Funny thing is, I'll say "Hondo! That's Rude!" and he'll move. Nearly ever time the guest says, "Oh no, I don't mind!" I think Hondo brain washes them.
My Maddie used to do this when we had people over for dinner. The rule in our house is that she has to be lying down when humans eat. She can beg with her eyes all she wants but nothing physical or vocal. Also, she knows she won't get anything from us until we are finished and then only occasionally.

At dinner parties she invariably chooses the softest, most symphathetic person in the room and lays by them ingnoring us. She still has to play by the house rules but she also knows she will get "paid" by the hapless guest and patiently waits staring at them like she hasn't been fed in a week.

She lied to the other dogs so she could get what she wanted!
Maddie would do this to my sister's beagle when he lived with us for a while. Chance was a sneaky dog and would steal Maddie's bed on occasion. Maddie never liked confrontations so she would instead bark at the door until Chance got up off her bed. Then she would retake her bed. She almost never barks at our door and there was nothing out there anyway. Just her own sneaky way to reclaim her territory.

Angelina03 When he feels he's not getting enough attention, Rocco sneaks into the bed room, grabs something out of the laundry or one of papa's shoes, and prances around in front on me so that I can chase him. Lol.

sheplvr My seven month old, Sarah, sometimes likes to take a big bite of toilet paper out of the roll when I am in the shower. It gets annoying to have holes through the roll. I hope she out grows this.

FrankieC I had a "no bed" policy with Riley but he seemed to think that only applied when I was awake. As soon as I was sound asleep he would creep in beside me, which is no small feat because I am an incredibly light sleeper.

Can't tell you how many times I woke up with his cold, wet nose about an inch from mine.

lennyb I know this post is a month old but I had to chime in. My boy has a unnatural attraction to dryer sheets. When my wife is folding clothes he sneaks around til he sees one then its game on. He'll grap it and take off and make us chase him for it..

scout172 Scout will bump his thigh against the door until it pops open. Then he will try to be as quiet as he can and grab a stuffed animal that is not his. If I catch him he makes me chase him around the house.

Discoetheque Discoe has taught herself how to shiver, in order to get let in from outside.
It started in the winter, when I would go to my friends' house to hang out. She would be kenneled outside with a buddy, doghouse, straw, water, toys, the whole nine.
But when I would go to check on her, and she would be shivering next to the door. Her coat's not as heavy as some other GSDs, so it was an easy assumption to make that she was actually cold. And I don't kennel at home, so she's not as acclimated to the cold as her friends were.
So we would bring her inside every time I saw her do this.

Summer rolls around, and I'm at my friend's house. We kennel her with a buddy, toys, water, etc and I go inside. Go to check on her a little while later, and what do you think Discoe is doing?
Sitting at the door, shivering.
In 75 degree weather.
Sneaky dog just didn't want to be kenneled.
I ignored her BS all summer, and eventually, she stopped doing it.

SummerGSDLover My Yogi will steal ny sons diapers out of the package. Sometimes he'll grab four or five at a time and just drop them all over the room. Haha

Darth_Ariel Vader will lean against doors hoping if he does it just right this one particular door will pop open so he can go snooping for loot (tissues, socks, ect).
He pulls pot holders and dish towels off the stove when you're not looking and in the kitchen and run off with them.
This being his first Christmas he has pulled a few ornaments off the tree and ran away with them.

And his favorite is doing whatever he can to steal donuts from the box on the counter, which includes a very methodical scaling of cabinetry to gain access to the very middle of the counter.
