No cake for you, pup!
An adorable French bulldog was sitting at a table in Tokyo when his owner began eating some cake.
Video shows the dog smile and huff at the camera until his owner takes a bite, at which point he becomes stony-faced and observant.

The pet's face freezes as his eyes fixate on the cake's travels from its place to his owner's mouth
The pet then grunts and paws at his human expectantly, begging for a piece of the cake.
The bulldog's eyes become fixated on the cake as he makes excited noises, all the while pausing each time his owner eats a piece.
The dog eventually gives up and burrows his head under the table, as it looks like his owner goes in for a sympathetic petting.
It is probably for the best that the pup was not given a slice of cake, despite the potential for short-term reward.
Daily Mail previously reported how Mumsnet user BellaGoth's mischievous Labrador had eaten an entire bag of sugar while she left her shopping on the kitchen table to feed her daughter.

She reassured fellow mums that although the pooch was 'fine' now he had been sick all over her bed, duvet, mattress and carpet - and she was now in need of a new bed.
One user said their brother's German Shepherd had eaten the contents of the fridge on Christmas Eve.
POISONED AT HOME
More than 10,000 dogs a year are poisoned after eating everyday items such as paracetamol and chocolate, a pet charity warned last year.
The Kennel Club says seemingly harmless foods such as hot cross buns and onions can be killers – and is urging owners to be alert to the threat.
Around 56,000 dogs were treated for poisoning between 2010 and 2014, according to figures compiled by the charity and the Veterinary Poisons Information Service. Of those, 470 dogs died.
