Designed by former Design Review Board member Leslie LeBon and built by Tom Simpson, the "Cattage" could serve as a model for a Laguna charmer. It featured catnip growing in window boxes, a cat weather vane, a feather toy on the front porch — yes, a porch, not a deck — scratching post columns and signs that read "Dogs have masters, cats have staff" and "What part of meow don't you understand?" Inside was a soft bed for lazy felines.
Architect Anders Lasater and contractor Al Oligino came up with "A dog's house for a dog's life." A partially shaded, comfortable bed provides is an inviting place for a pet to relax after working like a, well, like a dog. Water and food bowls are nearby on a finished wood deck.
The message is "Come play with me! Sit on my bench! Stay for a while!"
"Rascal House," designed by Daniel Martinez and built by Robert Carey is a Craftsman-style home, fit for a prized pet, with a front porch and interior living space with a comfy dog bed.
