DANTE'S LION AROUND ON THE GREEN, GREEN GRASS OF HOME!

Dante just adores this time of year, once the grass has started to grow.  He loves to nibble the longer blades and snuggle down into the shorter ones.

 "I doan like it wen dey cuts it too short, doe", opines he.  "It kin get kinda scratchy,"


 "An' dey really shud git ridda summa dese weeds!"


"But at leest my pawrents are environmentally (an' mentally) furiendly.  Dey doan use pestisides cuz dat kin kill moar dan jus' da weeds.  It isn't good fur pussycats eithah.  So mebbe da weeds isn't so bad aftah all.  At leest we is safe in our own back yard!"



So saith Dante, the Lion King of Orleans.

DANTE: SPRING SCRATCH & SNIFF

Normally, Dante likes to make sure that efurry aspect of his domain is up to scratch.  However, come Spring he also needs to confirm his dominance using another of his senses.

"I needs ta noe ...




... dat absolootly ...




... efurryfing around heer ...



... is up ta SNIFF!"

(I actually think Dante meant to say 'up to snuff'', but we'll leave well enough alone, shall we?)

DANTE: OVER-THE-SHOULDER SMOULDER

Here is a beautiful and unique portrait of Dante, as he takes a look back over his shoulder.

With the sun shining upon him, there are so many different shades and hues in his richly-coloured fur.  He almost appears to be on fire.


 Talk about smouldering!!!

DANTE TAKES A PAWS FROM THE ACTION!

Dante is the Lion King and he has very big paws with which to rule his kingdom.

Witness ...




Dante doesn't worry about playing any 'Game of Thrones' because ...


"As long as I has my crown an' my scepter an' my paws an' my claws no one kin take away my throne!  I'd beat 'em senseless." declares he.

DANTE: JUST PEACHY KEEN!

 Dante's out enjoying the Spring weather on our neighbour's front walk.


And here he's been 'stroked' to purrfection in pale peach, with a paintbrush.



Watercolours always put him in 'stitches'!
