Extreme Dog Houses

By: Keith

 

We have a bunny, not a dog.  I’ve had dogs before though.  They’ve all been inside pets, and I considered them part of the family – in a pet sort of way.  The thing about dogs is that they make great companions; they’re loyal and, unless they’re toy breeds, good workers.  Dogs all have one thing in common; they aren’t human and they aren’t discerning enough to give a crap what color the couch is or the floor or what their house is made of or even if their name is around their neck or not (despite what Lady and the Tramp would have you believe).  Attributing human emotions and motivations to animals is called anthropomorphism and it’s what well intentioned but silly people do with their pets.  Your pet doesn’t worry about status or decorations; he only cares that he get’s food and love. 

 

Dogs need to be needed because that’s what they were bred for thousands of years ago.  They don’t want to be equal parts of the family because that’s not how they work.  They’re pack animals after all so they need a little authority.  They’re happiest when they have a job to perform and are useful to their owners.  People who treat their animals as if they’re people are doing more harm to their pets than good.  An idle dog is a useless dog is a neurotic dog.  There’s a reason that all those pampered pooches you see are nothing but yappy nuisances.  It’s because they aren’t happy and they’re half crazy.  So here, without delay, is what I’m talking about: a display of sheer nincompoopery.

 

Dog Houses that Defy Common Sense:

 

 

This one’s actually not too bad compared to some of the others.  The house in back of it looks much worse.

 

 

 

This is Paris Hilton’s dog house.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This one belongs to Rachel Hunter

 

 

 I thought this one was a real house at first.  The dog out front gives perspective. 

 

 

This one was advertised as costing 387,000 dollars to build!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Notice the doggie swimming pool? 

 

 

 

 

It’s got a little Swiss flag out front. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think I saw this one on TV a few days ago on the FLN network.  It’s one of the biggest doghouses around.  It’s fully furnished (with miniature everything) and has air conditioning.

    I saw that show on TV the other day and it is crazy what we spend on our extended family members our for is a Beagle Cocker mix from a rescue and only goes outside to do his business but we have invested in personalized bowls, a water bowl that circulates the water and he has a Coach collar oh and he gets groomed once a month other than that he lives a Dogs life and as long as he keeps doing his job which is to bark when someone is to close he’s got a place to lay his head.

      STLDADDY: it’s funny how the term “spoiled” means different things to different people. I consider my bunny spoiled when I give him a grape whenever he asks for one :-) Of course, he’s not exactly a dog. When we did have dogs we didn’t have much money, so our idea of pampered back then was letting him sit on the couch (he was a german shepherd) Funny

    Another “look at me” antic. Dogs want companionship but I guess these ornaments for the rich aren’t special enough to be allowed into the main house.

      Mom: Good point. I didn’t think of the fact that these little dogs have these huge houses but seem to be excluded from the main house. I wonder if that’s the case or if these rich people just build the houses for show or something.

    These dog houses look nicer than my people house!

    Our dog made herself quite at home wherever we were. A member of the family. A little bigger than a bunny (and ate more), but wonderful. (And she didn’t require fancy digs.)
    .-= BigLittleWolf´s last blog ..Stereotypes, generalizations, and judgments are BAD. Or am I being too judgmental? =-.

      Wolf: They look nicer than my house too! Well, I have a condo so I guess that’s not a big stretch :-)

    With Salmon – The product contains at least 3% salmon. So if you buy a product that says “now with real beef” it may only have 3% real beef in it!

    Insteresting. But if you have the money why not. Take a look at http://www.woofwoofroofs.com these folks make a living selling their “Pet Enclosure”.

    when choosing to buy a dog house, always choose wood based dog house or if you can afford one, choose steel based.-.
