Does your pet stand, sit or lay down when they eat

This may sound like a silly question, and well it probably is, but I am just curious.
Do your pets stand, sit or lay down when they eat.
Joey lays down when he eats. I have never seen a dog do this before so I am just wondering what anyones elses dogs or cats do.

Boo lies down naturally. He's the first doggy I've seen do that. Jemma stands but if we pass by, she'll lie down too. We prefer her lying down because she slows down a bit.

Winnie stands when she eats her food and lays down when she sneaks around to get the cats food.

Dodger stands when I given him his food in a bowl but I mostly give it to him in his treat ball so he usually has no choice in the matter !

Mine stands. Her food is raised off the floor, she wouldn't even reach it if she layed down.

Layla stands when she eats, but if it's a treat then she'll run off and lie down to eat it. Especially if it's something tough like brocoli stems.

Funny enough both my guys alternate between standing and sitting - including my handicapped girl. YES!!! Heidi does try to stand to eat

Valentin sits if he is alone in the kitchen to eat (and feeling lazy). If Heidi is around then he stands (better to defend his bowl - or sneak over to her's)

If Sprint is really hungry, he just stands and inhales it. But most of the time, only if I am in the room with him, or tell him it's ok to go eat. Must be something from a previous owner. Then there is the odd time, he picks at it. He will grab a mouthfull and go lay on his bed or one of the carpets and eat the kibble one piece at a time. Then go back to get another mouthfull and it starts all over.

The cats lie down to eat, but Dory will throw a piece kibble up into the air and when it falls on the ground she races over to eat it, this is her private game, she doesn't like us to watch her eat her dry food, (she thinks there will be less chance of her getting human food ~ even though she only gets human food at grandma's house). Trigger always stands.

Candi does a little of each. Sometimes she'll stand, most times she will sit, and sometimes she will lay down. Sometimes she even takes a mouth full from the bowl run off somewhere else drop the peices and lay down or stand and eat them from there. She's a bit weird, just like her mama.
