Modern Digs for My Future Best Friend

Cubix Dog Mansion by Best Friend's Home

I'm slightly obsessed with the idea of getting a dog. I grew up with one that looked just like that little guy in the middle, and I've been talking about adopting a pup for years now. When I do finally feel like a responsible adult who can handle the time and expense of puppy-rearing, Monkey will be living it up in his own little Bauhaus abode. (Yes, I plan to name my dog Monkey.)

This doggy pad reminds a heck of a lot of the Fish Condo I showed you a while back. Apparently, the market for modern pet homes is booming!

And, since this is a short post, I want to take the opportunity to thank a few bloggers who have done an excellent job of recognizing their peers (including me). Be sure to check out the posts below and get to know these lovely ladies:
