1. At least yours aren't actually IN your lap,

like my cats when I'm trying to eat any kind of meat. I'm thinking of becoming a vegetarian just so I don't have to fight off cats in order to eat lunch.

Obviously your dogs and cats haven't eaten in... minutes.

"Are you gonna eat all that? Can I have some? Pleeeeeease?"

4. They do that no matter what you eat!

Was laughing one time my Lab was watching my husband make a sardine sandwich, her face was about 3 inches from the sandwich. I know this sounds gross, but if you aren't paying attention, she will try to lick your dinner plate. She gets strongly reprimanded for doing that! But it doesn't stop her from trying again!

that was frying in the skillet and flipped it onto the floor so he and his pal could enjoy it. He did it in less time than it took me to type this.

As best we could figure out, one of our neighbors must have been grilling steaks outside and not been watching carefully enough.

Never did find out where it came from - didn't ask around too much either...

47. We let her keep it - at least some of it

You probably shouldn't reward that behavior - but you couldn't take that prize away from her.

My grandparents were visiting at the time and I think we were having hamburgers for dinner - I remember my grandfather repeatedly saying (in his English accent) "That bloody cat eats better than we do". I think he was considering taking the steak for himself!

and are easily able to abscond with a steak off your grill and disappear into the shrubbery before you ever even see them.

74. That reminds of the time

my wife was asking me why I was messing with her deck of Tarot cards. She is into that sort of stuff and I am not - so she thought I was moving it or hiding it from her.

I was defending myself saying that I had not touched it and she didnít believe me. Just as it was about to turn into a real argument, the cat walked through the room carrying the deck of cards in her mouth.

We both cracked up.

I can never resist those intense little upturned faces, the pleading eyes, and mental waves of entreaty. Many a hearty BLT sammich has been transformed into an almost veggie version with just the essence of bacon because of my own gang of adorable beggars.

Drives me nuts.

The other day, one of the cats was reaching under the microwave to see what he could find and he got his claw stuck in there. What an ordeal. We got it out without hurting him, but geez.

Frickin' cat.

Our mini-doxie once nonchalantly filched an entire sandwich that my husband had just sat down with on his lap, in front of the TV. All he could do is watch in amazement as the little doggie wolfed it down.

18. We had a rottie and cats. Cat could open the refrigerator.

We bought a roast and put it in the 'frig. We went out for the afternoon. Cat had apparently opened the refrig door and walked away.

Rottie grabbed the roast and it was demolished. We came home to a wet floor and saran wrap on the floor.

We actually drilled a hook and eye onto the frig door.

I came around the corner into the kitchen once.
One of my cats, a little Siamese, was rooting in the garbage can, tossing stuff out.
My dog, a Rottie/Shepherd mix, was... holding the top of the can open!

I said, "HEY!"
Never seen them both jump so high.

Whenever I ate green beans, I would pour the water from the can in his bowl and he would like it up like it was champagne. He was wonderfully weird in many ways. He lived to be 16 and was in great health.

"Maple kind, yeah?" into as many conversations as possible.

For example we are going into an arboretum and I asked if they had evergreens, and so on.

Just as we are about to pass the gate I stop and ask "do you have leafy trees, you know maple kind, yeah"

using the same voice of the dog.

Goal is to use it about 30 times a day.

As I reached for it saying "Give me that!" she took off down the hall to her favorite window, hacking all the way lol.

77. I love their eyes!

Each of your friends has that "hey, I like bacon!" look in their eyes.

We had to euthanize our Cocker Spaniel, Bubba, several weeks ago. He was more than 16-years old and it was time. He loved food! I've said that if he had an unlimited amount of food, he'd eat until he puked then he'd eat the vomit! We miss our buddy.

Don't succumb to their pleading eyes! Stay strong! It's your food! Your healthy pets will survive on the healthy diet you're already providing them with. This is especially obvious in your dog on the right side of the picture!

By the way, did you ever watch Neil DeGrasse Tyson's "Cosmos"? There's an episode where he talks about the unique relationship between canines and early humans. It's a fascinating exposition of how wolves and humans developed a symbiotic relationship.

Here's the YouTube episode and advance to about the 3:00 mark:
