For the pet that has everything, and the owner who doesn't want to sacrifice her home's landscaping for a more traditional-looking doggy abode, enter the prettiest (and priciest) pup houses I've seen to date. Scottie's Fine Art Caves are pet residences inspired by natural materials found around British Columbia, Canada. Each of the three models (Browning Passage, Cannery Bay, and Vargas Island) use a pine root or cedar branch as the focal point of the design attached to a reinforced papier-mâché stone. The models are very spacious (the largest offers a 4-foot-square sleeping area), and allow pets to stretch out in privacy or to keep watch over your backyard (or living room) from a piece of in-home sculpture.
With my luck, North would confuse this house for an actual stone (the above model even comes with that little "sidekick rock") and decide to pee all over it. But, for those of you with nonterritory markers and money to spare, these puppy caves cost upwards of $5,900 excluding shipping — and when the homes weigh around 200 lbs. each, I'm guessing that's not gonna come standard-mail either. It's still fun to dream so check out all the models in a widget when you
