Hey Guys,

I know we have some uber creative people on this forum - and TCDR needs your help! We have a booth at the Houston Dog Show for July 16-19 at Reliant Center in Houston... Problem is - there are HUNDREDS of booths! We want to make up a banner to draw attention to us. Here is the banner...


So here's the deal... Post possible slogans here on the forum. The board will vote and choose the slogan for the banner. The winner will receive 2 TCDR koozies, a TCDR T-shirt, and a little something for your ACD!



And a mystery prize for your pup!!

"Inside Every Rescued Cattle Dog Is a Heart as Big as Texas!"

"No More Lonely Cattle Dogs in the Lone Star State"

"Texans never give up, and neither do Cattle Dogs!"

"Remember the AuCaDo!!!"


06-26-2009, 04:27 PM
Whoo Hoo!! RTR starts it off with a bang!! I love it! Keep 'em coming gang!

06-26-2009, 04:33 PM
hee hee...i LOVE coming up with slogans & jingles...

when i ran my own pet-sitting & in home training services, my business name was "Smiling Dog Services" and the slogan was "Why board them alone when they could be home?"

i especially like the last one, kinda like "Remember the Alamo"!


c'mon, lets see some creativity...i havn't had a chance to be creative since December...and that's not good for the psychological wellbeing of any artist!

Our favorite saying is a play from the tv show Heroes. We came up with it when we rescued Claire (happens to be the name of the cheerleader from the show)

"Save the Cattle Dog, Save the World"

Big State
Big Hearts
Big Love

"Red or Blue, there's one for you!"


06-26-2009, 05:03 PM
"Kiss Our Bentleys!" :biggrin2:

(OK, not too creative, cuz we've used it before, but I like it.)

06-26-2009, 05:53 PM
"Hold 'Em in Texas" (Like Texas Hold 'Em)

"Large or small, the ACD herds 'em all!"

06-26-2009, 05:57 PM
OK, this one is kinda cheesy because you have to sing it to "Deep in the Heart of Texas":

Bentleys at night are big and bright (clap-clap-clap-clap), deep in the heart of Texas!

06-26-2009, 07:24 PM
"Red or Blue, there's one for you!"


I like this one!

06-26-2009, 08:41 PM
Wow, I'm loving reading these, some are really great. I can't wait to be able to buy my very own TCDR tee-shirt with the new slogan on it!

I like Mel's Big State, Big Hearts, Big Love.

I also like: Red or Blue there's one for you (because it's also kinda a takeoff on the red states and blue states

And these two I really love:
"Inside Every Rescued Cattle Dog Is a Heart as Big as Texas!"
"No More Lonely Cattle Dogs in the Lone Star State"

Already so many excellent choices!

06-26-2009, 09:23 PM

06-27-2009, 12:32 PM

I'd like to suggest you look at Windrovers signature! It just love it, but she'd have to say it was ok.

06-28-2009, 10:21 AM
"All my miX'es live in Texas!"

Not a submittal, but just couldn't help myself, and as a reference to the mixed breeds. :naughty:

There are so many great slogans already. Jenn, I think you should use MORE THAN ONE!

06-28-2009, 10:23 AM
"Cattle Dog: It's What's for Rescue!"

(A take on the "Beef: It's What's for Dinner" slogan)

:::slinking away now from my lame attempt::: :)

06-28-2009, 05:45 PM
OK, so I don't have any slogan suggestions, but I'm wondering if you have enough volunteers to man the booth? If you need any help I'm available.

06-28-2009, 09:08 PM

07-04-2009, 08:45 AM
Woot! That is so cool!

Hey Jenn, you ARE going to post one of the flyers after they're done, right? :biggrin2:

07-04-2009, 09:19 AM
the nice thing about "kiss our bentleys" is that peopel won't know what a bentley is...or they will think it's a type of european luxury car...& it will draw them to your tent, if only to ask..."what's a bentley"?

congrats to the winners! it was a fun contest!


07-04-2009, 09:52 AM
Yes - I'll post the flyers when they are done! I'll also post pics of our booth at the Houston Dog Show so that you can see the banner! :)

07-06-2009, 01:54 PM
Jenn- please e-mail me some kind of flyer that I can print out. I need one to put in my "High scoring ACD" prize at our show on July 25th. I can also place some on the info table where folks come in the main door.:biggrin2:

07-06-2009, 02:22 PM
Shoot me your address... I'll send a koozie or two and some flyers to you when I get them next week. :)
