Monday's pets on furniture

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 closeups of your pet!)

Lex just loves sitting on top of this rustic buffet where he can enjoy a nice courtyard view... or simply sleep and dream of being at least as high as we are :-)
- Nelly

Here is our dog Ouray on our vintage green reading chairs. We found these chairs at a garage sale for $30, and immediately shaped our living room around them. And as you can see Ouray agrees on how comfortable they are.
- Sam & Candace (Pella, Iowa)

JD the 7 month old Phalene lounging in our Cotswold Cottage.  The couch is from Finland.  JD fancies himself more French than Scandinavian, or English, for that matter.

This is a day in the life of Atticus. When he is not looking out the window watching for birds, playing with his little brother, or scarfing down "good boy treats", you'll find him doing this. The dog needs his rest.
- Cassi Lanie (Salt Lake City, UT)

I took this photo yesterday and thought I should include it (cause it meets all my rules listed above!). Felix, the beached whale (and #6 of my 7 kitties), sitting on my leather Eames chair next to the front door (it's his favourite spot).

This is my dog Elliott on my Molded Plastic Eames Chair that my boyfriend bought me for my birthday.  I often come home from work to find little paw print on my favourite piece of furniture, but with a face like that how can I be mad? 
- Lindsey (Toronto, Ontario)

Our best pal, old shep taking a siesta on one of my recent projects.
- Matt

George hanging out on my micro-fiber SOFA-U-LOVE couch.
- Jen

This is Mammah. She is a Dogue de Bordeaux that I rescued 4 yrs ago. We joke that we should have named her Puddle or Gravy instead of Mammah. The chair is my favorite black leather Mitchell Gold chair bought at Midnight Farm here on Martha's Vineyard where I live year round with my husband, stepson, and three Bordeauxs.
- Melissa

Attached you find a picture of my two cats, "Gato" (white&grey) and "Itchi" (brown). The picture was taken the day Itchi came home from the animal shelter three weeks ago and it seems they both
liked that chair! The chair itself used to be my husband granfather's armchair. Its ca. 80 years old, very creaking, but we bought some Ikea cushions and I have to say...it´s really comfortable.
- Cris

This is my cat Kydd on his favorite Italian hand carved chair. He seems to love posing for the camera. What a ham!
- Tony (Minneapolis, MN)

The black dog is "Bella" my 12 year old Lab-Rott mix on the look out post that was once one of my Grandma's chairs.   I can't get them upholstered because my dogs use them to sit in a look out the window.  The brown dog is "Kimbo" a Boxer-Rott mix.  He is still a puppy, and is obviously ready for a nap!
- Dayle
  

Please see attached my parent's youngest 'child' Buddy, a Bichon Frise. He's very much a part of our family and thinks he's human. From the vantage point on the back of the white couch he can easily watch for any dogs that may pass by on the street or see when Mum and Dad come home. His hand-knit purple blanket is a newly acquired gift from a lady who recently dog-sat him. They all live in Vernon, British Columbia!
- Glenda (Seattle, Washington)

This is Tabby No Bones Lazzarro. She's resting on the couch after a long day. She really likes to watch MTV's 16 and Pregnant. 
- Erin (Los Angeles, CA)

Wow with a blanket like that I would say the Bichon looks Royal! Did I see "Buddy" in the Royal Wedding? Was he sitting at the Queens table?!

Old Shep made me giggle so hard.

Thank you for sharing so much cuteness! Mammah has attitude..

I am Atticus/ Ole Shep's mama. I am currently watching his lazy bones trying to recreate the above photo. He sure does make his mama proud.

Super cute...but beware of those types of flowers! Many are toxic to cats, especially the leaves. My kitten ate part of a lily and got sick and almost $1000 later she was better, but just be safe! :)
