Dante was just stretching, and Domino had just hopped up on the bench.
And seconds later, this is what happened!
This is Dante's usual greeting. He does the same to Dylan.
"Hi, how are you? Let's see what's going on back here!"
Domino doesn't react hissily at all to Dante, although if Dylan had done the same thing it would sound like World War III had broken out. "Butt" enough is enough. Little Miss Domino prefers to be left alone, thank you very much.
And to avoid any further "herASSment" by that big "BUTTinski", Dante, Domino just takes the path of least resistance on her way to the back door.
In any event, the relationship between Domino and Dante is quite peaceful. There seems to be a common understanding between them (unlike with certain other parties, previously mentioned herein). Dante is very respectful of Domino, and she allows him a little latitude now and then. And all is well.
