In this story, Dylan and Dante first come face to face in broad daylight.
Dante was just relaxing on the deck bench, when ...
... Dylan jumped up to join him.
Dante was a bit taken aback, but he loves his brother, so ...
... they peacefully PURRused the yard together.
That is, until Dante began to feel those old familiar stirrings.
Enjoying the sun, Dylan is completely unaware that Dante's dark side is emerging from the depths within.
(Biggify this picture to see Dante's evil look!)
Danger, Dylan -- Danger!
Dylan is alerted just as Dante begins his descent.
Dylan better move quick before the worst happens. Dante has a rePEWtation as an incorrigible butt-sniffer.
So, Dylan moves to the opposite bench, where Dante soon follows. I'm sure sniffing the bench isn't anywhere near satisfying when you've got butt on your brain.
Dante pretends to ignore his quarry, but Dylan isn't buying it, as he waits on tenterhooks.
Then a large bird, squawking fiercely, captures their attention.
Peace returns, and Dylan lets down his guard.
Little does he know that the dark side of Dante is about to erupt once more. And this time, it is volcanic in its intensity!
We don't dare show you what happened in the interlude, butt ...
... this is the result!
And Dylan will never be the same again.
Quite the dark tale on a sunshiny day, n'est-ce-PAW?
