Monday’s pets on furniture – part 1

Posted on Mon, 16 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!)

Here’s my Golden Retriever, Rose, relaxing on my newly re-upholstered shabby couch. I found the couch at a resale shop, its been stripped, sanded, stained and waxed to a soft sheen complete with a down cushion.”

Meet Kiana.  She was rescued from Ohio, where pits are banned because of breed-specific legislation.  These days, she spends most of her time relaxing on her favorite chair, buried beneath the covers in our bed, or basking in the New Orleans sunshine.

Passionate Willow (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) loves to cuddle in my office chair at the Timeless Paper design studio. I rescued her two months ago and she is appreciative of her new loving home.

Hi there! Love your blog. This is Rosie, our Chinese Shar-Pei mix, curled up on our (obviously) super comfy IKEA sofa. We’re not quite sure how she got herself in this particular position, but this is her favorite corner in the entire house!

This is my dog, the name of it is Bidu, one lhasa apso of 3 years that like to sleep and is observing very.

This is our lovely girl Frida, she sleeps everywhere but she prefers the dining armchair from Eames.

Our recently adopted kittens (Lucillia & Harley) have in turn adopted the furniture in our second floor library. They get to enjoy the softness of the chairs and couches, while basking in the streaming sunlight. It’s now an even better place to read.”

Let me say a big THANK YOU for posting this pit picture. I already was in love with this blog, but now I'm addicted. Horray for open – mindedness toward pits!
