Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 12 Jul 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, location and a brief description can be sent to and PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

I hope you’ll enjoy this photo of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Harvey, perched on a Louis XIV style armchair. It is upholstered with fabric featuring butterflies, dragonflies and text from Shakespeare. It was a wedding present from my mum and it is my favourite piece of furniture.

This is our cat Solo. She has hit the “teens” and are out running all night, but here we managed to capture her lounging on a nice chair bought at a second hand shop in sweeden. The photos are from our forest cabin.

I thought I’d contribute my picture of my dog Biscuits Jackson sitting on my favorite chair purchased for just $15(!) from the Seattle Goodwill- otherwise known as “Goodwillies”- which I miss dearly now that Biscuits and I live in South Africa. The picture was taken by the famous dog photographer Erin Vey

My name’s Corinne, and this is my wiener dog Nigel Brutus. We are in Chicago and have lots of love for great furniture and design!

1 – At my bff’s house in LA and just snapped this of her dog Lu.
2 – Ps. This is my new rescue, Stan’s, maiden voyage to his cousins house in LA. Although he is still a thin, thin guy – he has gained 4 pounds since I rescued him in March. Hank now adores him. Go Stan!!
3 – Hang’n with the LA cousins‏. Pam’s son Henry keeps sending these pics while we are out and about.

This is Winston, my (almost) 1 year old bunny. He is a very curious bun who loves running around our apartment, it was hard to get him to sit still long enough to take a photo!

This is a photo of my daughter’s cat Bille when the two were visiting us.

Here is a picture of my siamese cat, Samba, he loves to nap on top of my folders and papers, while i work on the dining table.

Here is my Cocker Spaniel, Beamer. This picture basically conveys his personality perfectly. He thinks he’s a person, he’s spoiled to death and does just about whatever he wishes; including taking up the maximum amount of bed space that he can.
