Monday's pets on furniture - part 2

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  desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet!)

This is the world's best cat Lyman from Vancouver, Washington (US) - relaxing in the sun on the back of the couch....
He loves to lay in the sun on the kitchen table and he always looks so cute I can never kick him off!
- Meg

Our 3 cats (Walleed, Otta, Dwjareb) just love sleeping on our red cinema chairs.
- Judith (France)

Tippi is 15-ish. I tried to get a pic of her on the sofa but she would not settle down! Eventually I snuck up on her sleeping on the rug. (The sofa is Restoration Hardware Fulham. I am on the lookout for better pillows).

Although she isn't technically a 'pet', this is Olive an orphaned wombat which my parents hand-reared and released into the wild at their Farm in North-east Victoria. Here, Olive is pictured on one of the furniture pieces designed and crafted by my father. 
- Hana (Lima East, Australia)

Pete...my 20 year old cat on "his" couch. I don't even try to sit on it anymore.
- Stephanie

Here is my cat Harris lounging on my Danish hutch that I found at the Salvation Army amongst my mid-century ceramics collection.  Luckily he isn't really able to knock anything over since it is all earthquake puttied down.
-Christine

We just got a new couch - antique, blue velvet... yum.  Our cat, Maggie, clearly approves of our choice!

This is Margot, my English Bull Terrier. She loves to sleep and eat. All day. All night. If you look closely under the chair, you can see Elmer, one of the three cats Margot lives with. That's his favorite spot.
- Janne (Tvedestrand, Norway)

I love your Pets on Furniture posts and would love to see my Siamese Wedgehead boys Tyr and Thor on one of them! Here they are snuggled up together on my Womb chair, as they are every afternoon.
- Liv

Her name is Oakley, and this is HER SPOT. You sit there, and she will find a way to kick you out.
- Alex (Massachusetts)

This is our wing chair and our cat Thumper happens to be sitting on it.
- Bill

Penny is a year-old chihuahua terrier mix...the black part of her fur gets all over the couch and her white fur gets all over my black pants!
- Victoria

This is our 2 basset hounds who couldn't resist but to get in the way of a picture of our bedroom my wife was taking.
- Morgan (Newport Beach, CA)

My Australian Cattle Dog mix, Bailey, enjoying a relaxing afternoon on the couch in Carrboro, North Carolina.
- Kim

Biggie the pug loves coming to G-ma’s on summer vacation spending the day lounging.
- Cheri (Cumberland Beach, Ontario)

Bodi, 15-week-old Vizsla (littermate of William, from previous week), acquainting himself with the new Mitchell Gold club chair while attempting to will his toys to jump up and join him.
- Corrine (Toronto)

The pictures were taken at my house, the dachshunds on the chair are, from left to right, Hazel, Ernie, and Nooner and the Newfoundland is Foyle. They can't seem to sit on any of our chairs alone, they all have to dog pile onto one. Foyle commandeers the couch and all the dog beds (including the dachshunds') but seems to turn his nose up at modern furniture. Not comfortable enough? The hounds on the other hand can't get enough and prefer the Bertoia chair above all. Better to scratch their backs on!

This is a photo of Don (AKA The Don) at a cabin to the south of Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada.

This is our new Vizsla puppy, William. He's 14 weeks old. He's our third Vizsla so we know what we're in for.
Photo #1 - I was folding laundry the other day when I turned my back on William for a second. The camera happened to be close by. I'm thinking that this spot won't work so well when he's 60lbs!?!
Photo #2 - We decided that there was no point trying to keep him off the couches so we gave him his own. It's officially Will's chair.
- Karen

I'm a big fan of your blog and wanted to share a picture of my dog Pucci with you. She's fresh out from a trim and i shot her at work today on a chair that i believe is Danish from around the 50´s.
The sofa is a find from second hand store, just got it upholstered.
- Niina (Helsinki, Finland)
