cave canem

ATTENTI AL CANE! The definition of Cave Canem is Latin for "Beware of the dog."

The history of The Delighted Dog logo comes from THIS very site in the entryway of the House of the Tragic Poet, a typical 2nd century BC Roman house in Pompeii, Italy. The house is famous for its elaborate mosaic floors and illustrative scenes from Greek mythology.

We were fortunate enough to be able to learn about the history of Pompeii visiting the city ruins and the house where our logo originated from while in Italy. This moment could not have been any more fitting nor meaningful to the company.
