I have been in the Doghouse a lot...
When I was younger and living in England, that was my local Pub!
It was a standard joke...
"I am in the Dog House, but if I am late home, I REALLY will be in the Dog House!"

Next, I got married..
And spent a lot of time in the less desirable Dog House...
Now, I am unmarried, and my GF is fine with me choosing whatever Dog House I want to be in! In fact, next time we are back in the UK, she wants to be in the Dog House, with me!
In fact... these days, when I want to be in the Dog House.... I bring my own Dogs!
