy. Today, though, I have to get back to work. No distrac…

    Ooo, a sparkly!

    Bailey needs to come to your house! He can chase those sparkly witches away so you can get back to the care and feeding of dragons. Just sayin’!

    I wouldn’t know about shiny things. No. Really. Why are you laughing? :-P

    My little guy gives me that same face – no really, except for their coloring, Buddy & Baily have VERY similar faces, only Buddy’s ears stick up. I call them his bat-ears.
    PS: you don’t need to justify procrastination to me … ;)

    B.E. where? Where’s the sparkly??? LOL! It’s so easy to get distracted. You’ll get back to it–didn’t you get a lot of words written last weekend?

    Silver, Bailey would chase them away, but he’d take all my attention! Bailey is coming for Thanksgiving though. I’m very excited. Wizard is shaking his head, pointing out I’ll be busy cooking and entertaining. Whatever…

    I can’t help but laugh–we both are easily distracted sometimes!

    Ban, the picture I saw of your puppy was sooo cute! I don’t know how you resist! Bailey’s ears stick up or do whatever he wants. He has very expressive ears :-)

    He is too cute. The longing to play is very clear.
    Now why would you think your son was procrastinating? I’m sure he just wanted you to see how cute Bailey was being and then got right back to work :). Yes – I know – not very likely. Seems there is always something better to do than school work or revisions ;).
    I bet those shiny witches are tons of fun right now.

    Procrastination….nooooo! Not me! I swear, I just multi-task! Like now, I’m writing my papers, and reading your blog! :wink:

    Bailey is a cutie! Wish my dogs would look so cute. *sigh* They are just rotten!

    Viki, LOL! Yeah, I’m sure my son wasn’t procrastinating at all! Or me!

    But who can resist those little faces :-)
