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...and your pet happens to be sitting on it). And second, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's REALLY dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and PUHLEASE don't just send me closeups of your pet!!!)
"Cindy is the dog of my niece. She spends a few days holiday in my house and took the opportunity to relax on the couch.

"Meet Austin Mini-Cooper, our “Office Mascot” & guard dog at CCS Architecture, a boutique architectural firm in San Francisco. After a long day at the office, Austin reminds us all how important it is to relax."
"This is my nephew, Bocifery (Bo for short). He loves laying on the arms of the couch and chair and he looks soooo cute doing it!"
"I was taking pics of my Dog Chuy for my blog- but he doesn't like that, and he will make faces at me to make me stop. He's 13 now, and he's been doing for years. The chair was an auction find for 7 bucks. He likes it because of the southern exposure."

"We ( my wife Wendy and I) live in a two bedroom apartment in Mascot, Sydney. We live there with Molly. Molly is a maltese and is eight years old next week. From 'her' spot on the bed, we can watch as we go about the house hold chores. Along the way we've learnt that It's one thing to have nice home but what really makes it special is the people and the pets that live there. They give it is essential quality - life. A quality no amount of decorating can improve upon."
"Here is a picture of my cat "Mignonne" (French for cute/sweet little thing) sitting on her favorite IKEA Poang chair. She has claimed that chair to be hers ever since the furniture arrived."
"Here two pictures of our dog - Mona. She loves this spot in the sun..."
"This is our labrachowchow mix Paulie, or Miss P. She refused to turn around for the picture...might miss something : )"
"This is my dog Stacy, she is a staffordshire terrior/husky mix and this is her favorite spot in the house besides our bed."
"This little Abbey on our sofa, which has been deemed hers since we no longer really use it anymore. Abbey used to weigh 130 lbs when we adopted her and probably could not have climbed up on this sofa 2 years ago! We love her so much! (We believe her old owners kept her in one room with a consistently full bowl. She has lost a total of 57 pounds and is a happy, healthy baby now :))"
"That's Monalisa, one of my 4 persian cats!"
