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 firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)
"My cat 'Grey' decided to help out in a recent photo shoot in my studio at home. I was shooting the photo to capture my art in a house setting but kitty decided he wanted to be the centerpiece and ended up stealing the show!"
"Love the blog and just had to send in this pic of our cat "Skipperdoodle" on our bed. We got her after a cruel person threw her from a moving vehicle and our friends, who nearly ran over the injured and frightened kitten, brought her to our shop. She is now spoiled rotten and loving it."

"I've attached a pic of my two cats - Smokey and The Bandit lounging in my new $10 garage sale find - a Hauser wicker chair which is in our ensuite bathroom. Obviously the chair now belongs to them!"
"Attached is a photograph of Beans and Junie, our two chihuahuas. This was taken in my Aunt's and Uncle's living room at their beach house. As you can see, they had a very tiring day at the beach!"
- Lisa, Chad, Syd, Keegan, Beans and Junie Jorgensen
"This is Mayo, our 8 year old mixed breed pup."
- Rhiannon (San Francisco)
"Bella enjoys how the chair cradles her during nap time....i'm sure of it. ;)"
"This is our cat Linus snoozing on the couch after a long morning of playing with the dog!"
- Lauren & Colin
"This is our 4 year old Boston Terrier Brady! He's a total ham and always sits in the cutest positions like he's just 'hanging out like the rest of us!'"
- Melissa & Jason Bilodeau (Manchester, NH)
"My dog Smooch has already staked out his place on the brand-new furniture (I haven't even removed the tag yet!). He likes to be able to see out the front window so he can warn us of possible intruders."
