Extreme Dog Houses
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.
