Fun science fact: congenital megaesophagus is a condition some dogs suffer whereby their digestive system won't process food properly.

Because of this, certain dogs - like Bella, here, for example - are forced to eat while standing up so that their stomach can do its job properly.

But getting the poor pups to do this isn't just a case of asking them nicely or offering them a treat... you have to use a special chair.

Witness... the "Bailey Chair", where rescue dog Bella happily chomps away at her food whilst exposing her belly to her owners' camera, and so, the whole of the internet.

Now seven months' old and "doing great" - thanks to her video viral here, Bella now can join the cute-dogs-on-the-internet hall of fame, taking her place alongside reigning world champion "Boo" and Maggie The English Mastiff.
