The House the Dog Found for The NYTimes

C.C. Hirsch and Vanessa Pappas spent three years looking for a house to buy in Brooklyn, where Park Slope meets Windsor Terrace. But it wasn’t their Trulia searches or open house visits that led them to the home they eventually bought. It was their miniature schnauzer, Ziggy Stardust. 

Fortunately, finding an architect who could convert it into a single-family home didn’t require Ziggy’s social skills. The couple was already smitten with the work of Jane Kim, who had renovated a friend’s brownstone in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, and designed the interior of Milk Bar in Prospect Heights, a favorite brunch spot.
