    Default Mozart the pug who lives in his very own pie-shaped pub

    Could this be one of Britain's most pampered pooches?

    Should Mozart the pug ever need hair of the dog, he has everything on tap in this kennel - a miniature pub complete with wood panelling and an oak bar.
    The 4ft by 3ft kennel, which also boasts exposed wooden beams and a stone-effect fireplace, was custom-made for the dog to accompany his owners' pie-themed pub.
    Handyman John Ward took more than six weeks to design and build the kennel, drawing inspiration from the PJ Pie pub in Boston, Lincolnshire.

    The plush dog house comes complete with a pie-crust roof, bone-shaped windows and a traditional pub sign featuring Mozart's own face.



    House-proud: Pug in his very own boozer

    Mozart's owners Mike and Helen Pichel-Juan, whose pub grub specialises in unusual pies, suggested John design the kennel based on one of their dishes.
    John said: 'One evening, over a couple of pints, Mike said "I bet no-one would ever make a pie-shaped kennel". And that was it. How could I resist?

    'I wanted the mini-pub to be authentic as possible. I really pulled out all the stops.
    'Some people scoff and wonder why we've gone to such trouble for a dog but we've only got one life, and you've got to inject some fun into it.'

    In the dog-house: Pug's kennel matches his owners' pub

    John donated the kennel free of charge to Mike, 60, and 54-year-old Helen, forking out the 250 for materials himself.
    He added: 'It was quite a challenge to carve all the bricks from wood. I then covered them in seven layers of paint and used sand to give the brick effect.'

    Mozart's kennel has even been blessed by a vicar, the Reverend Martin Draycott, from Derby, in a 10-minute ceremony.

    Rev Draycott said: 'I met the inventor and heard about his creation and couldn't resist blessing his home. It's not often I bless kennels but it will be well worth it.'

    Helen added: 'Mozart needed a home and should have one which reflects our home. All creatures great and small deserve the same as humans do.'

    I think pugs are darling too! I just can't deal with the shedding factor though.
