Stealing the Dog

The Dog When we first put the Prince Edward Island Visitors Guide online back in 1995, I needed a an icon a dog to display alongside listings where pets were allowed. So I did my best, and came up with the proto-dog you see blown up here. It was never a very good rendition of a dog. But it has done its job for 5 years without complaining.

Recently the dog has started turning up, uncredited, on other websites. Because it’s such a wonkly dog, it’s easy to tell when others have stolen it. Look here for example. Or here.

I can’t say that I’m particularly peeved by this kind of theft (although it is formally prohibited), but it would be nice if people would ask first.
