Last week, the lovely and talented Kid Lit Reviews won my second Win a Doodle Contest. So she gets a doodle on the subject of her choice.
Kid Lit, who, it turns out, is a devoted animal rights activist, gave me her request:
How about a Great Dane standing guard over a few dogs that are behind him? The Dane is the rescuer and has rescued these other dogs from the mean streets and bad homes and now refuses to let anyone else harm them.
Okee doke, Kid Lit; your wish is my command.

Congrats Sue! The doodle is very cute.
T’anks. I really enjoyed noodling around with Sue’s idea.
holy cow Mike! You really barked out an excellent drawing. (see how i determined it did not qualify as doodle due to its awesomeness?)
“Barked out.” I’m gonna have to put that in a story someday.
Love it…Kit Lit is a lucky dog! 🙂
I was lucky that Kid Lit asked me to do a drawing that was so fun.
That is amazing!
Glad you liked it, you fellow doodler, you!
Thank you, Silly!
If that dog looked any more fearsome, I’d be crying. Wonderful doodle. Congrats to Kid Lit for the win and to you too, Mike, for that wonderful capture..
Thanks, Tess. I had fun with this one.
Fun is what life is about. 🙂
That is awesome!
YAY Ms. Morris! 😀 No Sharpie, Mr. Allegra? 😉 Great doodle! 😀
It’s hard to draw with a shar pei. Those dogs very quickly run out of ink.
Ha! Great pun. I understand. 😉
OK, Mike, you can argue, deny, kick, scream, protest all you like—-you are one helluva talented artist! I LOVE this! 😀 😀 😀
Thank you, Donna! So when is your doodle contest again?
Oh…. 😛 😉 The blogs aren’t even launched. Not even TOUCHed all this time. Lots of work on submissions (and interruptions, per usual). They must come first 😀
Well played, Mike — expressions are everything, and you nailed ’em!
Praise from Mr. Miyagi! This little grasshopper is grateful.
I wouldn’t mess with that Dane! Fabuloso!
Thanks, my friend. I was afraid Sue was gonna make me put a cat in there!
The “doodle” as you incorrectly call it, is a wonderful drawing. I cannot await to get it framed – unless that is included? No? Ah gee, I didn’t think so, but I am thrilled to have won. This art, yes I said art, will hang on the wall of my new writing room. Until then, it will hang on the wall of my old writing room. If you draw another, say I win again, I’ll find a writing room with two walls.
Thanks Mike. The Dane is great! My cats ran and hid when I showed them your work. What a bonus, a way to get them out of the room. Well, done!
Sue, you made me laugh, you lucky “dog” you! 😉 And as far as your writing room walls? I’m hoping you have at least 3, preferably 4 or more 😉
“Or more?!” What kind of a room do you envision?
Oh, grand, my dear! GRAND! A hexagonal shape—why not?!
Ah! The comment I’ve been waiting for! I’m so glad you like it, Sue. And I’m delighted that this doodle will hold a place of honor in your writing room. Here’s hoping it will soon be crowded out by dozens of framed book contracts.

Check it Out!!
Cool idea, and an awesome execution! Cupcake the Rescue Dog would be 2 thumbs up…. If she had thumbs! Congratulations, Sue!
Cupcake could show 2 legs up, but that might be awkward.
I would settle for a puppy high five. (or is it high four?)
I think it’s high sixteen, actually.
What a fierce defender of the little guys. Well done, Mike! xoM
Why so glum, kid?
Oh, dear. Here. Have a cookie.
I’m beginning to think you’re a bad sport.
The middle puppy is so adorable! I’d adopt all of them on the spot, but especially him. 🙂
Glad you like it, my friend.
And, as an FYI, this won’t be the last of the doodle contests. Someday a duck in a fedora will show himself. I just know it!
Color me jealous. But wow is that a terrific drawing!! Congrats again to the winner and congrats to YOU!
Wow, that’s a fabulous drawing Mike! I love the expressions on the faces, and the sheer size of the Dane is impressive. There’s something very regal and powerful about him. Great job…now about that next contest, you know, the one where I win one of your doodles…
If you want a better chance of winning the next contest you might wanna consider bribing the judge. I hear he likes LEGO.
Great sketch and great thoughts behind it. Thanks for a real day-brightener!
That makes me smile. Thanks, Liesa!
Well done! That doggy body language is totally believable.
