King of the wild frontier

While tromping through the woods with Memphis last weekend, we happened upon the biggest pawprints I think I’ve ever seen. Being the expert tracker that I am, I immediately identified the prints as bear tracks.

Here’s a picture of Memphis’ paws beside one of the prints, taken with the tail from my coonskin cap held out of the way:

When I got home, the stupid Internet said that a bear track looks like this:

And a dog track looks like this:


Which is pretty much exactly what we found. Oh well. Still, we must have been hot on the heels on one big effing dog. Something like an English Mastiff:

or a Giant Pomeranian:

Perlson — And by “hate” you mean “secretly love.” Perlson — Thanks for your commitment to error-free comment-leaving. And no, I will not “eat your dog.”
