Join Jim and Kaxan at Barkitecture Saturday and help save a dog!

Jim and our mascot Kaxan will be judging custom doghouses again this year at Barkitecture, benefiting Austin Pets Alive. The new location this year is Jo’s Coffee on South Congress. See you Saturday!


Barkitecture Austin is a custom doghouse design show, contest, silent auction and, most importantly, fundraiser! From its inception in 2005, Barkitecture Austin has become an Austin favorite and gained national exposure. Hosted by Animal Lovers of Austin, Inc. (a 501(c)3 organization) this architectural dog-centric event showcases doghouses created by Austin’s best and brightest architects, interior designers and builders. A fair that’s fun for all ages drawing in pooches and people alike, Barkitecture Austin attendees and their dogs get to check out and bid on these one-of-a-kind doghouses, learn about adoption opportunities from Austin Pets Alive!, shop local vendor booths, enjoy a Fashound Show, hit thephoto booth with your pooch and check out face painting for the kiddos! This year we are delighted to be partnering with Austin Pets Alive! as our sole beneficiary for funds raised and are excited to hold the event in the heart of SOCO, thanks to Jo’s Coffee and Hotel San Jose. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
