Now that the ground is in decent condition, Dante will demonstrate for you for the first time this year, how to properly fertilize a garden. Caution, though -- this is not for the faint of heart.
First you must sniff out the best place in the garden to perform the fertilization ritual. Note: This is a good shot of Dante's pantaloons, which are often obscured by his uber-floofy tail.
Once you have located just the right spot, you can begin to dig.
Carefully position your butt end over the hole.
Then concentrate, and allow things to happen naturally.
The real work begins with the cover-up operation.
It is very important to cover the fertilizer well, so that other animals, like those evil squirrels won't disturb it.
You must come at it from every angle (leave no turd uninterred).
You can also do a little dance on top of it for good measure. It helps to pack down the earth.
Dante is a purrfectionist and will go to extremes to get a more-than-adequate amount of coverage.
And you must give it a final sniff test to make sure that the scent isn't detectable.
Ah! Satisfaction at last, in a job well done.
Wait for the applause. Wait for it ... Ah, there it is!
And take your bow!
(Note the size of those large front paws -- aren't they simply pawsome?)
For any of you who haven't quite seen enough, today we also have a video version of the fertilization process. Just click on "Dante Does His Doody" to see the show in action.
