My dog eats laying down? Does yours?

Postby WIDGEONATOR » Thu Oct 13, 2005 9:02 pm

I don't know what the deal is but my yellow lab eats laying down at least half the time. He is really tall, so I think he just hates to bend over. It is the funniest thing I have seen. One of these days I will get a picture and post it. He thinks he is a person, he nocks pillows off of the couch so he can sleep with a pillow like a person does. We have a swimming pool and instead of bending over to get a drink, he actually walks into the pool and drinks so he doesn't have to bend over?

I have a buddy who's yellow lab is a horse. Apparently bigger dogs have some trouble eating from the floor. They got a stand to put the dogs bowls on. It seems kind of silly. Just a thought.

harvey, it's not silly at all. this is very common with great danes and the like. as far as tall labs having a problem, mine is very tall and it doesn't seem to bother him a bit. of course, i think he would chew his own leg off if it meant he could have more to eat.
