I'm really not quite sure what to make of #1 entry. It's a bit goth, creative, but definately not the image I am looking for at all. Not sure what it has to do with dog walking/pet sitting. Thanks for your entry, try again and maybe try to get more in the mode of the subject.

Entrys #2, #3,#4. I honestly don't have any idea what these images are or what they represent and totally don't get the design at all. Am I missing something? I'm looking for something fun, and creative, which this definately is creative, but I want people to look at my logo and know exactly what I do. Please try again, maybe take another look at what I am looking for. Thank you for you entry.

#7 I really like this. I say not just paws but you could put may one or so in there. Also maybe try to add some humor to the logo. I like it, not sure that I'm crazy about the blue color. Maybe a darker blue. Thank you.

#5 & #6 I like the characters, especially the cat, don't like the green or the square sign it is too symetrical. Maybe try something different with the way you present my business name. Thank you

To all thank you for your work, this is great fun. I have friends and family watching this play out and helping me with my decision, thanks to them all for their interest.
Maybe you could try putting each word inside a paw and in the shape of a paw. Or maybe a cat running and dragging a dog at the end of a leash. I think it would be fun to have some humor. I want people to smile when they look at my card. I look forward to seeing more.

I'm wondering if the fact that I said I didn't want alot of paws in my logo has stopped some designers from making an entry. I really thought this would be a fun, rather easy logo to create. So many people love animals and it is easy to make a characicature of animals, not for me of course with no design capabilities. That's why I'm looking to you all. So please don't be afraid to try something different. And maybe try putting a person in there too in the walking.

#9 I really like your design. I'm wondering if you could try to make it a bit more like a drawing. You have really captured it all and it is quite creative. But I would love to see more humor, less symetrical animals.

#11 I really like your design too, altho I think the dog may look a bit too wolflike. I think the slogan is too hard to read. I'm wondering how it will transfer to a business card, it may not be readable. Could you make it a little bigger or brighter. I do like the colors in this logo.....how will they transfer to a business card?

#12 I don't think it's obvious what my company is by your logo. I appreciate what you are trying to do with the paw but I don't think the logo says dog walking or pet sitting. Maybe expand on what you've got.

#14 Wow that's great I like it alot. It's fun and catches your eye. I think the slogan is too small to read. Can you make it a little more readable. If It is too difficult to keep the slogan in the logo other than very small than I will just add it separately on my business cards and other marketing material.

I would like to extend the contest 5 more days. Having been gone for 2 days I feel I am a little out of the loop. Please don't take this to mean I don't appreciate what's been done so far. I just feel I need a few more days to allow for some changes and any additional entries that filter in. I am now updating the ranking and adding more comments. They are on the way in a short time.

#22 and your others similar, thank you for the changes. They look better. Maybe we could add a person chasing after them and use a different font the logo. Not sure which colors I like better.
#23 I don't think this one respresents what I do.

#20 The changes look better. Could you do something different with the colors. There is too much yellow, not enough contrast. It makes it hard to distinguish the dog & cat. I think change the color of the banner so the logo stands out as well.

#27 I like your concept but I think maybe it suggests more of a pet store kind of look. I also think it may be too spread out and would take up too much room on a business card. Could you try something a little different.

#21 Not really what I had in mind. It's hard to tell what the symbols represent and it doesn't really suggest dogwalking or pet sitting.

#17 I like the way the slogan looks better but I think I like the animals better in #14. I think I would like some paws in this design and may a paw for the W.

Great job all.....hope I didn't miss any of the designs.

OK, let's try this too.. Let's see what you've got with paws! I'm hoping I didn't limit everyone by saying limit the paws. Try some with paws..

Thank you catalyst for the changes. They are great. I've ranked two different ones and put the rest toward the bottom as I am trying to rank concepts and not just variations. I've rank everyones designs that way to give everyone a chance to get a rating.

Betterfly I like the changes you made too. It is much more contrast. I do think I prefer the design with the slogan in it.

BlueChomp I like your changes as well.

#9 Could you take out the circle, maybe add a person.

This is tough Everyone has done such a great job, I really appreciate all your hard work. I understand that the drawing takes much more time. When I started I thought my logo would be easy but I see now that it is not. I guess at the end when I pick a winner we can make the final changes, adding or removing things. Yikes it's going to be a hard decision, they are all good! How do you do it?

Thank you.

Thank you everyone for the new entrys. Just a quick note. I like the new entries by bayudesigns. My only comment is they look more like clip art and I prefer the original drawing types. Laughing Dolphin I don't think your dog and cat match. Alexis please see the personal comment I left you. This is going to be a difficult pick. I haven't finished ranking all the designs I have received and will do that later. Today is going to be a very busy day, I will get back to this soon. Thanks again for all your hard work.
