LOGO LINK EMAIL
The concept of the logo is my own but it took an artist to change what was in my mind's eye into reality. The logo was drawn to perfection by Graphic Designer, Chow breeder/exhibitor and my friend Wendy Reyn of W'inc. She was able to bring what I described to life in this stunning drawing that will live on long after Sophie leaves us. Thank you Wendy!
She is also the face on the cover of the 2005 Keeshond Club of America National show catalogue having won that privilege over many lovely entries. Sophie is blessed with the lovely Keeshond head described in our breed standard which is set off by the correct eye shape and colour, markings and expression.
The Owenbriar Logo
               
is taken from the beautiful side profile of Owenbriar's Solitary Rose, Sophie
The idea for the logo and the origin of my kennel name is a combination of the two great passions of my life (aside from my family) which are Keeshonden and roses. The "Owen" part is from my surname of course. Rose growing started about 1978 and in fact right around the time I purchased my first Keeshond. Both have given me much pleasure (and some considerable frustration) ever since. With this last move to the area of Meaford we are starting over again with another kennel renovation and another rose garden and it will be a while before either are completed. It's a pleasure so I really don't mind.
