The luggage will be similar to the attached, and I am hoping to incorporate the logo as sewn on rubber "cut-outs" as shown in these examples.
Therefore, I'm looking for a minimalist logo with simple, clean lines that denotes both dogs and travel. PLEASE SEE MY PINTEREST BOARD, it is a far, far better demonstration of what I'm looking for than the 99Designs examples I've chosen. I love the "Dog + Pin" examples, but I'm also very open to considering logos based on a compass rose, a globe, or some other "travel-themed" item if you have a good idea. Please include both an icon and the name The Rover in your designs.

Also, if you decide to incorporate a specific dog breed into the logo (but no need to) instead of a general dog face, I want to mention here that I am very, very partial to Boston Terriers as I own one. ;-) Pictures of my Boston are attached for reference.
Please don't hesitate to write to me if you have any questions or suggestions before you create your submissions, I'm more than happy to assist (I do design production management for a living so I am very adept at communicating with artists). I'm very excited to see all of your designs and I wish you the best of luck!!
