Behold the first dog house you'd ever want to live in yourself. Back in my day, dog houses were little more than a couple slabs of leftover plywood quickly hammered together one Sunday afternoon. Dogs made due with the dirt floor and leaky roof without complaint. Those poor dogs were born in the wrong era. The dog houses of today have French casement windows, columns, and stairs. No word on air conditioning. I guess it is true when they say Americans love their pets. If you've got a pet you want to pamper, you can't go wrong with this Colonial mansion dog house from The Well Appointed House. It's available as pictured at left or it can be custom made to match your home. It can be yours for the low, low price of $6,160.
