Monday's pets on furniture

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my 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 then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

This is Sumo, my sister's Yorkie! I was dogsitting this week and thought he looked real sweet on my armchair!
- Justine (Montreal) 

Since Bongo got quite used to his celebrity status following your recent publication of his picture, here he is again, this time on another of his favourite spots: an ancient Bertoia Diamond chair - it may be old, but with a comfy piece of fur, it works just fine :)
- Marta (Montreal)

This is Skima, my pet fox, but not really though (she's an Icelandic Sheepdog). She is a major pillow hog. When she's not controlling every single centimeter of the bed, this is her favourite place to be, on our old pinstripe sofa, or as we say in Swedish - polkagrissoffa.
- Stella (Stockholm, Sweden)

This is Mini, My chihuahua/yorkie/baby, that my husband and I rescued last year.  She thinks she's queen and stays in bed long after I wake up. Bed from IKEA, quilt made by my wonderful Nana.

this is my sweet little Dante, an italian greyhound pup. He loves good design and sunbathing on his favourite Bertoia.
- Juan (Barcelona)

This photo was taken about six years ago of my greyhound, Ender the only time he ever got on my sofa! He never even tried to get on my sofa and he was such a gentleman. So I had to take a photo. Apparently he used to get on the sofa of his babysitter at her house and it was OK. This was my very first sofa and I don't have it or much of the furniture in the photo anymore. But I wanted to post this because early Thanksgiving morning last week, I had to send my sweet (13-1/2 year old) Ender to the Rainbow Bridge. He was the gentlest, sweetest loyal spirit I have ever known.

Sparky

His name is hank. 7 months old. Adler pillow. Modernica easy chair.
- Michael (Ottawa)

This is Walter, our 5-year-old bearded collie/terrier mix (?) who loves to sit here by the radiator and watch the squirrels. He is sitting on an antique stool, covered in a sheepskin to protect it. 
- Sarah (Massachusetts)

Here is a picture of my cat Bongo, who absolutely loves to lounge in my favourite Bird chair. Sometimes we have to fight for it!
- Marta (Montreal) 

This is my very naughty, but looking like an angel in this photo, 1 year old Groodle Murphy. It's a fight every morning to get him off my bed (Ikea Bed Frame, Marie Claire Bedding, Artwork Original) to start the day.
- Lauren

I sent you a picture you featured of our Great Dane squeezing onto the same chair. Apparently our dogs like to squish! Hope your readers will enjoy.
- Lindsay R. 

This is my dog Oliver sitting on my favorite (and his favorite) chair. The chair was my grandfather's and purchased some time in the 40's. My grandfather had it in his bedroom since he bought it, and until the day he died in 2009. It was one of few things that I requested from his house. It is special to me because it belonged to him, and now it is also special because Oliver has claimed it. I like to think it makes my grandfather happy to know that this little dog likes his chair so much! :)
- Lindsay A. 

Here is a photo of our two lovely dogs; Hank the sheep working dog (Kelpie) and Hugo (Weimaraner) on our bed. They love the faux fur blanket!
- Lauren and Clayton (Australia)

This is my rescued kitty Hermes testing out a new chair, also rescued, from the curb. both were great finds! i think the chair passed the snooze test.
- Dana

my dogs name is Azul. he just loves to sleep in mamas bed
- Laura (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

1 - This photo is from a fun project I am just starting which is made up of double exposed portraits of Ben (my rescued Standard Poodle) around the house. He loved taking this one because there were a million treats involved since we had to keep everything in the room perfectly in place for a few shots.  
2 - During Hurricane Sandy my boyfriend and I decided to make a roast chicken which Ben was very interested in (of course). The next day we were going to begin our lunch with the leftovers and because of his well mannered curiosity, we decided to let him sit at the table. I think he really wants to be one of us - I grabbed the camera and snapped away! 
- Dawn (Washington, DC)
