Binro the Heretic - 2014-10-19 We had a boxer mix who would make similar sounds when she wanted to go out or wanted a bite of what you were eating.
My mom would scowl and say, "Don't you use that tone with me, young lady!" and the dog would slouch and become the very embodiment of the term "hang-dog look". Sometimes, her performance would be rewarded with a doggy treat.
She was a sweet and good dog.
MacGyver Style Bomb - 2014-10-19 Had a black lab/doberman that would do the same thing. Shoo him away from the table and he would lay down in the corner with a loud groan.

full disclosure i got my mom to coax my dog off the bed on facetime to grab a treat that i fed her while she's across the country. She liked that a lot. (dog&mom)
