Aber always ate that way. He'd position himself so his stumpy front paws hugged the bowl and then proceeded to chow down. I always teased him that he was like a Roman emperor. He'd do that with the water bowl too. I always assumed it was just another aspect of his very lazy attitude. He's always been the biggest couch potato on the planet.
Sophie used to lay down when she ate when I first got her - she was 4 months old. She took her time and picked and it was not big deal. Now though - she is ready for her food and eats standing up! She doesn't inhale it - but she always eats steady until she licks the bowl clean! These are such cute pictures - your dogs seem to be very food comfie - sweet!
Yeah, they have been eating together very cozily the last few weeks. It hasn't always been this way though - Jon used to have serious resource guarding issues and would not let Dewi eat unless I put Dewi's bowl on the other side of the room.
Luna was eating at my mom's this way and she thought it was the most hilarious thing and took a picture. Luna noticed, and stood up, but still had one leg sticking out in back. Sorry for the bad quality, as it was taken with a cell phone.
