In The Dog House...Again!

Do you remember our last post about well-designed dog houses? It previewed five different dog house designs by freshman students at The Columbus College of Art and Design that were up for auction, with the proceeds going to a local rescue group. Any dog would be thrilled to take his afternoon nap in one of those gorgeous structures! Refresh your memory here: boccibeefs.blogspot.com/2010/07/in-dog-house.html.

Just yesterday our favorite program, CBS Sunday Morning, devoted their entire show to great design, and featured a segment on really cool dog houses we thought you'd love to see. According to this segment, dog houses in the back yard used to be de rigueur for most families in the early to mid-twentieth century. But we'd love to know what you think about their purpose now. Is it more about cool design rather than actual use? After all, I consider my dog house to be the entirety of Parental Unit's home!





P.S. We're excited to bring you some very special product reviews and give-a-ways coming soon-so please stay tuned!

Those dog houses are cool! Mama wants one *really* bad, as she says they'd look *really cool* in our yard. BOL, silly Mama. Last year? Year before? She bought us one of those cooling dog houses for the yard, so we could go cool off when we are outside. I have never been in it. Not even once. I think Felix keeps an old stuffed toy in there.

I think Bella views our entire house as her dog house too... though I was wondering if she wouldn't mind one outside to nap in. She usually moves from sun to shade and doesn't want to come in, after all...

Some of those doggie houses look better than my mom's house... but I still prefer it!
Kisses and hugs

Ha! We agree, Lorenza-they sure look better than our house! But we love that first, round one with grass on top-great idea!
