Mom decided to make some paw-print ornaments and you guessed it, it was our paws for the prints. It was really easy...mom mixed 2 cups all purpose flour, 1 cup salt and 1 cup water together.
Then she floured (not with flowers but with flour) a plate, smoothed some dough out then chased us around the house to stick our feet in it!!! Rebel was easy, she just picked him up and stuck his foot in it. Duncan just laid there and took it like a man....even Simon got one done (okay he was asleep and I don't think he even knew that mom had his foot)
I had no intentions on going down so easily. I've seen CSI and shows like that...once they get your prints on file they got ya for life!! It's all part of the plan of "da man!" Not that I'm a serial killer or anything, but I don't want that paw print popping up in some court case if I'm ever framed for de-stuffing an stuffed animal or digging a hole or whatever. Things I would NEVER do.... (whistle whistle)....
I ran from mom...around the kitchen table a few times. Then one time she got me, but I pulled away, sending dough and flour everywhere. Take that mom! But mom outsmarted me...she re-did the dough and then got out my leash...I can't believe I fell for the whole "going for a walk" crap...one on the leash I was trapped! Damn it!
I finally gave in and made my mark. I really hope this doesn't come back to haunt me...that da man' don't try to hold me down by framing me with my paw print!
Then mom baked the paw prints in the oven at 200 degrees for an hour or so, then left them out to dry completely. She said she's going to paint them then varnish them and sand down the edges...I guess they're cute, and Rebel is going to give his to his mom and dad (Granny and PawPaw) for Christmas. Even though they are incriminating, they are kinda cute!
