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 a photo of "Baby," a recent Poodle rescue, who is enjoying a nap on her favorite chair, a vintage McGuire chair I found for $15 at a flea market here in Duxbury, Vermont.
Pablo and Sasha are my lovely cats. They really appreciate a comfortable furniture.
Our little cheerleader Minky (caught mid yawn) on our new ottoman, meant for our brand new deck, only finished on Friday.

This is Rosco, a one year old dachshund sleeping on the couch.
The photo shows our Alaskan malamute TROMSO. Technically speaking, Tromso is not ON furniture because he is too big for our sofa or armchair (or basically any furniture item in our home)... but he fits in nicely in that cosy "nook" between our old commode (bought in a junk sale) and the armchair.

I saw these pictures of pets and would like to see if I could send you a picture of my cat. His name is Morpheus and loves to stay home on the couch.
Since entries were a little light for today, I thought I'd add in a couple of my own. The first one is Felix, the almost 30 pounder, relaxing on my vintage leather pouf in the living room. The next one is Milo curled up in his favourite new spot - a old crate fitted with a pillow. Above him is Edgar. That is a tub on a stand with a lid made out of tires. At the beginning of summer my husband decided it was a great spot for the cats (right under the window) so he flipped the lid upside down and put a blanket on it. Ever since one of the 7 cats is ALWAYS on it.
