I had a mighty interesting visitor. It was the Crown Prince of Germany's son. [â€¦] He is a mighty likable young fellow, about 26 years old, the second son, but the oldest one married outside the thoroughbred pasture and now he is in the doghouse as far as any succession is concerned.
1994, Karen Robards, Maggy's Child, ISBN 9780440208303, page 196:

2008 December 5, David Eddie, "My wife told me not to make a fuss on her 50th," Globe and Mail:
He forgets his anniversary, he's in the doghouse, but he pulls out of it with a romantic (i.e. expensive) dinner.
