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 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 me closeups of your pet!)
P.S. There will be no pet post next week as I'm getting married this weekend and taking a few days off, but keep the photos coming as the pet posts will continue the following week. Thx!
"Here are 2 of my 3 big boys. The orange one is Fuzzy and the black and white is New Guy. All are rescue kitties. As you can see they enjoy spending time on our wrap around porch or veranda and are occasionally seen on my blog. In these photos Fuzzy can been seen on my rocking chaise lounge that I scored at a thrift store in San Diego about 5 years age and on in my daughter's room on her pink vanity chair. He truly has no shame. New guy is also on the veranda on a white retro bench that I picked up at the Alameda Antique Fair a few months ago."
"Here is my little ginger kitty Daisy. She sleeps all day and stays out all night! Such a party animal."
"We have three store dogs at our clothing boutique, V.O.D. In this photo, only our baby Daphne sticks to her own furniture - Diego takes a cozy nook in the bookcase while Rudy lounges on a Mies van der Rohe Brno chair!"

"My 1 year old English Bulldog, loves to sit on any couch and pillow possible. If it's soft and cushy, he's all about it. Here he is laying on my living room sofa in front of my favorite striped wall!"
"These floor cushions are Daisy's favorite napping spot. We think it's very 'The Princess and the Pea'."

"Fiona on a slate West Elm club chair. CB2 napkin as an arm cover (to cover up some scratch marks of course)."
"My two Bichons, Cotton (on the left) and Wilson, on my white slip-covered Fradusco sofa (hence the Argentine poncho throw-over...). Wilson is fine, but he insists on helping Cotton cure her injured leg by licking it, so for the time being they both have cones and run around the house crashing into furniture."

"Our Black & White Mini Dachshund Lulu & Sadie visiting CT for the weekend. We have their full attention when we eat."
