I wish I'd been in Oakland in 1999 to see the exhibition I've stumbled upon this morning. That year, the Oakland Museum of California presented a show called Dog Haus: Architecture Unleashed.
24 outstanding designs were chosen by a panel of architects, designers and animal experts, and though the designs could be fancy, the shelter was meant to be serious. One was even designed for a dog living with a homeless person.
