Something like that. Maybe with bubbly letters that say "The Dog Forum". Logo designs can include or exclude the actual domain name (http://www.thedogforum.com) but must include The Dog Forum. If designer wants to submit variations that include both, that is fine.
Please design logo in a format that can be scaled while retaining quality. We will be using this logo on both our website (http://www.thedogforum.com) and our blog -- and possibly another website. Each website will have different sizing requirements, which is why it's important we can scale the image without distorting it.
Please also design logo in a format that can make non-utilized space transparent (parts of the logo where nothing is there). The logo may be going up against different color backgrounds.
