Hate the dotted line, but the rest is good.

Ah! Good. I do like the atypical font, it goes very well with the illustration, which I also like because it is unlike most anthropomorphic critters you see in logos all the time, and is simply a well done caricature drawn nicely.

From the East German Judge:

It's difficult to figure out what the dog is at first. On small logos like shirt breasts and possibly the hat (esp with embroidery) all you're going to have is an undecipherable orange half moon. I'd suggest exaggerating some of the details like the front legs and the ears to make the dog more identifiable.

I like the name a lot. Not crazy about the dog though. But probably easier on the eyes than a really fat guy. Any particular reason you chose the dog?

Still really like the dog. It reminds me of that cartoon where the dog is eating scraps under the table going back and forth until it's eaten so much the legs no longer reach the ground so it can't get to the food.

I'm not a professional illustrator any more but I do have an MFA, which means I have license to bullchit. SDP makes a good point though. On some applications, the dog's outline might benefit from being a little more bold, but for me, that might detract from it's appeal. It has whimsy.

The wiener dog is awesome! Then again I am partial to them! I agree with making the dog more identifiable though.

Maybe not brutal, but in all honesty I couldn't even tell that it was a dog. But then, that may just be me.

What really matters though is what you think.

Guess I might be in the minority on instantly recognizing the doggie.
