So I'm making dinner and Murphy starts to beg. This is an annoying habit that he's developing despite my refusal to ever hand him anything.
Wouldn't you know it, but just as soon as I tell him "no" with a firm voice, I go and drop a fair-sized portion of the food on the floor literally right into his waiting mouth.
Right now, he's probably noting in his "English to Dog" dictionary that "No! Aw, Dammit!" really means "Thank you for your patience. This is for you."
