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!)
"Minette, enjoying a lazy Sunday afternoon in Montréal."

"This is our 3-year old french bulldog Stella. She loves soft things to sit on, sofas, beds and humans."
- Maria (Finland)
"We were gifted this table and chair set by family in Florida, which we quickly stripped and re-stained for a more modern look. We proudly present our 2 year old Pomeranian Yogi. He loves to sneak onto the table, hopefully with this plate setting, he'll never do it again."
- Nathalie and Deena (Orlando, FL)
"While photographing the lovely home of Harriet Zaretsky, her adorable puppy Rosie was happy to show off this Jonathan Adler blanket."
- Bethany (Los Angeles, CA)
"Gordie (the little white Toy Fox Terrier) and Jack (the great white shark, I mean Boxer) love the new skylights and built in book cases in our what-not room. (Ahem, so does my husband who has appropriated the room for his guitar practice). Shortly after I took this picture, Jack took it upon himself to eat the new flokati rug. A 50lb, 5 month old Boxer does like a nice new rug. Grrrr."
"I have so many pics of my pets. But my little rescue dog BUBBA a chihuahua and Jack Russel mix always cracks me up.
My son often builds a tower of pillows in the kitchen seat and Bubba loves to sleep up there.
Bubba also loves to sleep on the back of ANY couch. This one is in the library.

"My chihuahua Ren (named after Ren Hoek of Ren & Stimpy) loves nestling on top of the back cushions of my mini sectional sofa in our cozy new apartment."
- Nicole (Oakville, ON)

"I was attempting to take a photo of the quilt I finished, but Gus was offended that the camera wasn't pointed at him. He remedied that situation."
- Lexi (Savannah, GA)
"Here are two pictures of my cats Mimi and Valentim. The first one they are on our colorful sofa and the second one show the cats enjoying the flowers and the table made by a friend!"
"This is Logan showing his approval of our new leather chair."
- Sam (Philadelphia)
"Here is my adorable rat terrier, Poochi, living it up on my love seat."
- Juliana Payne
"Here's Valentino. It's quite a close-up of him (we don't say "it" for our pets in Portuguese) but it's actually a close-up of my own hand-made carpet."
- Juliana Pan (Brazil)
"This photo is of my beloved dog Jakko on the bed."
- Anne-Lise (Oslo)
