But------WHOA, I need to tell you one other thing. I had my greyhounds with me, and we waited in the store's waiting room ( very uncomfortable chairs). I had to do some squirming from time to time, trying to maintain a level of comfort. During one of these moments, Power felt a surge of curiosity, and realized my hand was not tight on the leash, so he just "took off". I got up, and taking Fleur with me, we went to the back of the store where I had last seen the flick of his skinny white-tipped tail! We walked in several aisles, but no sightings. But, just as I wondered if I needed to go back to the waiting area, I saw Power, doing an excellent imitation of a spraddled creature. He had walked onto an area of vinyl floor which was extremely slippery. All four legs were in the four directions of the compass. I went to "rescue" him, still holding Fleur's leash, and she also became spraddled. As I tried to get them up and on to non slippery flooring, my own feet began to slide in opposite directions.

I guess three is a good number, because we three were able to lean on each other a bit and I finally got all three of us onto solid footing. The floor looked normal, but it was NOT normal. I'm surprised someone hasn't been injured.
