A dog got so excited at the sight of a duck it fainted.
Peter the cocker spaniel couldn't contain his happiness when he saw a flock of ducks during his morning walk and immediately fainted due to his rare condition called Myotonia Congenita.
The condition is a genetic disorder that affects skeletal muscles, which are used for movement, and is responsible for the eponymous 'fainting' seen in fainting goats when presented with a sudden stimulus.
The owner said: "Peter, our cocker spaniel, has a neurological condition which causes him to fall over at random moments, usually when he's scared or excited.
"We call it 'fainting goat syndrome'"
