Pleased to hear the dog is holding on there. And the dog with fits when excited is interesting ; some particular dogs have versions of puzzling human conditions, Cataplexy ( in which they collapse, awake but temporarily unable to move, when excited ) and Narcolepsy ( in which someone falls asleep suddenly and without warning.) --- I used to know a doctor with it, who once before an audience of students was teaching them how to examine the abdomen. And he sat at the patient's bedside, placed his stethoscope on the patient's belly to listen for bowel sounds, and fell asleep. It was 10 minutes before a passing nurse recognized what had happened, while the rapt audience of students was still watching, puzzled, at how long it took to do this.
