How to mooch (ask) effectively

How you ask for something is very important.  Depending on who you're asking affects how you ask.

For example, my Dad gives me whatever I want.  I put my paws on the table and look at him, I get food.  I whimper or whine, I get food.  He pretty much does what I ask, and that makes my life so much easier.

Now, my Mom, she's a different story.  I have to use a different technique to get something from her.  While she's eating, I quietly rest my head on her lap so when she looks down, this is what she sees:

Look at how cute I am, and look at those big, beautiful eyes just wishing for some of her food.  How could she resist?  I don't make any noise, I just stare at her.  The amazing part is that she gets the message, and I get to lick her plate - after she puts it on the floor.

My Dad, on the other hand, holds the plate while I lick it.  He thinks it's easier for me when he holds the plate up to my face.  Here's a secret:  I could care less; just let me lick the plate already!

Like I always say, ask politely and appropriately when you want something.  If you do everything right - like me - you'll get what you want, plain and simple.  You can't go wrong when you follow my excellent advice, especially when it comes to mooching because I am THE EXPERT!
