The Sports Logo Story Behind The Beverly Hills Fighting Chiweenies

Here at Awesome Sports Logos, we are huge dog lovers. In fact, here is our mascot that we found wandering the street at midnight. Now he rules the offices of Awesome Sports Logos with unlimited bones and love.

 

We have another dog in the office but this one is in the form of an awesome t-shirt. We introduce you to the Beverly Hills Fighting Chiweenies.

 

So what exactly is a Chiweenie? Here is the official definition from pawculture.com

 A cross between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund, the Chiweenie is a small breed, sometimes with long, floppy Dachshund ears. They tend to be happy, easy going dogs … although they need a lot of love and attention when they're young.

So of all the dog breeds, why did we pick the Chiweenie? Google is actually the key to this storyline. In our research for various sports logos, this Chiweenies logo jumped out to me. With a few clicks, I was able to contact the designer Erica who was a college student. One of her class projects was to take a docile creature and make it into a vicious sports logo. Erica nailed it. She deserved an A+ on this project. She also designed our New Orleans Curse awesome basketball t-shirt.

 

It was such a great feeling to see our Chiweenies logo used as an example in a local El Paso story when it was revealed that one of the five finalists for the new El Paso baseball team was the El Paso Chihuahuas. That name ended up not only winning, it’s now one of the leading minor league baseball merchandise sellers in the country. If you walk into El Paso Airport, you can’t miss seeing Chihuahuas gear.

 

So if you happen to be a dog lover and a lover of sports logos like we are, treat yourself to the Beverly Hills Fighting Chiweenies. It’s sure to become a closet favorite. Even better, add the Chiweenies and the New Orleans Curse to the list of our T-shirt of the Month Club. Sweet discounts with free shipping. You pick the t-shirts and if you are giving our T-shirt of the Month Club as a gift, we are happy to personalize the experience at no extra charge. We want this to be an awesome experience.

Thanks as always for your support. Go Chiweenies!

My Favorite Dog Sports Logos

Dogs are awesome! We all know that and they certainly aren’t just “Man’s Best Friend”. I witness that every night at bedtime. The order of space in our bed is wife, dog and whatever sliver is left to squeeze into, I take. I’m sure I’m not the only one that faces this situation. That being said, we can’t say enough about our joyful animal friends and we also can’t say enough about Dog Sports Logos. Here are a few of our favorites.

The El Paso Chihuahuas

Back in 2014, the Padres moved their AAA team from Tucson to El Paso. With that came a new stadium and a new sports logo and boy did it take off. El Paso loves their Chihuahuas. Their gear is at the airport, at shopping malls and it has quickly become the best selling minor league baseball logo. Go Chihuahuas!

 The Jackson Generals

 

 The Generals are based in Jackson Tennessee and are the AA affiliate of the Seattle Mariners in the Southern League. Now that’s a long call up trip from Jackson to Seattle. Terrific artistry by the designer on this sports logo. If you pictured a dog General, it would look like “Sarge” who is the Generals mascot. I also love the replacement of chewing on a bat instead of a bone. Go Generals!

The Batavia Muckdogs

 

Baseball has been in Batavia New York since 1961. The Muckdogs are the Single A affiliate of the Florida Marlins in the New York Penn League. So what the heck is a Muckdog? Muck is a form of soil found in this part of New York. The name Muckdog came from a fan contest back in 1998. I like this logo for several reasons. Muck regionalizes the logo’s heritage. Crafty work by this sports logo designer making the broken fence into an “M” with a tough looking pooch breaking through.

The Midland RockHounds

 

 Midland is the AA affiliate of the Oakland A’s in the Texas League. In a 2014 interview with the awesome website sportslogos.net, Rockhounds PR man Brian Smith at the time said that the name is a nickname for a Geologist. Midland Texas is serious oil country, thus the hardhat on the dog and if you look real close, you can see some Oil Derrick’s in the background.

 

The Beverly Hills Fighting Chiweenies

 

 We are biased on this one because it’s one of our logos. This was actually a school project for one of our logo designers. She was given the task of creating a ferocious sports logo out of a docile creature and she nailed it with this cross between a Chihuahua and a Dachshund. We needed to find a location and Beverly Hills just seemed like the place you would find a Chiweenie peeking outside of a purse. Dog lovers will certainly strike up some conversations by wearing this awesome t-shirt. Even better, get your Chiweenies t-shirt at a discount price by subscribing to our T-shirt of the Month Club. Free shipping and discount prices. It also makes your trip to the mailbox easier because it’s something other than a bill. Now that’s awesome.

Have a great day and be sure to support your local animal shelters to help out dogs and other animals in need.

You are awesome!

Awesome Sports Logos Has a New Mascot

Every team in sports has a mascot and now the team at Awesome Sports Logos welcomes our new mascot Oscar!

I was on my way home from a late night Dallas Stars playoff game when staring at me in the road by my house were these two eyes.

 
 
I pulled over and while he was a little skittish at first, he quickly jumped into my arms. We alerted the neighborhood pet watch, the vet and nobody claimed him. No tag and no chip unfortunately. The neighbors told us that sometimes people drop dogs off in our neighborhood. Well after a week of runs, walks and playing catch, Oscar earned his way on to the Awesome Sports Logos team. Oscar was named after the “Big O” Oscar Robertson, one of the greatest basketball players to step on a court. He has even picked out his favorite t-shirt. Oscar digs the Beverly Hills Fighting Chiweenies. Even though he’s what they call a Puggle which is a cross between a Pug and a Beagle, Oscar digs the Chiweenies, especially the female variety. Here's the Chiweenies worn by actress Amy Vorpahl.
 

 

 

Welcome to the family “Big O”. You are an awesome addition to the Awesome Sports Logos team.
