I am joyous about the food preparations and servings... but I have an irrational fear about tile floors!

I will eat on the edge of them, but not fully on top of them.

Mom, who welcomes and encourages me ANY and EVERYwhere... thinks I am persnickety, about the tile floors.

And really... I have been encouraged to walk on them, spoken to lovingly and cuddled on them. I sometimes sneak onto them, but feel "caught" when Mom finds me there.

I have been here 8 months, and in that time... she has never scolded me.

That is not to say that she has not been forceful in two commands... "come" and "drop it", but that's because my two favorite games are "hard of hearing" and "chase me"!

Yes. I am ornery.

I'm gradually growing in comfort, though, because in the last month... I've pranced confidently (and absent mindedly) into the bathroom to get loving from the Mom!

You have no idea how BIG that step is for Big Boy Bleu (aka Bleu Bear)!

hi bleu - mom told me about a stray she took care of a long time ago - before daddy - his name was Harding and he was terrified of the linoleum floor [your mom will know what linoleum is - now it's vinyl] anyway - Harding would absolutely NOT step on the linoleum - he was terrified - mom just figured somebody must have really punished him for getting on the stuff - he also HATED men - when mom first met daddy Harding grabbed him on his leg and bit right through his jeans -

Sometimes it takes a furry long time to get used to tile floors. Many years ago our momma rescued a Great Pyrenees, Willow, who was 'fraid of tile floors. Only trouble was that was the way to the backyard where "business" is accomplished. Mommy finally gave in and put down lots of rugs for her and by one the rugs got smaller and smaller and smaller until they were all gone! Our momma is sneaky, yes, she is☺
