The day before we said goodbye to Danny Coon, we invited him to sign the family guestbook.

I remember Danny's paw prints all over the dark blue linoleum on the kitchen floor, especially when he had been eating Pablum baby cereal, which was very sticky.
Three years later, Rackety, our second coon, left paw prints all over my father's station-wagon. In the early morning he'd walk in the dew on the top of the car. Then he'd push open one of the small ventilator windows (if it have not been locked shut) and walk around inside the dusty car, leaving muddy prints!
