I know it's easier said than done, but try not to be nervous about your daughters dogs. I find it's always best to have some nibbles to give to dogs you don't know, especially the first few times. They rapidly become your best friends
I was savaged by a squirrel as a kid (well it mistook my leg for a tree or something and ran up it, but it's little razor claws made a bit of a mess) and I still get that irrational butterfly feeling if I see one getting to close

Truth be told I'm not fond of any animal. However, my mother loved squirrels and would coax them to eat out of her hand. Now we (my sisters and I), jokingly, say Mom (deceased) visited today whenever we see a squirrel.
