    My dog is BACK! Several weeks ago we had a crazy thunderstorm, and Zoe took of running. After I chased her down and got her back home, she wasn't the same for weeks. She was terrified to go outside and would just shake. We put her temporarily on Prozac and began desensitization techniques.

    For the past few days she has been almost back to normal! She isn't afraid to go outside and doesn't jump at every little noise. We talked to the vet and are going to wean her off the prozac over the next two weeks. We pray that it's not the meds that is the main factor because we really don't want her on them. We've worked very hard every day with the re-training, so are hopeful that this has had the most impact.

    Wish us luck!
