If you'd like to send us photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow our basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. (Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it). And second, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to email@example.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)
*****HAPPY THANKSGIVING fellow Canadians!!!!*****
"Jitters is catching a little sun on the vintage folding chair that my mother re-weaved! It also one of my few salvageable pieces that went through Katrina."

"This is my whippet Marvin. I love him. The smiling couch photo was taken while I was photographing something else and he kept nudging me to get my attention. So, I turned around and he was laying there smiling at me. HILARIOUS. The bed photo proves that HE believes it is ok to sleep, nap, lay on top of my bed. Although, as a rule in my house, it is not."

"Winnie and Bendel wanted me to share with you some candid shots from over the weekend.
Winnie - French Bulldog, 10 months. Bendel - Toy Yorkie, 2.5 years."

"Here's my silly Yorkie named Marley. I think he thinks he's a cat--- loves to be on the furniture with something soft underneath him! This is his current favorite spot in the house."

"I have gone back so many times to your sofa that you built yourself, and have kept saying to myself "I can do that". I've been searching forever for the perfect sleeper sofa with no luck. Mine is nothing like yours, to be honest, but you insprired a fellow Ottawan to give it a shot. I found fabric that I couldn't pass up and just had to do SOMETHING with, and I came back your post again. It's finally finished and being lived on by my cat Doug."
- Erin (Ottawa, On.)
"This is Guapo. He loves being on furniture, whether its our vintage leather club chair, radiator cover or coffee table."
"I enjoy reading and viewing your Monday's posts featuring pets. They are so cute. I wanted to submit two pictures of my miniature pinchers for feature in next weeks 'pets on furniture' post"
"This is our 5 month old German Wirehaired Point, Otto, who was caught yesterday sitting on the living room chair. He's taken a liking to this chair as it's just his size and of course, the lightest colored piece of furniture that we own, now covered in brown hair. :)"
- Kristin (Denver, CO)
"At my mother's urging, I am sending you a picture of Jake - our 6month-old Weim/Lab puppy - on our Ikea leather couch. He's a big (and getting bigger) Cubs fan!"
"Violet and Coco, my perfect pair of library bookends! :)"

"Our lovely Ollie relaxing in his favourite spot on the mohair, suede and leopard print niche in our kitchen where he relaxes every day whilst we cook. A far cry from when Ollie first turned up on our door step as an escapee farmdog who wouldn't even come inside and slept on our doorstep!"
