Good thing our dog doesn't beg

We have a strict policy at our house - no feeding dogs from the table, or really, no feeding dogs people food. Then, Elias had a tumor removed that we were told would come back in 4-6 months, and that we should spoil him, feed him whatever he wanted, and love him lots in the time we had left.

That was almost two years ago. Unfortunately, we've taken the vet's advice to heart, and now we have a horribly spoiled dog who most definitely does beg. Even though he KNOWS he's not supposed to.

No begging here. Just looking pathetic and starved and unloved. And if you're not going to finish that...

Pssst! Hey! Hey mom! You don't really want that last bite, do you?

And la piece de resistance... full-on Mutant Dog begging (best watched with sound):


I can't decide if my favorite part is where he keeps staring at the plate, or when he lays down and is like "NOW GIVE ME A PIECE BECAUSE I'M A GOOD DOG!" Gotta keep your eyes on the prize, right?

  2. He's so mistreated. I'm googling 'how to mail a dog a donut' because I feel so bad for him.

    1. Good puppy dog eyes and expressive eyebrows are key for begging.

  4. Haha! My bonus dog does that, but he weighs 12 lbs, so it's really hilarious when he starts growling at you.

    3. Eurgh phone autocorrect. I promise I can spell Brego!
      Beware the offers extended on the Internet! I may well take you up on that suggestion ;-p

    4. Don't worry, the latest autocorrect for Brego is Berg. Which means "mountain" in German so I suppose SIRI sort of knows what she's talking about?

  10. Our dogs don't beg till they hear a knife scrape an almost empty plate. Then it's "WATCH OUT STARVING DOGS COMING!"

    I blame my mom.

    1. Hahaha, excellent timing! Elias doesn't do anything until you're down to the last bite or two. Then all bets are off.

  11. You think that's bad, you should see our house.... three dogs staring pathetically at us like they are dying of starvation. And one of our cats is the worst begger of them all - she literally will come up next to you, reach her paw out, and grab whatever you have on your fork!
