Having a pet can bring you infinite joy because you always have someone by your side that loves you unconditionally. But for that, they will ask for a bite or two of what you’re eating and if you ignore them, they will sit there and stare at you with such miserable eyes that you will not be able to resist giving them what they’re asking for.

Twitter user @PatinkinMandy shared a photo of how his dog was begging him for the soup he was eating. In response to this tweet, people shared their own dogs’ irresistible gazes and here are the ‘looks’ from their dogs that owners have to deal with.

The original tweet got 220k likes and was posted by Mandy Patinkin, an actor, singer, and as he likes to refer to himself, a humanitician. He has almost 300k followers and he uses his platform to bring attention to issues that he considers to be important, the latest being encouraging people to sign a petition to cancel the death penalty to a man he thinks doesn‘t deserve it.

But not all Mandy Patinkin’s posts are so serious. The post about his dog, whose name is Becky, was one of those lighthearted and relatable situations. People loved the photo and started sharing how their dogs beg for food when they sit down to eat.

Even if the dogs have just eaten or if it's food that is not meant for pets—it doesn't matter, the owner's heart still breaks from not giving their beloved doggo anything when they see that not only their eyes but their drool also shows how bad they want a taste of what you're having.

Puppy eyes are a powerful weapon that make the owner weak and they fail to resist the manipulation. But how can one say no when a dog is sitting there patiently—you just have to reward it for being a good boy.

It could be that the word ‘manipulation’ is too strong for describing the way dogs look at us, but dogs quickly figure out that this facial expression works. Researchers say that the muscle with which dogs lift their inner eyebrows is not present in wolves, so that means it could be that this feature evolved for dogs to better communicate with humans.

I cannot comprehend these words.

But why can't we resist those big round eyes and do whatever it takes to please our pets? Humans as a species use their eyes a lot to communicate and bond. The same happens when we look at our dogs’ eyes. It could be that our pets' eyes reminds our subconscious of the big and round eyes babies have. Humans are always more attracted to infantile looks that are associated with cuteness, and now even dogs have evolved to have them.

I just realized right now I’m eating a bagel and my dog is sitting in a chair right in front of me, staring over the top of my iPad.

One time when I was little we were having a dinner party in the backyard. My dog loves food. She went around and drank all the cocktails, got drunk, chased all the children to get their ice cream, ate the ice creams, and that was the Jenny fiasco(the dog’s name is Jenny)

That is the most casual, laid-back begging I have ever seen. Somebody seems very confident of getting a taste otherwise he/she would be drooling on your feet.
