Description  
As with many Aldin subjects, the title pretty much tells the whole story. The puppies are waiting for breakfast or dinner to be served and they have learnt that to beg encourages humans to react both more kindly and more quickly to their wants. The dogs take on an almost human persona and of course, grace before a meal was much more common in many households in the Interwar years, between the First and Second World Wars.
