    This adorable silver Labrador retriever from Michigan eats every meal in a special highchair, but that’s only because of her severe health issue. Tinker “Tink” Vol was born with a medical condition called Megaesophagus, which is why the poor dog can’t swallow food properly and has breathing problems.

    Usually, animals with this disease are euthanized, but thanks to her loving family, Tink received a second chance to live a happy life. By sitting upright in a special chair, the pooch can eat several small meals throughout the day as her throat is massaged.
