A Ghostly Paw Print

if you have been visiting.  this blog for a while, you will know that my name is gHosT (the dog).  i am the blog owners grand-dog.  it has been a while.   since I told you one of my stories.

you might remember that I sometimes have a small problem.  with authority.  i’ve had a few slight transgressions.  in the past.

on the whole i’m fairly well behaved now.   when I am at my own house.   if company doesn’t come to visit.   and I’m dog tired from a long walk.

when I go to the Grandma’s house.   well, let’s just say it will be a long time before they let me walk off leash again.   grandma lives in the country.   in a forest.   with so many interesting smells.   and wild animal trails to follow.   the last time I was there.   i just had to investigate one of these trails.   i was half way across the farmer’s field.   before it occurred to me.   that I was an unaccompanied minor dog.   someone was calling my name.   and they weren’t sounding all that pleasant.

the reason I’m here today.   is that the grandma dog is into this craft she calls ‘literary origami’.   it is really just book page folding.   if grandma gave me the book.   i could alter it in far more interesting ways.   than she does.   i would call it a ‘literary lunch’.   i’m sure a book would be good.   for many minutes of mutilation.   before i finally just ate it.

grandma folded a book for my family.   it is a dog’s paw print.   sort of.   that’s all I’m going to say.   except it doesn’t look much like my paw print.   at least I don’t think it does.   but as you can see from the photo above.    i see my feet from the top.   i don’t spend much time.   looking at the underside of my paw.   one thing I’m sure of though.   my paw isn’t wide like that.   it just isn’t.

i didn’t tell grandma that though.   i’ve learned that you don’t mess with Grandma.   you should have been there to hear.   the scolding I got after I finally returned.   from the trek across the farmer’s field.   you’d think she would have praised me.   for finally coming back…

anyway, here’s Grandmas folded book paw print.   she will tell you how to make it in her next post in a few days.   if you want to read more about me, click on the tag below.   with my name in it.   gHosT.

the grandma usually ends her posts by asking you a question.   i’m going to do that too.   maybe you can give me some advice.

if I should ever come across an unguarded book.   should I start with the front.   and digest it that way.   or should I start at the back.   and eat the ending first?

  1. This is funny, but in actuality our two pups are hooked on eating paper. Tissues, napkins, paper towels, it doesn’t matter, if you leave them out, they’re going to get consumed. They even go into waste baskets to root out paper. Either they’re trying to supplement something missing from their diet or they need serious counseling.

    As for the book origami, I think it looks just like a paw print so don’t let that dog get you down.

  2. Dear gHosT:
    Well the dog paw print, which IS likely modeled after YOUR paw print (like it or not) is very cool. I would suggest, that no one would want you to eat the beginning or the end of the book, so if you have to eat anything, I guess the cover would be the best way to go, as long as the title is still visible somewhere.

  3. Wonderful to see you again Ghost. I think Grandma has an amazing talent for literary origami and for giving your heart a voice on her blog. You are a sweetheart. ❤

  4. Dear gHosT: always start with the pages first. Far more fun to shake as you go.

    Dear Margy: Think you got it bad? Once we came home to find out our dog tore apart both the dog training manual AND the Bible!
