Miniature Masterpiece

House: Greek Revival, 1825-1860
Dog: Emma

When the frisky yellow Labrador gets tired of barking at cows, digging holes in the garden, and chasing skunks on the range, she kicks back in a clapboard version of an American icon. Surely, original homesteaders couldn't find a better place to pass a summer afternoon than under the shade of its broad porch, which sweeps around the house like a cool country breeze.
