Doesn’t this dog look happy to have his own doggy sofa to sit on? At the Homearama house show one of the most popular rooms was this one, created just for the canine residents of the home.
There were little doggy beds for each pet. Note the paw-print cut-outs in the headboards and the bone-shaped pillows. Lily loved the little table between them with the silhouettes of the dogs on it.
On the other side of the room, the dogs have a place for their leashes, a flat-screen TV (a dog show was playing for them), dog treats in glass jars, silver bowls for their food and water, and framed photos.
Doesn’t this look like doggy heaven? Okay, it’s way over the top and ridiculous, but that’s Homearama for you. The excess is part of the fun. These houses were so big that they had to invent creative uses for rooms like this.
The Dog Room was featured in the Manier Sherridan house at Homerama, built by Hensley Homes. Here’s what it looks like from the outside:
I’ll be showing you more photos from inside this beautiful ranch-style home as soon as I get all 500 of the photos I took of the Homearama houses cropped, sorted, and labeled. This was one of the smallest houses on the Homearama block at “only” 6,180 square feet, and one of the least expensive at $1.8 million. I loved the exterior with the shutters.
Would you like to have a room just for your pets? Or are you one of those people who hate to see dogs dressed up like people and treated like them, too?
We have pet allergies in our family, but before we realized our cat Darcy was what was making our son so sick and had to give her away, I would’ve loved to have had a room set aside like this for her kitty litter and food, at least.
