If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my 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 then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!
This is Sumo, my sister's Yorkie! I was dogsitting this week and thought he looked real sweet on my armchair!
- Justine (Montreal)
Since Bongo got quite used to his celebrity status following your recent publication of his picture, here he is again, this time on another of his favourite spots: an ancient Bertoia Diamond chair - it may be old, but with a comfy piece of fur, it works just fine :)
- Marta (Montreal)
This is Skima, my pet fox, but not really though (she's an Icelandic Sheepdog). She is a major pillow hog. When she's not controlling every single centimeter of the bed, this is her favourite place to be, on our old pinstripe sofa, or as we say in Swedish - polkagrissoffa.
- Stella (Stockholm, Sweden)
This is Mini, My chihuahua/yorkie/baby, that my husband and I rescued last year. She thinks she's queen and stays in bed long after I wake up. Bed from IKEA, quilt made by my wonderful Nana.
Here are my two beauties Pete and his daughter Lola!
The first is a photo of Cookie, our 6 month old Shih Tzu/Bichon mix rescue puppy. She recently was spayed and has been tolerating her “cone of shame” very well. Normally she prefers to nap on the sofa with a soft blanket, but this day she chose the Ikea Poang chair. I had to snap a picture quickly with my phone before she decided to jump down so the quality isn’t great, but I thought the cone almost looked like a halo around her head and I couldn’t resist sharing. The second is a photo of Cookie lounging on the sofa (pre-surgery). She is adorable, sweet, and clearly has no modesty!
- Becky (Missouri)
This is Lola, my beagle of eleven months old, she loves to sit in this chair, made by artisans in Tlacotalpan Mexico and watch by the window neighborhood.
- Carolina (Xalapa, Mexico)
Clutch the dog.
This is my little baby. His name is TY which stands for Tiny Yorkie. He is my best friend and he sleeps on my bed, but not always in his, which is on top of mine. And he hates his picture taken.
