You can tell by the way we're panting with our tongues out that the dog days of summer are here. This isn't about Romans fearing the dog star Sirius, though. We want to see your best dog-centric designs! Show us your favorite aspects of man's best friend: undying loyalty, bravery, playfulness, hatred of squirrels, or just the beautiful lack of judgment for the noises and smells you make in your home. Now for the rules:

  • No hot dogs.
  • No text.
  • Your design must be dog-centric. Sure, you can have other stuff, but at least one dog better be the star of the show.

Wow. This theme might actually inspire me. Hmmmm. My dog has WAY too much attitude - should make for good fodder for ideas.

YEAH - my wife will want all three! I'll throw this out - we have a three-legged dog and wouldn't mind to see them repped AND let's have mutts [unless you're making fun of purebreds ].

Ah now this will interesting. I need to draw more dogs. YAY dogs. It's too bad my other dog designs are out at other sites right at the moment.

Perfect! My bloodhound makes for great source material, & my basset hound/vizsla mix is pretty much the platypus of the dog world.

Do corn dogs count as hot dogs?

I'm already sensing another 3-for-3 weekend ...

I linked this in Collin's submission for #212, but it's a story of canine companionship that didn't end, even though the owner's did. Keep some tissue handy.

Definitely not a dog person. Woot must know I'm hurting for funds lately ... thanks for saving me some $ again next weekend!

OK, first idea to mind (don't shoot me for the pop culture riff): Men playing poker. Four cartoon dudes (the more burly-stereotypical the better) playing poker, and the 'chips' are little boutique dogs. You know: a teacup chihuahua, a yorkie with a bow, a pug, etc.
Thoughts? Sucks? Doesn't suck?
If the latter, anyone free to work with me on it?

Just an idea, a rough draft, of something I was playing around with some time ago.
Not sure if it will fly though for the theme and other reasons; ideas, suggestions?

Its tentatively, simply, called "chasing cars"

Coolio. I have a dog design I've been wanting to draw for ages. Looks like today's the day. :^)

Two ideas:

1. Dog playing online poker

One of the dogs from the famous painting is reclining back in a chair, playing online poker and smoking a cigar.

2. Do you like my hat?

A realistic rendition of the final scene from Go Dog Go, in which the poodle is wearing a crazy hat and the other male dog finally likes it.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Does it have to be humorous? Can you do a plea to support animal shelters and rescues?

Probably going to do a "Dog the Bounty Hunter" with a dog dressed in a Boba Fett suit with a tennis ball lasso instead of his normal lasso. I'll try and post a sketch later.

Wondering if I should have a dog frozen in carbonite behind him??

Well, think I'll stop drawing that idea now.

You run with it. Everyone would vote for yours anyway. I'll just go take a nap or something. :D

Wow, I also had this same exact idea (minus the lasso bit). Glad I decided to go another route then, even though I'm sure you'll get masses of votes.

Just dogs please. You can theoretically feature the others in some way, but as the rules state, dogs should be the focus.

Well being that those are usually rabbit or squirrel bodied I would say that would be a no.

Edit: Oops I miss read that I thought it said Wolpertingers... But still its not really a dog...
