Sometimes, you get overwhelmed. And sometimes, you want to just stop everything. And sometimes, your body responds and shuts down because you can’t deal. It sounds extreme but it happens.
Ask Casey, she knows. A video of this dog so overcome with emotion that she passes out is making the rounds again on YouTube. The best guess is that she hyperventilated, or perhaps she literally couldn’t even (not a medical diagnosis).
The cute dog, who looks like a salt-and-pepper-colored Miniature Schnauzer, ecstatically greets her person, Rebecca, with the usual hugs and kisses and jumping and wagging. But oh, after a minute, it’s too much, and the sweet, overjoyed dog lies down motionless.
Rebecca is happy, too, then very concerned. But Casey manages to get back up again and wag more.
A follow-up note on the YouTube page shows that Casey visited the vet and is in good health. We think she simply couldn’t handle it that day, and we know how she feels.
