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 closeups of your pet!)
I designed this chair and it has become the perminant nap spot for my dogs Oliver (left) and little 9 month old rescue Chihuahua Henry (right). Dogs know furniture! There is never room for me on this piece. After 8 months, Oliver, now age 14, is finally allowing Henry to share it with him. Henry is now a very proud little dog with the best seat in the house!

A photo of my Lions Head Rabbit, Harriet, on our vintage velvet chair. It is her favorite spot in the house.

Photo 1 is my American Bull Dog, Stella. Photo 2 is my mom’s Frenchie, Annie Baby. Photo 3 is my Frenchie, Georgie. Photo 4 is our English Bulldog, Gus. !

This is our cat “Jacky” some years ago and nowadays. Meanwhile she's an old lady, already 15 years sharing our family life.
1. This is a photo of my five month old kitten, Slouchy sitting on my new chair which I found on a nature strip during hard rubbish! In good condition, I thought it would be perfect to keep my handbag on. My other cat Eva, is looking on.
2/3. This is Slouchy and Eva hanging out in our bedroom. They love to sleep on the bed because the heating duct is in the roof and blows directly down. Very comfortable during winter. This is my favourite patchwork quilt cover, by PIP Linen.

Attached are photos of my cats approving (or rather, indifferently noticing) the new Eames-style chairs gracing my dining room. I have no design sense at all, hard as I may try, so I am mostly sending this on the insistence of a dear friend who does have style and got me hooked on Desire to Inspire. I simultaneously love and fear color, but these orange babies were love at first sight. The wide-eyed tortoise-shell kitty is Linus (he can do the Puss'n'Boots big-dewy-eyed stare that can melt steel) and the black kitty is Cimarron (a fierce foster cat who has a thing for sleeping on people or my violin case).
This chair can fit two people. It's Archie's favorite chair. He's a 3 year-old Giant Schnauzer/Italian Spinone mix I adopted from the ASPCA. Or maybe he adopted me?

I HAD to include this "entry" from Lolita: I just came across this picture on craigslist and thought of (bad) Pets on Furniture.
(Thankfully the seller was offering this chair for free)
