Canine Whimsy

Dogs are people, too?  If you have a dog(s) and you can afford an amusing touch of whimsy in your home, there is a lot of variety out there.  Have a look and a smile.

Bauhaus Design ( Good Housekeeping)

Classic Country Style dog house as seen in Womens Day. Includes a/c and a front porch light!  Not sure how the dog gets in or out.

This house is a copy of the owner's home. Vaulted ceilings, circle -top window, and doggie decor inside
(bone-shaped rugs and puppy-print wallpaper!) Also, check out that dog-bone shaped "hot tub" pictured in the inset.

Now here is quite an estate, built by Alan Mowrer, who is known for creating the most fashionable dog houses in the world.  This home has running water (!),  a/c,  heat, and lighting.  Do I sound like a real estate agent?

Paris Hilton's dogs enjoy The Best of Gracious Living! This house sits on a patch of green just next to the pool area.
Tradition rules in Brittania!

And then we have the modest castle,  for the dog who eschews ( no pun intended) pretension.

Design works for me!
Have a GREAT weekend!


  1. Oh, I agree dogs are definitely people. As a matter of fact, in my experience they often (usually?) make better friends. They certainly got the loyalty bit down to a fine art.

    What fun you beautiful blog is.

  2. Thanks, Tish! That means a lot to me coming from you -- I have really enjoyed your blogs!
