DANTE: A THREE-WAY!

This is Dante in the back yard in February 2010, sitting on the snow-covered deck, taken from three different angles.

Handsome pictures, all.

In fact you might say ...


... they're a 'hat trick'!

DANTE: SPEAKING OF MOUNTAINS ...

It's was February of 2013 and we had a ton of snow.  So much that Dante couldn't even see over it when he was standing on tiptoe!

 All he could see was a 'see' of white.

"Hey Mama, kin yoo give me a BOOST?" he asked.

"No" said I "but I'll give you some BOOTS."

"Get a grip on yourself!" I said.

DANTE: MAKING A MOLEHILL OUT OF A MOUNTAIN

This is Dante in the backyard in the winter of 2013.  There was lots and lots of snow.  Indeed, there appeared to be a 'mountain' of it!

With his tail as a marker for his position under all this snow, Dante was busily digging at the base of the mountain.


After some time he made an appearance on the other side and heaved a big sigh.

"I herd dey make mountains outta molehills, so I wuz lookin' fur moles" said he.


And after all that he actually scared one up, rousing it from a peaceful sleep.

"Holy moley!" was the only thing it was heard to say.

DANTE: KEEPING AN EYE ON YOU AND ME

This is Dante in the winter of 2014.

He is on the front porch beside his favourite wicker chair, looking back at me (I'd like to think, with love).

Some of the best pictures I have of Dante show only one eye.  He always seemed to be peeking around one thing or another.

Much more mysterious, don't you think?

DANTE ON BEING FLAKY!

Here in February 2011, Dante appears to be fascinated by the falling snow.


He'd like to capture one if he could.  Now if he only had something to put it in ...


... Mmmmm -- refreshing!
