About my logos....

My logos were designed by Catherine McMillan of Minuteman Miniature Schnauzers, Deslilse, Saskatchewan.  She was a pleasure to work with and did a great job of capturing what I wanted in a logo. You can see more of Kate's art work on her website at www.katewerk.com. Look for her dog logos under the Canine Art page. And if you are looking for a logo, Kate has my vote!

About the Tarahill logo: Tarahill is my registered kennel name and looks back to family origins in Ireland.  Tara was the ancient capital of Ireland. Many of my dogs have call names that are Irish in origin as well.  The stylized Cairn on the logo is confident and ready to take on the world - the way I would like my cairns to be in the show and performance rings as well as in daily life.

About the Wags to Wishes logo: When thinking of names to call my training business, I wanted something that would reflect joy, the desire for a well trained dog and speak to the growth of a great relationship between dog and handler.  Wags to Wishes, of course, is meant to make you think of 'rags to riches'.  I wanted the logo to be open and welcoming and a little lighthearted.  The cartoon cairn in the logo is offering a play bow, as cairns and many other breeds often do when they are soliciting friendly interaction. The tail is up in a happy wave and the mouth is open a little giving the overall picture of a gregarious but confident little dog.
