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 (from a camera phone) 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 sam relaxing on my bed. he loves to claw the blanket to death!

I'm in charge of SrPerro.com, which is the first dog friendly guide to Spain and what I do is photograph my dog in various places around Madrid and other cities... and, yes, sometimes he gets to sit on top of furniture, like here, on top of an old barber's chair. It's in an antique & furniture shop in Madrid. His name is Colega, he is five years old and a lovely mongrel.

This is our beautiful Lord Byron (born in Byron Bay) being zen on our Missoni Ottoman.

This is my brother's sweet dog, Hank, on a loveseat that's been in our family since the 80s. It's a simple piece that's been reupholstered at least two times. Many dogs have enjoyed this loveseat.

This is Teun on a designer chair. He loved me visiting as he got to do things he's normally not allowed - like climbing on the chair. I loved the chair and really wanted him to pose on it as their colours are very complementary. This image was shot in his very stylish home in the Netherlands (you should see his backgarden!).
- Nynke (Sheffield, England) 

Here are two instagram shots of mine and my roommate's rescues Oliver (little one, hers) and Harvey (larger one, mine). Most of my furniture comes from consignment finds or deeply discounted modern stores. I constructed my headboard from reclaimed wood that survived our old train station fire here in Panama City, FL. The mirror above the bed is a 150 year-old mirror that was given to me by a friend, and had been passed through her family for generations. Also, Harvey and Oliver are best best best friends.

His name is Anubis, and he's a long haired dachshund.  In this photo he is visiting my mother-in-laws house and loves it because she has a lot of beautiful chairs for him to feel like a tall dog on!
- Carissa

Here is Pearl (boxer bulldog cross), our beautiful rescue dog. We adopted her & she adopted the eames lounger, her favourite place to sleep! 
This Pearl's BFF Rocky (boxer). He is always sleeping on the furniture with his tongue hanging out!

- Beth & Vince (Oakville, On)

Although the quality of this photo could be better, it is of our beloved Bailey whom we were forced to say goodbye to last week. She loved to sneak into the guest room and make herself at home with the pillows for a snooze. We miss her dearly and the house is too empty without her.

Here's our very sweet Moonshadow lounging on our IKEA Karlstad sectional, with an IKEA Hemnes Bookshelf in the background. We rescued her from a pile of leaves on a chilly November day, along with her brother, when she weighed just 12 ounces! Their mom was nowhere to be found and I couldn't bare to watch them shiver any longer. We were NOT what you'd consider to be "cat people" by any means but she stole my heart and we've loved kitties ever since.
- Erin

This time I'm sending you pictures of Oswald, my 2 year old cat, chillaxin' on the tv bench.
- Janne (Norway) FYI: Janne's Boston terrier was featured here

This is Charlie...and around our house...he is a hero...read here...What with saving my life and all, we had to make amendments to the "no pets on the sofa" RULE (we have 3 dogs and 3 cats)  and now, we have abandoned the rule all together and just keep blankets on the sofas. I had removed the blanket from THIS sofa, to take some Blog Photos, and when I went to change my camera lens, and turned around...."CHARLIE!" but seriously...look at the face...could you tell him to get down?
- Lesli (Greenwood, VA)

Zuni & Banjo doing what they do best…
- Melissa (Bloomfield, NJ)

This is Isabela, a french bulldog of four years old, in her favourite corner on the sofa...and Isabela, in an english chair.
- Claudio (Porto Alegre, Brazil)

And because there weren't as many entries as usual this week, I thought I'd add in one of mine I found on my phone.
This is Phoebe, curled up in a basket (where I stash plastic bags) on top of my pantry. There's a tall scratching post structure to the left of the pantry which provides the agile cats access up there.
