Time for a Study Break

"You're too buried in your books!" So says my pooches. Focusing is impossible when I have cuties like this girl distracting me.

Peaches seeking out lovin'.
This little begger is trying to convince me to put down the homework and cuddle or bring her up into my lap. (Either option is a recipe for productivity disaster!) There is no whining. No barking. She's digging very adamantly at the armrest, my pant leg, even my laptop stand. When I reach down to pet her she leans way in to use my arm for leverage to lift herself up. When that doesn't work she pushes my arm over her head with her nose and stares up at me with these "love me" eyes. She isn't demanding. If anything, her subtle clingy nature makes her harder to pass over.

I mean, look at that face. Look at those precious, "I'm so cute and adorable" eyes. Her sweet, polite way of pausing every so often instead of barking obnoxiously. The way she'll resort to staring innocently up at me, perking up her ears and wagging her tail as if to say: "Cuddle time?" 

How am I supposed to resist?


  1. Oh my gosh, she's SO CUTE! No wonder you're distracted :). What type of dog is she?

    1. She's an 11-year-old Maltese. :) We've had her since she was a puppy, so she's my little soul buddy and pal. (Our Shih-tzu is another of my babies that we've had since a puppy, but she isn't as clingy as Peaches, the Maltese, is). And her - well, both of them, really - cuteness is a minute-to-minute distraction. Pets should come with a Warning: Distraction Abound label. ;)

  2. I totally agree with you about pets coming with a warming sign ;D! I love the name Peaches for a dog by the way!! Also, I've nominated you for a Liebster Award. If you want to participate, read about it in this blog post

    1. Thank you! That's my - uh - "creative" younger self's doing. Although she is all white now, when we first brought her home she had peach colored ears.

      Double thank you! :) I will definitely go read all about it and participate.
      Hope you are doing well!
