:: 3 paw taps ::
Dante is out in the jungle we call our back yard. Even though it's only the end of July, there have already been some changes that one would normally associate with autumn.
"Yes", says Dante. "Da cwabappull twee has cwabappulls now, an' sum of da leefs is turnin' yellow!!!"
"Jus' look at all da yellow leefs on da gwound alreddy, too!", exclaims Dante.
"I finks I bettah doo sum furtilizin' before itz too late!"
And as the camera hones in on Dante doing his thing, it's impossible not to notice yet another unseasonal change. Dante's getting his winter coat already!!! Just look at how his mane and underbelly furs have thickened!!!
And look at that tail all poofed out!
It's still only July and there's lots more hot weather to come. Why has Mother Nature made his fur coat swell to such proportions so early?
Is Dante foretelling a harsh and early winter??? I sure hope not.
"Da pwoof is in da floof!", declares Dante. "Oh, an' wun last fing ...."
"Duz yoo wemembah da willow bush dat taked Daddy ovah a monf ta twim, an' we fawt it wuz deaded?"
"Jus' look at it now!"
Like Dante's fur, the willow bush has gone wild. Who would have thunk it?
