Sweet little thing... I bet he or she did slip and slide on the floor. My old Dozer dog won't even attempt to walk on our linoleum. Thank goodness we don't have polished boards in our little house. At the moment its resembling a mat shop because we've had to place mats everywhere for him to cross the kitchen and dining area floor .. and our little boot room. He won't put his foot on it at all .. just stood there and cried .. till we figured out what was the matter. Now he's a happy old boy not having to worry about falling.
