These 15 Dogs are Experts at Begging for Food

It’s no secret that we, dogs, love to eat. Now let me be clear. Our “dog” food is passable, and we’ll eat it when necessary, but what we really want is your food, human food. There is absolutely no comparison. Let me just muse for a moment: bacon, steak, burgers, salmon, basically whatever you guys eat, we want. Just the smell of your food drives us crazy. Ugh, just thinking about it makes my tummy rumble.

How do you know we’re hungry? Some of us will whine (a lot) as dinner time approaches. Others will stand right under your feet as you’re cooking. And most of us will sit beside your chair as you eat, hoping for a dropped morsel or a generous hand-out. Begging is never beneath us.

But here’s the good news! As much as we love to eat, we love you more! A recent scan of our brains concluded that dogs love their owners at least as much as they love food. Out of all the dogs used in the research, 20 percent showed more activity in their reward centers when they received praise, which means that we adore attention from you even more than we do a piece of bacon. How about that?!

1. “Yes! Yes! That piece there would be perfect. I’ll take it!”
