  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A dog that piled on the pounds when a fear of open spaces left her unable to go for walks has lost half her weight after undergoing counselling.

Border Collie-cross Lucy ballooned to 5st 3lbs when her 'nervous character' prevented her from going outside for exercise.

But the three-year-old has now slimmed to just 2st 9lbs after completing a training programme that tackled her 'behavioural problems'.

Bet her first owners are the source of that fear. :td:

We had a dog when I was a kid that was deathly afraid of lightning and thunder.  We were her only owners and have no idea why she was like this.  We would let a full grown German Shepard, that was usually a outside dog, in the house.  She would sit on your lap, give you a frightened look and lick your face and whine.
