DOMINO & DANTE: A 'DUAL' PURRSPECTIVE

This is a portrait of Dante and Domino on the back deck in September of 2011.  I used a watercolour effect to, hopefully, great effect.

I think it's one of the cutest pictures of the two of them together.  Dante looked quite majestic and seems to overpower the shot, yet your attention is drawn to this little black and white head peeping out from under the deck.

This picture also emphasizes the massive difference in the size between the two.  Why Dante's tail virtually dwarfs little Domino!  Nevertheless, as in life, she dominated him.  Domino was and is a tiny tyrant.

That Domino's a SWAT team all on her own!

DOMINO: HATTY CATTY IN LATE SEPTEMBER

Domino has chosen today's ensemble based on the latest buzz that "Orange is the New Black".

(Biggify for best view)

Her butterfly friend is smiling with approval at her orange, brown and black striped flapPURR hat adorned with orange flower and ribbon.  Her gorgeous necklace is strung with citrine and fire opals, and her bracelet is also composed of bright orange citrines.   And Domino's black and brown purse with orange geometric shapes is a great match for her retro hat.  She's found a good place for it to hang, too -- between the ears of that metal cat ornament!

"I has always bin a fan of black becuz it goes wif my complexion", says Domino.  "But orange reely spices fings up, and it's a wondahful contrast to my black and wite furs."  Spoken like a true fashion icon!



"I sooooo happeh!"

DOMINO: HOW TO MAKE THINGS BUTTER

Domino has a 'pet' peeve, and she's here to tell you all about it.

"Dis is a story of woe, but it hassa happeh 'ending'."


 "Yoo see efurry year at dis time, appulls fall from da tree."


"An' it reely drives me bonkahs!"
(That's because they go 'bonk' on her head.)


"It makes me go appullplexic!"
(Translation:  Apple-related apoplexy)

"So I tot if you kin make lemonade outta lemons ...

... why not make appull 'butt-ah' outta appulls?"

THE END

DYLAN & DANTE: LOVE BITES!

As you know, Dylan and Dante were very close.  Here's two more pictures which illustrate just how close!

 Once more Dylan and Dante are a picture of brotherly love.


"I cudda dun wifout da love bite!" remarks Dylan.


But even after that they were still 'best butties'!

DOMINO: HATTY CATTY IN MID-SEPTEMBER

Domino likes her apparel to be in keeping with the changing seasons.  Here she has chosen something that is appropriate for the end of summer/beginning of fall.


Her light woven gold and black hat is adorned with both a flower and some artfully curled ribbon.  It goes very nicely with her tuxy complexion (i.e., fur coat).  Around her neck she is wearing a golden butterfly pendant on silver chain, and on one wrist is a deliCAT silver filigree bracelet studded with golden citrines.

On her other paw, Domino is carrying a gold and black floral-patterned mini-bag.  It has just enough room inside it so she can carry all of her essentials.



Domino clearly has an affinity to butterflies, because as she says "Jus' like me, buttahflies is free!"
