Dodge Completed

dodgedone I completed this one tonight. This is my sister’s dog, Dodge.  He’s a big black Great Dane, and was still a puppy in this picture.  Dodge is a giant sweety pie, who has had an interesting life thus far.  He was found abandoned as a small(ish) puppy by the police after someone left him behind after being evicted.  My sister was told there was an 8 week old puppy that needed a home, and went to get him, thinking he would be a tiny helpless baby.  She came home with a lanky puppy that was the size of many full grown dogs already. He ended up being a great dog, who loved kids and was a sweet as could be.

While we were getting ready to go on a camping trip one day, Dodge trotted into the street and was hit by a truck.  His paw looked so bad, I was convinced he would have to have his leg amputated.  My sister cared for him and changed the dressing on his wound daily until he miraculously recovered, able to run and play within a month of the accident.  He’s definitely a survivor, and has made me appreciate this large lovable breed of dog.
