Harry Potter style living for Poncho the chihuahua
A cupboard beneath the stairs is no place for a boy wizard to spend his childhood, but one such cosy cupboard has proved just the ticket for a pampered chihuahua.
Poncho, a four-year-old chihuahua, from Rochelle, Georgia, is rather better cared for than Harry Potter ever was by the dastardly Dursleys, but their boudoirs bear some resemblances.
Poncho's owner Betty McCall has created a purpose-fitted room beneath the stairs in her house, Unlike Harry's, however, Poncho's sleeping quarters comes complete with a tiny brass-framed bed, chest of drawers, lamp, miniature grand piano, and artwork on the walls.
McCall's nephew Will Rigdon discovered the room upon a recent visit, and posted the photos on Imgur.
McCall told BuzzFeed she intended to use the room as a dog crate. But when she found an American Girl bed at a thrift store, and "a lightbulb went off".
"I thought it would be funny to use it as a dog bed."
"This worked much better and is more comfortable for Poncho."
