Part I: A Kennel Club’s Logo

As logos go, not all registries or kennel clubs include the image of a dog. The American Kennel Club sticks to an acronym of its name, as does the Fédération Cynologique Internationale which puts the lettering over a globe:

Some clubs incorporate a breed associated with their country. The Norwegian Kennel Club incorporates a Grey Norwegian Elkhound, the flagship of native Norwegian dog breeds:

We haven’t been able to learn just what the critter is on the logo of the Irish Kennel Club. Given the antiquity of the country, it could be a mythological creature, or a stylized Wolfhound. If anyone knows with certainty, holler at us and we’ll make the edit!

The Finnish Kennel Club also features what we’re guessing is a Finnish Spit:

The dogs on the UK’s Kennel Club logo are more generic:

The Canadian Kennel Club opted for an entirely different species. Beaver, we think?

Things are entirely straightforward with the Belgian Kennel Club, also known as the Royal Club of St. Hubert. The patron saint of hunting is St. Hubert which is also the French name for Bloodhound – Chien de Saint-Hubert. Naturally, the club logo puts a Bloodhound front and center on its logo which you see at the top.
