Quick poll - literally, left or right?

Right.. makes more sense to me.. also, the dog will look at content if used on a website :)
Right. It goes along with the reading flow of the name too.
Right, but I would slightly nudge the dog a few pixels to the left, for some optical balance, it seems a bit heavier where the head is 'going on'
Nine times out of ten, if not 99 times out of 100, I would say right, as we read left to right. But, for some reason that I am still trying to put my finger on, the one on the left seems to work better in this case. It just seems to fit better.
Cheers folks - conceptually the right makes sense in that the head faces forwards (as @Ion points out) but for some reason I keep thinking the left facing one has something to it - difficult to figure why though - as @Studio Simon mentions.
@Stelian Vasile - thanks - I had manually nudged it to the right to keep the back legs off the tittle on the i, but as you point out, it feels a little heavy to the one side.
Yeah I agree with Left. I think because we read left to right, it makes sense for us to see the dogs face first and not its butt.
@Jonathan Shariat That might be it! It's kinda weird the first thing your eye's drawn to is a dogs arse!
I'm with the right as well. I get the dog's butt comment, but since we are reading left to right, your eye finishes on the head instead of at the butt and tail. Also, since the top of the "Wi" sits on the center and cap height (adding some extra weight to this side of the logo), having the heavier weighted portion of the dog towards the top right area of the logo, for me, creates a better visual balance. Hope this helps.
Thanks @Kevin - I'll have a play around with some different layouts and sizes to see what feels best - think "right" is going to be the way to go.
@Jonathan Shariat Your eyes will scan the dog's shape instantly.. it wouldn't mind in this case the positiln itself of the dog. Some other arguments mentioned here are more important ( the overall balance the right aligning gives to the logo, for ex. )
Right, way more balanced
