though it's a nicely illustrated mark, it seems too phallic..**You don't want it ending up on something like this http://www.jonhs.net/naughtylogos/

The phallic symbol is very apparent. It's not the kind of subliminal message any company wants to send.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I didn't see anything phallic about it when I was designing it. But I thank you for being honest.

Not that it has anything to do with you, Double A, but I wonder if there are any legal implications with using that name?**Also, hidden phalli aren't necessarily a bad thing - advertisers have been hiding wangs in things for decades - sex sells %3B)

BTW: Past the implied imagery, I wanted to mention I do like the logo. It's clean and has a lot of character. Keep up the good work!

Nice one. I totally get why others are seeing this a phallic, but honestly, it's clearly evident that it's a chef hat and a dog bone, and that absolutely no reference to a phallic imagery is implied. So if you're seeing a dong, well, go take a cold shower %3B)

While I think this logo is an exception because of the bone/hat shape's interactivity, it's true that we as designers are trained to see any hint of phallic symbols. Not because we're perverts but because if we can see it, then somebody else will. And once you see it, you will always relate it, unfortunately. You need to eliminate any ulterior interpretations from your work to help it's success. Not doing this is just plain lazy. But to restate my first point...this mark is really clever and I think should be ok. You have a great body of work.
