Monday's pets on furniture - part 2

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 desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)

"My border collies, Rex and Lou, hanging out on my Montauk overstuffed chair.  Truly a dog's life!"
- Kristi

"I took this photo when I caught our cats, Chicken and Skroggins, sleeping on the same sofa together. I couldn't resist the temptation to surround them with heart Post-It notes, as this was a rare moment between these two little frienemies."
- Amanda (Toronto)

"This is Henry, my co-workers Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  He comes to the office to hang out and is perfectly content sitting on our Generation by Knoll chairs!  Sometimes he falls asleep and snores!"
- Angela

"This is Yoko, my three year- old Maine Coon Cat on our well-used and loved Blu Dot sofa."
- Kate (Brooklyn, NY)

"Norton the wonder dog!"
- Lee

"Here's a photo of our mixed siamese cat Oscar. He's seen here sleeping on our bed. Above him is a painting by local (we are from Singapore) artist Paul Koh. The word painted is '猫', Chinese for cat. More of Paul's paintings are found in http://www.catmasutra.com/index.html. As quoted, the trademark 'eyes-wide-shut' and 'ear-to-ear grin' of the Catmasutra cats embody this deep-seated childhood innocence cum devil-may-care bravado."
- Kwang

"MacFarlane Hugo is my ten-year old mut. He's not allowed on the furniture, but he loves this living room couch that was reupholstered from its original mohair from my Great-great grandmother's home. This picture perfectly captures his 'I'm innocent' look."
- Lauren

"This photo is of Molly (age 13), sitting on her favorite piece of furniture in my sunroom."
- LuAnn (Louisville, KY)

Thank you for including our little ladies, Chicken & Skroggins, in your feature!
Also, I forgot to mention in my description that our sofa is William by Perez.

They are all so cute and the furniture is pretty great too!

They are all adorable. I should be glad, maybe, that our Lab Beau doesn't like the furniture. He prefers his basket, or laying underneath my desk in our office.

be careful!
photos were so great! but they're becoming more and more pet-pictures instead of furniture pictures :(

I have a cute dog-in fact a really cute dog. But I have to say, I am getting a little bored of other people's cute dogs. I usually just skip past Monday's post. Am I in the minority?

Kate - I don't know if you're the minority, but I only come to this site once a week to check Monday's Pets.

What kind of dog is norton!!?? We have a dog identical to him!!!

14 Jan 2014 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Norton the Wonderdog is a rescue dog we picked up from a high kill shelter. He sings very well, and is more of an intellectual type. He likes long walks on the beach and naps on his faux fur blanket. You know the type.
