Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 14 Jun 2010 by KiM

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 and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.comand PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

Here is my dog Baron on our Chesterfield.  Sometimes I come home and see him sitting like that waiting for me!  He’s about 100 pounds at 18 months and cuddly like a teddy bear.

My dog Tyke caught in the act. The Eero Saarinen Womb Chair is a definite no-no, but while I was out Tyke made it a yes-yes.

here i send you 2 pictures of my “little tulip” chairs by paul paulin with my cats “eimer” (black and white) and “chef” (the grey one) on it, 5 year old sister-cats. chef used to sharpen her claws on it but now – after some damage – she fortunaltely stopped. in addition comes another picture of eimer on my former bookshelf. she loved to be there when visitors where in the apartment. she could overlook everything being in a relatively safe place at the same time.”

Here is our precious english bulldog ziggy who lives on all our furniture including our bed…

This siamese kitty is Gros Garcon, aka GG. He is a very kind and laid back fellow who came into my life about 2 years ago, while I was fostering for an animal shelter. He met and befriended his best buddy Petite Fille, aka Mimi, while residing at the shelter, and their relationship was just too sweet for them to part ways when the time came for a permanent home — so I took them both in. They are absolutely adorable and make for great additions to my family.

This is my co-worker’s King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Henry, asleep on the sofa.  As you can see, he’s getting a lot of work done today in our office.

my almost 4 year old dog cici (dalmatian mix with pit bull terrier) enjoys the couch…and cici is in her favorite position on the couch, showing off her polka dot pink belly

Here are photos of my beloved Belgian Shepherd Zoe, enjoying life on the sofa in my home office.  I’ve chosen to make extra covers for the pillows and cushions to keep things clean.

Are you sure Carolyn’s dog is not just pure Havanese like mine is? Mine looks like hers and is pure Havanese. But I guess Carolyn would know best. Mine is classified as Champagne Mink in the colouring… and boy, is she ever! All posh and high class ; – )

I love you pets on furniture posts. Baron–perfectly named–is my favorite of this batch. The look on his face is the best.

Baron, the bulldogs and the spaniel, everyone of them is too cute. Love them all.
