I need advice about a craft project that will involve taking pawprints from my dog.

I'd like to incorporate my dog's pawprints into a greeting card I'm making, but I'm a bit chary. To do this, I'd need a dye that's relatively cheap, that will set quickly in paper, that's water-soluable, that will wash off easily, and that (most importantly) will not irritate my dog's pads, or make her sick if she ingests it.
Does anyone have experience with doing this? Any recommendations about dyes (or substances to use as dye?) Is this just completely inadvisable? Horror stories welcome, as long as they're even minimally substantiable.
