    Cats get all the glory on the interwebs these days, but let's take a moment to appreciate the old classic: dogs. Man's best friend, favorite of rescue squads and forensic teams, soldiers — and now cute canines can add "inspiration for avant-garde architecture" to their résumé!

    The aptly named Architecture for Dogs is a self-described "extremely sincere collection" designed by professional architects whose aim is to "make dogs and their people happy." Presented for you here is a full range of the collection's designs, and if this isn't the most incredibly heartwarming, giggle-producing, squee-inducing thing you've ever seen, then...well, we've failed you.

    The best part? Anyone can make these designs for themselves! Aside from being an amazing piece of furniture, these pieces — though some are more practical than others — are sure to bring endless joy to any pup-and-person team.
