Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – One Hundred and Thirty-Five

The pawprints in the newly laid concrete were enormous.

“That sure as hell weren’t no kitty cat,” Cletus opined, hiding a grin

Elmo swallowed nervously. “I never wanna meet a cougar that big. We gonna fill the prints in?”

“Naw, let’s leave ‘em. It’ll give folks something to talk about.”

It did. The little path leading to the brothers’ double-wide became famous, featuring on local radio, and even one of them late night tv shows with talking dogs. 

Cletus decided it might be best not to ‘fess up, so he burned the leather ‘paw’ and kept his mouth shut.
