The Traveler and His Dog

posted in Dog, People |

A Traveler was about to set out on a journey, when he saw his Dog standing at the door stretching himself.

The Traveler asked the Dog sharply: “Why do you stand there gaping? Everything is ready but you, so come on, hurry up.”

The Dog, wagging his tail, replied: “O, master! I am quite ready; I am just waiting for you.”

Moral: The person who procrastinates often blames delay on his more active friend.
