Yurts are very fashionable for the environmental set. Why not a yurt for your favorite pooch? More info about yurts here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yurt



Supplies (all from the 99 Cents Only Store):



~ Chopsticks
~ Rubber bands
~ Masking tape
~ Strainer
~ Velour baby blanket (had to go back and buy another one)
~ Picture frame
~ Kite (for string)
~ Rug
(Chihuahua not from dollar store)

Total spent: $9

The frame was constructed using double-strength chopsticks and rubberbanding them together at the joints. This made a very flexible frame. It was then attached to the picture frame as a doorway.



The roof was made by  sticking chopsticks into the lid of the strainer and then covering it with the second baby blanket. 



A stylish, environmentally-friendly, and economical abode for our dog, Chuy

Yurts = pretty sweet
Yurts for dogs = so cute!
Yurts for dogs constructed from dollar store items for a total of $9 = fan-freaking-tastic!!

I'm totally loving this, it's so cute, I like how you put the definition in the description too, so we can learn! The inclusion of the strainer is great, and the frame around the door....sweet!
