He needs counseling...

My poor dog.

He is so attached to me that he cannot stand to have me do ANYTHING other than pay attention to him straight time.

I played with him ALL morning then settled in to write.

He started dropping chew toys on my keyboard. I threw them for a long while and far enough each time that I hoped to wear him out so he'd take his nap.

But NOOOO. He kept dropping slimy toys on my fingers as I tried to type. I started hiding his chew toys. He totally freaked out. Huffed at me and started digging in the couch like it was a pile of dirt because I guess he smelled his toys. I'd stuffed them deep in the crack.

While he was busy in Plan B attempt to chew my sectional into shreds to rescue his toys, I took that opportunity to type.

He wised up and did what you see in the picture above.

Yes, threw half his body over my keyboard so I would stop typing and pay attention to him.

I am SO ready for this dog to take a nap so I can finish my proposal.

In the meantime, here's a small glimpse into the glamorous life of a writer battling chew toy slime and dogs with serious cyber-rivalry.

Off to write....

I imagine it's hard to turn down this adorable pup!

CandaceCalvert said...

Oh that is completely hysterical!
Reminds me of our (much missed) mini schnauzer, Heidi. She was so insistent on attention, and prone to melodramatic fits of pouting.
Thank you for sharing--I'm still laughing!

Bonnie Calhoun said...

Aughhh geez...look at that can you turn him away? *sigh* I'd never get any work done!

Cheryl Wyatt said...

Donna, it IS hard. LOL! He knows how to push the guilt buttons for sure.



Cheryl Wyatt said...

Candace, I know. He is too cute to scold. I'm scared of what he does to my computer when I'm not in the room. LOL!


Cheryl Wyatt said...

Bonnie...I know. It's SO hard. He's FINALLY taking a nap. I'm writing my brains out before he wakes up. Took a break to attend to blog comments while I wait for the coffee to finish brewing.

Lol Cheryl!
That sounds like Maddie when I'm doing homework....or anything for that matter!! : P

Good luck with the writing!

Pamela Meyers said...

Cheryl, He's too cute for words. What a face.

Cheryl Wyatt said...

Hey Hannah! I'm glad I'm not alone in my struggle. LOL!

Cheryl Wyatt said...

Pam, he IS cute which is why I feel so guilty typing when he sags that furry head and wilts his floppy satellite ears in a way that makes me know he's NOT happy with this arrangment. LOL!


Project Journal said...

Lol! You're DEFINITELY not alone, girl!

No worries!

Camy Tang said...

You must FIGHT THE CUTENESS!!!! I struggle with the same thing with Snickers when she interrupts my writing to lay her head in my lap and look up at me with her sad eyes.

Carla Gade said...

This is to funny. Your dog is really cute. My cat whines all the time when I try to do anything either.

Cheryl Wyatt said...

YES AND AMEN, Camy! I MUST fight the cuteness. I WILL fight the cuteness.

I WILL be the pack leader. LOL!



cheryl wyatt said...

Carla, that's funny about the cat. They REALLY have attitude, even moreso than dogs.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care all.


Vader's Mom said...

That's the funniest thing!! Vader loves to try and get our attention if we are using our laptops, but being as large as he is he can't do that!! Hope you were able to get a little writing done. Too hard to ignore that much cuteness!

Edna said...

That is the way My daughter's cat used to be before he got out and ran in the path of a car. We have not had any pets since, get too attached to them


Ausjenny said...

I new there was a reason I dont have a pet (could also be im scared of dogs)

Anonymous said...

What kind of dog is this?


Cheryl Wyatt said...

Susan, it's a Yorkie (Yorkshire Terrier). I shave his hair during certain seasons because he jumps in the pool with us. Normally he is a lot more fluffy. LOL!
