This is a sneak peek at Domino in her Valentine's Day outfit.  The pictures were taken after the actual photoshoot, but I continued to snap away as she relentlessly attempted to open the door.

Afterwards, upon viewing the results, I figured it could be presented as a pictorial on "How to Pick A Door", by Domino.  My adoorable little 'picadoor' tried every move pawsible to get that thing open, but the door stood fast against her repeated jabs.  In the end, though, Domino uses other, more effective, methods of PURRsuasion, as you will see. 

Here is Domino in her special Valentine's Day dress.  Isn't it sweet?
She's going to wear it for Milo when the special day comes.  But, right now, she's had enough and just wants to go inside.

Not one to wait on ceremony, Domino takes matters into her own paws.

"PURRhaps if I puts PURRessure on this spot, it'll pop open", she says.

When that didn't happen, she applied even more pressure.  Surely two paws and a muzzle would do it!

"Maybe just a gentle tap is bettah!"

When that doesn't work, she changes tactics and tries out her telekinetic abilities.
"I fink I can, I fink I can ..."

Domino stops to collect her thoughts before ...

... trying the strongarm aPURRoach!

"Maybe if I frows mai whole weight against it, it'll budge a bit", she says, ever-hopeful. 

"Well, I has PAWSited efurryfing PAWsible.  Now dere's only wun fing left to try ..."


"Mew, mew, mew!"

So in the end, cuteness is mightier than any kind of physical PURRowess.  It was the key to mama's heart (and ultimately, the door, of course).

Tune in next week, on the 14th, for Domino's Valentine's Day photoshoot.

Domino, that was a little bit mean of your human to keep photographing you when you wanted to go back in so badly!
