I have been trying to explain this to him for several minutes, but he's just not getting the point. I have let him sniff the apple, and he walks away, giving me a disgusted look, but the moment I bite into the apple myself, he comes up and starts scratching my legs trying to get a bite of the apple.
Clearly, this is a failure to communicate, and I'm helpless in this situation. So, if someone could just pop up here for a bit, I'd really appreciate it. I'll make double chocolate fudge as a payment, I'm that desperate.
