There we waited it out, and it took a long while. I talked to several other visitors as time passed and slowly Hera let her toes relax, then she let her legs relax and finally she was standing in a normal stance. When that happened, I stood and began to walk through the store. Hera resisted at first and then started walking along without any trouble for about 40-50 feet. Then she froze up again and we repeated the process. This time she relaxed sooner and we went on through the store with her walking very naturally! YIPPEE! This is a huge victory!

Now it is two weeks later, and today we drove back to the Camping world store in Albuqurque, and after parking, we walked up to the front of the store and in a travelled spot in the front of the store both dogs relieved themselves ( yes, I had poop bags in my pocket), and on inside we went! Hera walked along the polished concrete floors without any trouble. I was quite pleased with her continuing progress on those floors.
During the month that I was at Bluewater lake state park, she never got over her fear of the vinyl floors in the office building, and she was very afraid of the vinyl floors in my motorhome. I ended up buying those rubber pads that are meant for kitchen floors in order to help her be more comfortable in my motorhome.
