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!)

Please find attached an image of Lily the Graham’s dog – who often models for us on shoots

Sweet pea waiting for a friend.

This is Sprout - posing regally on a chair that belonged to my grandfather.

This is Dexter, a shepherd/husky rescue.  He's not allowed on the living room furniture but he constantly leans on the furniture and looks at us as if to say "technically mom, I'm not ON it".  The sofa is super comfy and big from Urban Barn, the end tables are from Crate and Barrel, the blue velvet curtains are from Ikea, and the blanket I made myself.

This second picture was allowed only for Desire to Inspire and it took me 10 minutes to convince him to get up on the chair!
The third picture is of Dexter sneaking a peak of the Desire to Inspire site!  If I'm too engrossed in an article he lays his head on the keyboard to remind me he's there. Plus he has his own dog blog at www.dextersdays.com so he prefers me to read his blog :)

Here is a picture of Harry relaxing on a sunny afternoon in San Francisco!
- Sandy

Our 8.5 year old Saint Bernard Moose just had a bath and he knows it's the only time he's allowed on the sofa. Even his drool is no match for our 10 year old White IKEA Göteborg slipcover sofa!
Hansy, our 13 year old white "tiger" day dreams of chasing zebras in the jungle while resting high atop his throne...

Here is our cat Fluff - who likes to perch up high on our mantelpiece.

This is Jasper, my newfie, in my apartment in New York City. She was feeling sick, so allowed on the loveseat for the day.
- Jen

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.
- Brad and Melissa (Evanston, IL)

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!
- Kate and Andries (Shanghai China)

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!
- Sarah (New York City)

Samson is a boxer mix we found at the post office.
Total dude. Totally in love.

I designed this chair and it has become the perminant nap spot for my dogs Oliver (left) and little 9 month old rescue Chihuahua Henry (right). Dogs know furniture! There is never room for me on this piece. After 8 months, Oliver, now age 14, is finally allowing Henry to share it with him. Henry is now a very proud little dog with the best seat in the house!
- Patricia (Dallas, TX)
