Murphy has NEVER been allowed people food, but for some reason every time we're in the kitchen or have plates of food, he begs! I mean bad! He goes so far as to try and lay his head on my leg. It's very irritating to me since I hate nothing more than a begging dog. I think it's rude. I try to push him away and make him sit, but this has been going on for weeks, and it's not helping. Any ideas?
