Pampered pooch lives in a castle

Archie, a 10-year-old pet Lhasa Apso, has been upgraded from a kennel to a castle thanks to his lottery-winning owners. Susan and Michael Crossland have been spoiling him since they won £1.2 million on Lotto in 2008 but still wanted to give him the royal treatment.

The Crosslands commissioned a kennel that looks just like the King George IV Gate at Windsor Castle. Archie’s magnificent hand-painted kennel castle is 6.5ft by 6.5ft and took seven people 240 hours to build. It features a red carpet, throne and even a hot tub. Susan says "He's my dog at the end of the day. Why not spoil your dog?" Take a look.
