ONE lucky pampered pooch will get to enjoy this unique tepee-inspired mosaic dog kennel created by a Bournemouth-based artist to raise money for charity.

Natalie Guy’s Spring Blossom kennel features over 500 individually cut petals, making up more than 540 flowers with mirrored centres.

It took more than two months to make and is one of around 75 one-off dog kennels now on show as part of BowWow Haus London.

BowWow Haus London is a fundraising and creative collaboration between pet charity, Blue Cross, American not-for-profit organisation, Outdoor Arts Foundation, and photographer Drew Gardner.

Architects, artists and designers have created the bespoke dog kennels which are now on display across London in the first ever public exhibit and auction of artistic dog kennels in Britain.

The kennels are on show at several London venues, including St Pancras International and Stratford International station, and will be available to buy at a charity auction or via online bids on April 26.

Money raised from the sale of the kennels will go towards Blue Cross’ new rehoming centre.

Natalie said: “We are a nation of dog lovers, they are so part of the family, so why shouldn’t our pets have beautiful surroundings to sleep in?

“I can imagine a pampered small to medium dog curling up fast asleep in my kennel in the corner of a kitchen or conservatory, with fairy lights adorning the kennel at Christmas time.”

Natalie has previously crafted a number of mosaic sculptures for charity including elephants, lions and owls to extravagant eggs for The Faberge Big Egg hunt in London raising in excess of £150,000 in the process.

Natalie added: “It takes almost a month to create each sculpture, hours upon hours hand cutting each tile to create the perfect story; giving each animal a personality.”
