I gotta admire Dreyfus' plucky determination. He always begs. He (almost) never succeeds.

Tonight he pulled out all the big guns. First he hit me with the "stare directly at the food" trick, which was easy to defend against. Then he hit me with the "look at the food, look at me, look at the food, look at me..." trick. This one was a bit harder, but I've seen it enough times that it didn't get to me. The real problem came when Dreyfus went to the "head on lap with sad eyes" trick. I managed to defend against this trick, but only just barely.
