Portuguese Podengo Pequenos of America -- http://www.pppamerica.org
Hi, my name is Marilyn, and I'm the show chairperson for the 2010 Portuguese Podengo Pequenos of America Specialty Show. I've been showing dogs of various breeds for over 20 years. Podengo Pequenos are a rare breed in this country right now, but they are destined to become more popular once we are officially recognized by the American Kennel Club. You can see more of me and my Podengo Pequeno here: http://podlover.wordpress.com/
People who go to these shows are at least as crazy about their dogs as I am. Our club was recently selected by the American Kennel Club to be the National Club for this breed. This is definitely something to celebrate at our very first show.
Our show is going to be very near York, PA, the home of Harley Davidson. One of the old Harley Davidson slogans was "The Road Starts Here, It Never Ends." Since this will be the very first PPPA Specialty, we want to use "The Road Starts Here" as the theme for our show.
I'm looking for a design that can go on either the front or back (I haven't decided which yet) of a T-shirt. The design must incorporate the Show name, date, and slogan:
PPPA National Specialty

The Road Starts Here
It must also include a representative podengo pequeno (in outline or silhouette is ok) OR our club logo.
Since our theme is "The Road Starts Here" we're looking for something that conveys the start of a trip or journey. Ideas we like are a road with a podengo on a road sign, a dog on a motorcycle, or a road viewed through motorcycle handlebars. I've uploaded some clipart (copyrighted) that is along the lines of what we're thinking about, but this is where you are welcome to use your creativity!
We will be across the street from the Harley Davidson museum, so any vehicle representation should be motorcycle, not car. The show is in central PA, in the Spring, so the landscape should be appropriate (not Southwest, Mountains, snowy, etc). We'll also be close to Hershey, PA, which may (or may not) be useful.
Nothing too elegant, and no photos.
