In The Doghouse

I have some bad news for you: Your puppy is growing up. He doesn't want to come home from a long, hard day at doggy day care just to share your pad. He wants his own place! Luckily, with Barkitecture Dallas right around the corner, it's the perfect time to pick up a new pup palace for Fido. Barkitecture is an awesome fund-raising event that supports local animal non-profits by raffling off one-of-a-kind dog houses designed and built by local architects. (Funds raised at this year's event will be used to improve White Rock Lake Dog Park.) Starting on Monday, the houses will be on display at the Dallas Arboretum, and they'll be raffled off October 18 at White Rock Lake. Raffle tickets are only $5. To get yours, or for more information, call 214-824-7852 or visit
