DANTE AND DYLAN TAKE THEIR TURN

As it 'turns' out, both Dante and Dylan liked to take their turn in the snow.  In these pictures, they are each making a hard right!



It's like each of them is frozen in time with one paw raised in PURRpetuity.

Like someone pressed the PAWS button!

DYLAN IS HATUS MANUS CATUS: GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER!

Dylan's on his way to the pet shop to pick up something for dinner.  He's having guests today.  Can you guess WHO?

Here's a hint:  Dylan only deigns to invite those on the "Who's Who" list for Canada.  It saves on getting your 'woods-be' guests pre-screened, and it's much more polite!

(An Aside:  What Dylan couldn't know was that these two birds of a feather were scam artists who had hacked the "Who's Who" list.  Indeed, they're known for their fowl deeds!)


For this expedition to the shopping mall, Dylan is wearing a dark blue faux fur Sherlock Holmes-style hat which nicely covers his ears (even with the ear flaps up).  He has a beautiful dark blue wool scarf decorated with snowflakes and reindeer around his neck, and plain dark blue mittens on his front paws.  He got some new boots for Christmas and is breaking them in for the first time.  They are dark gray suede Timberland boots -- just purrfect for hiking.

When Dylan asked his guests what they might like for dinner, they both replied:  "Something of the rodent variety".  So he bought a particularly large one (good for carving) and brought it home in a bag which he left on the kitchen island.


"O rats -- I'm outta here!" exclaimed the rodent, making his escape along with part of the cheese course.

When Dylan discovered that the main course had mysteriously disappeared (he couldn't help but wonder "Who dunnit?"), he had no choice but to open up a can of worms.




 And the moral of this story is ...


... if you worm your way into dinner, you just might have to eat them!

DOMINO: HATTY CATTY SNOW BOUND!

Domino's been out shopping again and was dressed up accordingly.  It looks like she's getting home just in time because it's starting to snow.

Domino is wearing a dark green wool cloche hat with bronze-coloured satin band and feather ornament at the back.  Around her neck is an avant-garde green and ivory leopard-print scarf with matching mitts on her front paws.  The scarf is fastened with a sweet lily-of-the-valley pin:


She is keeping her back toes dry and cozy in ivory woollen Ugg boots.  And, as always, Domino has selected the purrfect purrse to accompany the outfit; this one in green alligator leather.

One might think that Domino is anxious to get back inside the house now that it's snowing, but she actually just wanted to change into something more casual so she can play in it -- the snow, that is.


"Yoo needs ta get rite down into it, if yoo got any chance a 'wingin' it!" remarks she.

DOMINO: SNOW PRINTS-ESS!

Here's a lovely winter image of Domino leaving her footprints in the snow.


She always likes to leave her purrsonal imprint on things no matter where she goes.



 Even if she has to use her butt to do it!

DYLAN: HATUS MANUS CATUS FISHUS

It's O-FISH-all!   Dylan's all hatted up and ready to go ice fishing.

It can get mighty bitter out there on the frozen water, so Dylan's chosen a warm woollen plaid flatcap with earwarmers, in charcoal gray and red.  He has paired this with a gray and white plaid scarf and is also wearing woolly mittens to match.

On his back feet he is wearing heavy-duty leather waterproof boots to fend off the cold, and to get a good grip on the ice.

Dylan's seal friend is extremely happy about the ice fishing, as that is one sport they have in common.



He is so happy, in fact, that he has given Dylan his ultimate ...


Yay!
