I had a Golden Retriever years ago that would lay down to eat but he also fell asleep during a "sit an stay " in obedience class too. My corgis would never consider laying down during the race we like to call eating!
Excuse me for chuckling at your "problem," but looking at your photo Jon has created a very good efficient angle for his head and neck for ingesting his food. (Corgis are very smart!) Dewi's head is angled way down which creates a good deal more swallowing effort. Your bowls are small and with sides very low to the ground. My two corgis eat their treats lying down and their two meals standing up, but their bowls have taller sides. True, their bowls never look as full as your little ones do. If Jon's ancient Roman reclining dining style really concerns you, you might try a higher sided mixing bowl and see if that forces Jon to stand up. If it does, then you know to look for a higher sided (probably bigger) bowl. You don't have to fill the probably larger feeding bowl, although I'm sure Jon wouldn't object.
Skip, you are very observant. :) Yes, the bowls are puppy-sized and that's 1/2 cup of food in there. :) I feel like as long as there's no indigestion, why force him to change? It kinda forces him to eat more slowly anyway. Dewi polishes his bowl in 30 seconds.
So I was looking to see if there were other corgis that ate sitting down. I was wondering if I had a lazy boy. Hercules likes to sit and eat. He used to inhale his food when he was younger, but now he has settled in and eats slower.
Taffy, join the club. So far, I think there are three members. :) Jon Farleigh has never once eaten a meal standing up, but I don't think it's laziness, and I'm thankful he doesn't inhale his food. :) Hercules is a cutie.
