That's Random: The Dogs of Domino

With two growing kids of my own, I'm fairly immune at this point to the twinges of "baby lust" that used to draw me like a magnet to other people's small humans. But puppy lust? That's another story entirely. (The other day, in fact, a girl at my daughter's softball practice practically had to pry her family's new, 8-week-old Labrador puppy out of my arms when practice ended.)

If you, too, are almost as passionate about pooches as you are about home design, then you mustn't miss "The Dogs of Domino."

The slideshow showcases some sweet pups in a series of beautiful rooms shot for the magazine over the last couple of years. One thing you won't see? The dog hair that clings to the furniture and blows like tumbleweeds across the floor in just about any home blessed with a canine resident.

Oh well -- we buy shelter magazines for the fantasy, right?

I'm sure that many of these people also can afford a housekeeper, which also helps to cut down on the doghair. This is the main reason I have two SHORT-HAIRED dogs. It doesn't cut down on the muddy pawprints though.

So sweet! But somehow I completely miss the interior, as those cuties are drawing all the attention ;-)
