If humans look to personal flourishes to make a space their own, why should our canine companions settle for anything less? That's clearly what artist Kenya Hara (creative director for Japanese retailer Muji) had in mind when he sought to reinvent the doghouse and integrate it into the world of design last year.

The result (which we belatedly discovered via Fubiz.com): A set of structures designed by 12 architects called "Architecture For Dogs" that Hara says are aimed at changing "the way humans interact with their dogs.” Translation: Changing the way our pets live, i.e. better than us.

And Hara's project isn't the only proof. This year's roundup of holiday gifts for pets offers all the proof we need...
