We'd like to be in this doghouse: Fabulous homes for your pooch

We'd like to be in this doghouse: Fab homes for your pooch

In this week's KHOU CultureMap Moment, Channel 11 morning anchor Lily Jang and CultureMap's Tyler Rudick take a look at some amazing doghouses that will be on display this weekend at the fifth annual Barkitecture Houston Tour and Charity Auction. Barkitecture Houston highlights more than 20 different entries from some of the city's most talented architecture firms at Green Street in downtown Houston that will be auctioned off Saturday afternoon, with proceeds going to Pup Squad Animal Rescue.

If your pooch is a Star Trek fan, there's just the home for him — the Dogship Enterprise. Among the other designs are a home for first responders — complete with a flashing light on top — perfect for a firefighter-lovin' Dalmatian, a doghouse in the shape of a moving circle/treadmill for that pooch who might need to lose a few pounds and a wooden house with intricately-patterned cutouts for the doggie art aficionado.
