Dog House Blog, In The Doghouse!
If you are ever in Idahos' Camas Prairie you might just think you have gone barking mad. For at the Dog Bark Park Inn, a bed & breakfast guesthouse you can stay inside the worlds' biggest beagles. This is the pet project of married chainsaw artists Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin. The pair built the 30 foot high Sweet Willy in 1997, funded through sales of miniature dog carvings. Needless to say the Trojan horse style abode is very dog friendly. They then decided to build the 12 foot high Toby, to add to the dog themed park. The dog lovers have said they chose the beagle for their architectural feat because it was a safe bet. Sweet Willy sleeps four, with a queen bed in the main section and two twin futons in the head. The interior is all decked out with canine-inspired furnishings. Guests enter the beagles' body from a private second story deck, and are treated to dog shaped biscuits left on their pillows. So next time you are in Idaho go and stay in the dog house.
