These pictures are a peek behind the veil of Domino's carefully crafted image.  Normally, she is always posed, poised and ready for a photo-op.  Here she is just relaxing on the brick walkway in front of our house, seemingly unaware of the camera taking her in.

She is still a fascinating subject, and a study in black and white tuxy perfection (if I do say so myself).

Belly floof is all just poof!

Beauty beYAWNed measure!

A ladycat of great taste!
(Biggify to see little pink tongue)

A-WRIST-o-CAT non pareil!

CATsual yet cultured!

Dis-SPHYNX-ly sphynx-like!

At ease and sPAWntaneous!

MEWsing on life!

PURRfection gets a final tweak!

So now that Domino has studied sufficiently, and you have examined her, what grade do you think she deserves?

In my opinion (of course), she's Grade A Tuxy Transcendence.

Any thoughts, Milo?

Of course she's a fabulous study in black and white! And mama squealed over the pink toes!

Definitely grad A! A++ in our books.

Our favourite photo is the fifth, where she is looking off to the side. Not quite sure why, but that one caught us the most. :-)

At words poetic, I'm so pathetic
That I always have found it best,
Instead of getting 'em off my chest,
To let 'em rest unexpressed,
I hate parading my serenading
As I'll probably miss a bar,
But if this ditty is not so pretty
At least it'll tell you
How great you are.

You're the top!
You're the Coliseum.
You're the top!
You're the Louver Museum.
You're a melody from a symphony by Strauss
You're a Bendel bonnet,
A Shakespeare's sonnet,
You're Mickey Mouse.
You're the Nile,
You're the Tower of Pisa,
You're the smile on the Mona Lisa
I'm a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop,
But if, baby, I'm the bottom you're the top!

Your words poetic are not pathetic.
On the other hand, babe, you shine,
And I can feel after every line
A thrill divine
Down my spine.
Now gifted humans like Vincent Youmans
Might think that your song is bad,
But I got a notion
I'll second the motion
And this is what I'm going to add;

You're the top!
You're Mahatma Gandhi.
You're the top!
You're Napoleon Brandy.
You're the purple light
Of a summer night in Spain,
You're the National Gallery
You're Garbo's salary,
You're cellophane.
You're sublime,
You're turkey dinner,
You're the time, the time of a Derby winner
I'm a toy balloon that’s fated soon to pop
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
You're the top!

You're the top!
You're an arrow collar
You're the top!
You're a Coolidge dollar,
You're the nimble tread
Of the feet of Fred Astaire,
You're an O'Neill drama,

You're Whistler's mama!

You're camembert.

You're a rose,
You're Inferno's Dante,

You're the nose
On the great Durante.
I'm just in a way,
As the French would say, "de trop".
But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
You're the top!

You're the top!
You're a dance in Bali.
You're the top!
You're a hot tamale.
You're an angel, you,
Simply too, too, too diveen,
You're a Boticcelli,
You're Keats,
You're Shelly!

You're Ovaltine!
You're a boom,
You're the dam at Boulder,
You're the moon,
Over Mae West's shoulder,
I'm the nominee of the G.O.P.


But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
You're the top!

You're the top!
You're a Waldorf salad.
You're the top!
You're a Berlin ballad.
You're the boats that glide
On the sleepy Zuider Zee,
You're an old Dutch master,

You're Lady Astor,
You're broccoli!
You're romance,
You're the steppes of Russia,
You're the pants, on a Roxy usher,
I'm a broken doll, a fol-de-rol, a blop,

But if, baby, I'm the bottom,
You're the top!

Smoochies for my beautiful Tuxie gerl,
love from Milo xxxxxxxxx
