Cropping dog ears for cosmetic purposes is banned in Australia, much of Europe, and all but two Canadian provinces. In America the Animal Hospital Association has opposed it since 1993, the Veterinary Association since 2008.    The AKC doesn’t penalize dogs which are not cropped. So unless you’re taking your Great Dane on a boar hunt, there’s no reason to crop their ears

I definitely can see some cross marketing with golf. The new logo reminds me of a ball mark repair tool. I can see repair tools with an embossed Damien head being handed out in the annual tourney swag bags. Maybe one of you youngsters, much better than I at photoshopping stuff, can effort an image of that. And with a little sharpening and an extension it could be a pickle fork. Beef it up and put a handle on it and it probably would make a passible bottle opener. The possibilities are endless!

I am so torn on this.  Part of me thinks it's a bit ridiculous but I'm also a dog lover and hate when I see people with cropped animals.  That being said, those ears do look bigger than Cropped ears, so maybe it's just the dog at attention (looking for that boar?)

I get it, it's cruel to crop their ears, but lets take a look at the history of why it was done: Cropping the ears was done with hunting dogs to protect them from being mutilated while hunting wild Seawolves (I mean wild boar).  The point is to make the dog look angry and mean. All the Great Danes I know have been lovable. The floppy ears make them look lovable.  

Maybe put some small print on the bottom of the logo "The University at Albany does not condone the cropping of ears. No Great Danes were harmed in the artist rendering of this logo."

I can't take this world anymore. 

 

Also, the existing Scooby/Damien has cropped ears. Was there a petition for him?

Dislike the cropped ears. That and tail docking just seem intensely cruel. Even the supposed benefits of docking a working dog's tail aren't proven

On the other hand, I do like the UA font with the cropped A. Whether intentionally or not, it kind of echoes the shape of the the Capital Region and northward

Are we going to update this site with the new logo? I like the first one (white) that Eli proposed

I’m in favor of spiking Cujo too. 

 

The old logo looked determined and modestly fierce. This thing looks aggressive and downright evil. The more I see it, the more I dislike it.
