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. Thanks! (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!)
This is DABU, our 2 year-old Japanese Chin. He loves our 60's "newspaper" arm chair.

This is our neighbor's dog Turtle, who paid us a visit, choosing to sit on this little cow chair from Anthropologie. She tried out our Marimekko ottoman and had a quick jump on the Johnathan Adler couch. Of all the choices, this folding chair was her preferred seat. This puppy likes to jump on and off furniture and rarely is seen sitting quietly in one spot. She has been the only animal (or person) to oust our cat from this chair. Needless to say, the cat seemed glad to watch Turtle go and quickly curled up to sleep in her spot within minutes of her departure. I'm pretty sure the kitty slept with one eye open, to guard her precious spot against a possible second canine invasion.
We would like to participate and send you a picture of our 10 month old French Bulldog "Django". Here on his favorite place on our Poul Kjaerholm PK31 3-seater.

I would like to submit "Gunther on Furniture". He seems to prefer the table over the couch...
