The Begging Circle

In our house, eating is often a competitive activity.  Not human vs. human, but mostly human vs. basenji.  Any time we have food in our hands (which, admittedly, is quite often), we have two furry followers at our heels, waiting patiently for a handout or a dropped crumb.  When we go on vacation with my parents the begging circle expands to three, as my parents' Shiba Inu, Tucker, is also a consummate beggar.  And now, it looks like we have a human addition to the begging circle: the baby is getting in on the action!

Much to the dogs' dismay, the baby gets priority over the handouts :-)  Sometimes, it's tough to be a dog!
