There is a rather circular nature to the 3-D hierarchy. Domino rules the roost, Dante is second in command, and Dylan takes the bottom position. Domino and Dante get along quite nicely, and their every interaction is peaceful and harmonious.
Dante and Dylan also get along very well, though they have those mancat "rassling" sessions every now and then. Dante will keep Dylan in line if he goes too far, though. He will raise his mighty paw and Dylan will back off.
Domino and Dylan are another story. Although Domino is able to strike fear into Dylan and force him to back off, Dylan's basic instincts often get the better of him. Domino and Dylan interactions often end in hiss-terical controversy. So, at times Domino will just take the path of least resistance, and avoid Dylan altogether.
So the 3-Ds are actually best taken either singly or by the twos, with the exception of the Domino-Dylan pairing which normally ends in some sort of disruption. I guess you could call it "The Domino Effect", if you will.
Peaceful co-existence is the order of the day, as we start off with the Domino/Dante twosome.
Here is Dante hovering directly behind Domino and she is not in the least disturbed. Now if that was Dylan, it would be a whole different matter, because Dylan would likely attempt to jump her. Dante knows his place when it comes to being second-in-line behind Domino.
Domino and Dante follow the credo ...
... "Live and Let Live"
So, when Dylan comes on the scene, Dante makes cozy with him while Domino keeps her distance.
Dante bridges the gap.
And comes back to pay his respects to Domino.
Then Domino decides it's time to move on while things are still relatively peaceful.
Domino rocks and rules!
She's off to find her place on the bench to grab a little sun.
Dylan's off on a mission of his own.
He's got some serious sniffing to do, as you can clearly see.
So, Dante joins Domino on the bench as they both bask in the winter sunshine.
(There are lots of peanut shells on the bench, where the squirrels must sit and eat -- I guess they want to keep their feet warm, too!)
Domino and Dante both keep an eye on the neighbourhood.
They cooperate, as Domino looks one way, and Dante, the other.
Domino trusts Dante to be viligant while she takes time out for a little bath.
Uh-oh! Intruder alert!
Look who's back!
It's just like Dylan to barge right in! He never really looks before he leaps.
So Domino makes her escape to avoid the inevitable confrontation.
Dylan says "Nuts"! Foiled again!
