15 Times Being in the Dog House Was a Good Thing

July 22, 2016

We’re big fans of dogs here.  They’re much more than just pets.  They’re members of our families.  They’re our best friends.  And some of them get a little bit spoiled.  Since we’re in the business of helping people find homes, we thought it would be fun to share where some of our furry friends hang their hats.  Some of these doghouses are just plain ridiculous, but all of them are pretty neat to look at.  Here are 15 Times Being in the DogHouse Was a Good Thing.


#1 Lake House
