Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 9 Aug 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!)

This is my dog Chip 🙂 He basically lounges wherever he feels like it, and lately he’s taken a liking to our white eames lounger… He slept through the whole thing!

This is a cat that was “ours” for a weekend in Matjiesfontein, (Karoo), South Africa. We stayed in a house built in the early 19th century with amazing interior.
Antonia & Desmond

This is Lula, my nearly-two-year-old cocker spaniel. She alternates sitting in my green $8 flea market chair and lying on the custom benches – just as long as she’s near the kitchen table and whatever food happens to be on it.”
– Rosemary (Little Rock, AR)

I’ve attached 2 photos of my sweet dog Yoda on the couch in our den. He loves to lie beside me while I browse all the amazing posts on your blog! Thank you for the constant inspiration!

My Maine Coon “Gabby” on our Eames Lounge.

There are a lot of critters in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and as for the last 12 years our lazy lovable Brittney ‘Jake’ takes it upon himself to keep all of my grandparents’ property. Between his patrols he finds time to relax on the newly built front porch.

Photo 1: Our older cat Camille (she’s 14) performing her chair hatching pose.
Photo 2: This is Kirin (yes, he’s named after the beer) and Ome, our recently adopted kittens sharing our version of the Ikea changing table hack, we made the bed smaller so it hides nicely behind the curtain.
Photo 3: Kirin and Ome on a cat perch made out of an old coffee table cut in half. We used all four legs to match the window height.

Our bloodhound Rufus, bleary eyed and caught by surprise on the couch
– Colin & Jada (Washington, DC)

My, excuse me, Speck’s (our mini long hair Dachshund) favorite chair is this leather recliner.  Can you tell how comfortable it is?

Rach says:

What a waste of all that beautiful furniture, now covered in DOG HAIR! Disgusting!

Rosemary says:

Thanks for including Lula! I’m sure she’ll strut around the house like a real diva now.

@Rach – I can respect that not all people are dog people, but for those of us that love our pets, a little extra lint rolling is a small price to pay.

Tonia says:

As normal all of them are so adorable, I can’t pick out a favorite oone out of the bunch.

Tonia says:

Out of this bunch the first one is my favorite, but they are all cute.

Heather says:

Cute cute Cute!! I especially love Rufus and Speck!!

Curt says:

I’m so Happy Chip is on here!! And Rach, if you get a dog, get a Maltese like Chip! They don’t shed 🙂

Stella says:

Well I must say that Yoda looks very handsome and like the most loved dog in this world. Anti Stella sends a kiss.

The picture of Chip cracks me up! He looks perfectly content in his very "human" accommodations! Like my dogs, Chip definitely had no problem with making himself at home and taking a nap! SOOOOO cute! Thanks for sharing. Love your blog!

Morella says:

Iris says:

Sure, the dogs are cute and all, but how lovely is that white eames lounge chair in the first pictures?! I LOVE IT!
