Does this measuring tape look intimidating to you?
I was turning up some pants the other day, and at first I thought it was the iron or ironing board that had Emma our seven month old Morkie so jumpy, (I'll admit, I haven't ironed for quite some time!) but I soon deduced it was in fact, this limp yellow measuring tape that was the culprit. I laughed to myself when she first growled at it, she crept closer and then bolted to the wall farthest across from where I was working. And stayed there; wide-eyed watching.
I am getting used to Emma occasionally taking a dislike to something for no particular (to me at least) reason. My husband's pipe comes to mind, a pottery bell hanging from our deck, the wind. Last week it was the sun casting shadows from behind the trees onto my shower curtain that had her tail in a knot! I guess it's a big scary world when you are so new and tiny.

Once I'd finished my project I threw the tape on the rug halfway and waited to see what would happen. Very gingerly she crept forward and it was lovely to see that moment she first realized it was harmless :)
