I put this under Problem Behaviors because most people find begging to be troublesome. And so do we, most of the time. But Nemo’s got this look, that look on your left, that we just can’t get enough of. If we ask him to go to his bed and lay down he will, so it’s not like it’s uncontrolled. It’s just so danged adorable.
My parents can’t stand it. And can’t believe I let a dog beg at the table. (In my family, I’m kind of the "tough one" who doesn’t put up with much rude behavior – from dogs or people.)
This was the first time we grilled out this season and the smell of a steak (my husband eats it extra rare – ick!) was just too much for dear Nemo. He couldn’t help himself. And I couldn’t help but grab the camera and start snapping pictures.
All the dogs got a small taste of the disgustingly rare steak, by the way. (They seemed to like it just as much as my husband, go figure.) We did ask Nemo to do some extra tricks so that he didn’t get the steak for begging, but instead for his performance.
