It probably was a Azumanga Daioh reference, since that series is very well known. However, the same criteria of "rich family, security fence, large yard, big white dog, and parasol" would also be an accurate reference for Ana Coppola from Ichigo Mashimaro. Konata could have had both examples in mind.
