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 closeups of your pet!)
This is Jasper, my newfie, in my apartment in New York City. She was feeling sick, so allowed on the loveseat for the day.
This is Nell, our retired racing greyhound on Pottery Barn's Manhattan sofa. Above her is one of four original prints from 1891 issues of Harper's Weekly - proposed renderings of the Columbian Exposition, which was built the following year.

Kitty follows me around the house, but especially loves when I work in my studio so she can get comfortable on my custom made peacock chair! We adopted her three months ago from a rescue organization. When she is not laying on the chair watching me, she likes playing fetch with plastic drinking straws (for real) or pulling upholstery nails out of the furniture!

This is Lucille, the queen of the house. She is seen here in the first 2 pictures on my mom's new bedding (a huge change from the last "pets on furniture" picture I had of Lucille) and then in my room yawning/hinting at me that she is no longer going to cooperate with the picture taking. Clearly we are (now) a household that doesn't shy away from colorful and dramatic bedspreads!
