Canopy/Shelter for dog to hide from the rain?

I have an old husky who likes to stay outside most of the time, even when it's raining. She doesn't like to go into enclosed spaces, so a regular doghouse or tent wouldn't work as a rain shelter for her. Most canopies available in stores are 10' x 10' x 6' or even larger, but I'd like to find something smaller, preferably without a floor, and easy to set up and take down.

Maybe you could build something similar to a carport?
4 posts holding up a shingled roof? It could even have a slanted roof to help block the wind a bit.
It wouldn't be easy to take apart, but it would be very sturdy, especially if you sunk the posts into the ground.

I want to be able to take it down fairly easily, so it doesn't kill the grass. The dog is 15, and I probably won't need this for a future dog.

Maybe something like this:

Aluminum Rapid Shelter - 10 x 10 at REI.com

Pricey, I'm sure you could find something @ Walmart or Sams or Costco or somewhere...

I hadn't seen the dog bed/canopy before. That might do it.

I hadn't seen it either till I started looking around for something that might help you. Never ceases to amaze me what is available.
