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 both pet and furniture takes centre stage. (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. For example, if it's REALLY dark or fuzzy (camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks!
"As and avid reader of your blog, I wanted to submit some pictures of my French Bulldog, Navy. Here he is sitting on the beautifully designed and affordable West Elm overlapping squares arm chair. This is one of his favorite napping spots, especially when the sun it hitting it just so. You can see more pictures of Navy on my blog: www.navybeanonline.blogspot.com."
"I would love for Junior to be remembered. He is sadly no longer with us - he was a sickly little cat who only made it about 2 years. These are from when he was a baby."
"I have attached some photos of my lovely dog Finn hanging out in my sitting room. I think she looks quite regal sitting in my husbands favourite chair."
- Paula (Ireland)
"I'm attaching a photo of 2 of my favorite things: my pup Pepper and my Eames rocker. Conveniently, Pepper enjoys it as much as I do!"
"I’m obsessed with your site almost as much as my dogs! Of course not quite, but I do visit everyday and get so much pleasure and inspiration from your pictures. I am a jewelry designer – so everything inspires me. I also keep dreaming of how I will be redecorating. I keep saving your pics for inspiration! Love, Love, Love!!!!"
- Jill (Kim - Do check out her jewelry = GORG!!!!)
"For your consideration, Finn, man about town...
He has a brother, Thomas and for some reason that I still haven't figured out they love to have there photo taken, I have never posed them not that you could every pose a cat) they just seem to have the knack!"
"I thought I'd send along two shots of my pets on furniture for your series:
1) The first is my dog "Wallace" a corgi-terrier mix lounging on his favourite chair
2) The other image is my Himalayan cat "Gil" trying to figure out what fabric swatch will best match him for his chair."

"This is Opal and her red Ikea chair. Since the day we brought the pair of chairs home Opal has taken over them. She looks so gorgeous on a red background that we let her have them. Opal is a rescue from KittyKind in NYC."
- A&B from NYC
"Here are my best favourite photos about my pets. I hope, you like it!"
- Zyta (Hungary)
...and because I could not resist this photo...
"thought you might find this pretty funny... I added it to my blog the other day."
**** I just found out this morning that Jewel, my uncle's golden retriever and a huge part of our family, was put down a couple of days ago. She had a large, painful cyst on her paw that would not go away and kept growing (seen in the photo). I unfortunately don't have one of her on furniture (my uncle would have given us crap for allowing that). We'll miss you Jewel!
