Dog Owners, A Question :)
I love dogs but I don't own one. I have two cats :)
The begging thing, why is it that so many people put up with or seem to encourage it? I really don't enjoy eating while being started at. The sighs, the staring, the inching slowly closer LOL!! One dog I kept moving my plate as a barrier so he couldn't stare into my eyes, it drove him crazy, starting moving all around freaking out.
But seriously, it drives me nuts. A few friends I just don't ever do dinner at their house because of it. They say "Oh, he's just looking, not doing anything."
So what gives? Is it something you just learn to ignore? Very, very few people I know have dogs who don't beg, either staring or worse. And, what is a good way for your guests to maybe deal with it?
