There are many obvious perks to being selected as the “First Dog”; getting to live in the White House being one of them. However, when the dog days of summer call and spending time outside is more routine, having a secondary hangout is a priority. Enter the Summa Canum (Latin for “First Dog”), The Obama Dog Home from Sustainable Pet Design.

Of course, this isn’t your average run-of-the-mill retreat. This dog house is rooted in eco-design and features a green roof, recycled wood from naturally felled trees (from the driveway of our 7th President, Andrew Jackson, no less.) zero-VOC paint and varnish, and a personal delivery in Neil Young’s all-electric 1959 Lincoln. In fact, the dog house is already in Young’s garage awaiting delivery. Now, all we need is a First Dog to lead the free canine world. Honestly, this is one lucky dog. However, if you want to treat your dog to a new dog house, then there are loads of places that can give you a dog house, worthy of a “First Dog”. If you are thinking of getting a new one, then you might be interested in checking out these Best dog houses for large dogs here. However, let’s get back to the Obama’s dog home. Here’s a bit more from the Sustainable Pet Design site on the project:

Sustainable Pet Design’s vision does not end with the arrival of the Summa Canum at The White House. Our intent is to create an ongoing testing ground for sustainable practices to which all Americans can contribute. Summa Canum can be retrofitted with solar panels, radiant floor heating, a graywater recycling system–just about anything you can imagine. When Summa Canum is tricked out to the max (or when the First Dog puts her paw down for some peace and quiet), we’ll build another, together.

Radiant floor heating? This sounds like something Paris Hilton would be interested in for her doggy mansion. Check out more details on this first dog house here.

Month one of “the year of the vegan”

News outlets are abuzz with the promise of new vegan products, celebs, and services and how that is somehow a fresh affirmation that our world is one turn closer to being fully free from animal use.

What About: “No-Kill” Eggs?

The reason for these advancements is not a sense of justice – because that can only mean going vegan – but is primarily driven by economics.

Vegandale Brewery offers the ultimate vegan night out

This brewpub helps veganism shed its stay-home-and-eat-tofu stereotype.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
