This dog was born with a “mega-esophagus,” a condition that makes it difficult for his esophagus to propel food into his stomach. Without help, the food would become stuck in his throat. But thanks to this special chair, gravity can help his food finally reach his tummy.
We think that’s pretty darn cool! Not all pet parents are as patient as this man, especially when their fur baby has a disability. But let this go to show that disabilities are not the end of the world. This dog learned how to sit in a Bailey chair so that he can eat vertically. All he needed was a special piece of equipment and a patient daddy, and this disability has become just a cute quirk.
We hope this shows everyone out there that animals with disabilities can still make awesome and loving pets. In fact, we think a little quirk like this just adds to the appeal!

OK! I\’m not sure what to say to that one! Things that make you go hmmm?
