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 (from a camera phone) 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 Daisy, she has been lounging in a room designed by Dallas designer Julio Quinones.
This is my adopted Persian cat Omar. He is about 13 years old. His last hair-cut is growing out and it was a very hot day, so he decided it would be cooler to hang out on my vintage 1960's Bassett pivot coffee table (Craig's List), which is in front of my vintage 1970's sofa (Craig's List) and on top of my antique Kilim rug (hand-me-down).

This is my 8 year old Labrador "Jet" kicking back in our Papa-san chair on the veranda of our Queenslander.

This is Adhara on our couch next to her favourite cushions, which she always look for when getting ready for a nap. You can also see a part of our "Collection Wall" in the background.
This is "Link" our Chinchilla. He loves to run around and explore on the bed, chairs, bar and shelves, so it can be tough to catch him.

I own a vintage furniture shop in Toronto called Hawk Eyes. I have two little Brussels Griffons 5 years and 1 year old (Talulah & Oscar Ozzy Wee Man). They are well known on the Roncesvalles strip as they spend a lot of time in the shop and on furniture!
This is Beau, my 4 year old pit mix, chillaxin on my bed. He doesn't seem to mind a bit ghat his paws are dusty from our hike, and my duvet is white...
- Dina (Washington)
This is Hammie stretching out on my newly-reupholstered club chair (my first upholstery project!). Glad she seems to love it just as much as i do.
This is Sam, who is a holy terror, but he’s looking very serene in this pic, sitting on one of his favorite sleeping spots.
My husband and I met while working in Saudi Arabia. He brought home several beautiful (Persian? Turkish?) carpets that are now favourite lounging spots for our beloved kitty, Joey. Joey was adopted from the foster home he was born in, and he was originally named 'Lil Joe'. Ironic, considering he now weighs over 20 pounds!
