Dog eats in high chair. Tamala Edwards reports during Action News at 4:30 a.m. on November 7, 2017. (WPVI)

A dog in Grand Rapids, Michigan has a special condition that requires her to get extra special treatment at the dinner table.

Tink has been sitting in a special chair to eat her meals since 9-weeks-old.

The Labrador retriever suffers from Megaesophagus, meaning when Tink eats, the food and water never make it all the way to the stomach.

The chair keeps Tink in an upright position and gravity does the work her esophagus can't.
