OK, so I don't like skateboards. It's hardly my fault, though. Someone came flying up behind us several weeks ago - startling Mom and me. Now every time I hear a skateboard I'm a wreck until I can see it leave. So today Mom's coworker, Cherie, brought one of her son's skateboards to work. Mom was playing with me and Cherie rolled it along and I got scared! Mom went over to it and showed it to me and called me over. I came but made sure Mom was between me and that sneaky beast! Mom petted me lots and that helped. Eventually I didn't go nuts as it rolled but I didn't want to go any where near it. Mom put my favorite toy on the skateboard and just kept rolling it away from me so I could watch it and chase it. I didn't chase it but followed from a distance. Finally I was able to go up and sniff it and got LOTS of praise. She gave me my toy and told me we would see this skateboard again sometime and put it away. I'm glad we ended while I was still brave!
