Design for Pets
As Kristi Linauer, a Waco, Tex., interior decorator, put it: “Pets have become family members. We love them like children, so people are naturally drawn to anything that gives our pets a special place in our homes.”

As always, my house in under construction. We joke that it will be complete just in time to sell it. This time it is a complete gutting of our second floor to make way for a nursery and a proper master bedroom. Our current first floor bedroom is being transformed into a bedroom fit for a king – also known as our 4 year old boxer.
Snicker and judge all you want, but having a retreat for an 80 pound energy machine is a modern must-have -- especially with a tiny babe on the way.
This not so humble abode will be equipped everything my pooch needs (and wants) – from his feeding tray and toys, to his comfort crate and medications, and everything in between. And by in between, I mean sofa. Now I’m not completely irrational – I will not be purchasing a new sofa. I already have a small white low-lying mod sofa that was originally purchased for our living room (until we realized that you cannot properly sprawl out on a small white low-lying mod sofa). However, had I been in the market for something custom-canine, the Rodeo Dog Bed from Chiasso would be a contender.__________________________________________

Mom's best friend
My husband and I not only have a very inquisitive dog, but a baby on the way as well! This of course begs the question, "how do we keep the dog away from the baby," and vice versa. A sturdy baby gate will soon become a necessity -- keeping the dog out of the nursery while baby sleeps, and keeping baby contained (and the dog happy) once crawling.
My personal favorite (so far) is the walnut and brushed-metal Numi gate. Sadly, I'm having a hard time finding a US retailer. The search continues.

Spare no comfort for your four-legged family member
With my poor pooch going in for elaborate allergy testing tomorrow, I've thought of little else other than his comfort for the past few days. He'll be sedated, shave, poked, and then objected to daily allergy shots at home.
I've washed and fluffed blankets, prepared him a meal of venison (it's the only protein he can stomach) and veggies, and gave him a relaxing soak in the tub. Then I settled in for a little time with my favorite search engine.
I think we've blogged every modern dog bed out there -- expect this one.The BowHaus

West Elm's got its cowhide throw rug on sale for $263. It's a great price if you're in the market for one of these. But are you? I would like to believe in the description they post; that a cowhide is a "layer of sophisticated luxury." Truthfully, I can't look at one without imagining a cow swatting flies with his tail as he's lead to slaughter. I can't see the "luxury" part. Maybe if it weren't still in the shape of a cow.
How do you guys feel about these? Modern or maudlin?
