The dog only begs and whines because he has been conditioned to believe it will get results. Someone has been feeding the dog at the dinner table otherwise he would have learned that it is a total waste of energy. Not all dogs beg for food - only the ones who have achieved results do. I do not understand why you label the dog as weak.

I have this little weak dog who whines a lot. He's always at the dinner table begging for food, as all dogs do. But due to him being so weak, in my regular, unmitigated, natural lack of compassion, I justify not giving him table food due to my disgust at his whiny attitude.
It is not the dog who is weak!! The dog has great intelligence.
So yesterday, after looking this pitiful dog in his eyes, I realized I was looking at myself. Suddenly, I was compelled to give him some food.
