Monday’s pets on furniture

Posted on Mon, 22 Nov 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 desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.comand PLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!)

This is our 3-year old french bulldog Stella. She loves soft things to sit on, sofas, beds and humans.”
– Maria (Finland)

We were gifted this table and chair set by family in Florida, which we quickly stripped and re-stained for a more modern look. We proudly present our 2 year old Pomeranian Yogi. He loves to sneak onto the table, hopefully with this plate setting, he’ll never do it again.
– Nathalie and Deena (Orlando, FL)

While photographing the lovely home of Harriet Zaretsky, her adorable puppy Rosie was happy to show off this Jonathan Adler blanket.”

Gordie (the little white Toy Fox Terrier) and Jack (the great white shark, I mean Boxer) love the new skylights and built in book cases in our what-not room. (Ahem, so does my husband who has appropriated the room for his guitar practice). Shortly after I took this picture, Jack took it upon himself to eat the new flokati rug. A 50lb, 5 month old Boxer does like a nice new rug. Grrrr.

I have so many pics of my pets. But my little rescue dog BUBBA a chihuahua and Jack Russel mix always cracks me up.
My son often builds a tower of pillows in the kitchen seat and Bubba loves to sleep up there.
Bubba also loves to sleep on the back of ANY couch. This one is in the library.

My chihuahua Ren (named after Ren Hoek of Ren & Stimpy) loves nestling on top of the back cushions of my mini sectional sofa in our cozy new apartment.

I was attempting to take a photo of the quilt I finished, but Gus was offended that the camera wasn’t pointed at him.  He remedied that situation.
– Lexi (Savannah, GA)

Here are two pictures of my cats Mimi and Valentim. The first one they are on our colorful sofa and the second one show the cats enjoying the flowers and the table made by a friend!

This is Logan showing his approval of our new leather chair.”

Here is my adorable rat terrier, Poochi, living it up on my love seat.”
– Juliana Payne

Here’s Valentino. It’s quite a close-up of him (we don’t say “it” for our pets in Portuguese) but it’s actually a close-up of my own hand-made carpet.

Nathalie says:

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thanks for posting my little nephew Yogi. He'll NEVER be on that table again LOL.

Sarah says:

Love the doggie on the table. Set him a place!

Sarah B says:

As usual, they're all adorable. I love the music room 🙂

I'm soooo excited to see Bubba included in my favorite post! Thank You!! A home without a pet, is like a home with no heart!

Judy says:

To Maria with Stella. Our Frenchie/Boston looks just like Stella and sits the same way with her front leg to the side of her back legs. We thought is was just her but it must be the breed. What do you feed her, she she looks super shiny?

Kit says:

Jill~ Love your pooch…but I am crazy for all of your fabulous pillows!!!

Ivana says:

Wow!!! We (my husband and I) are so happy to see Valentim and Mimi´s photo!!! Thank you so much! Now, our cats are famous! 😉

Oh dear!! the cat in the first photo is totally adorable and gorgeous! I love your pets articles, always look forward to them!!

Hannah says:

All the pets on furniture are so precious! It seems as little dogs like chihuahuas love the back on any sofa! Mine sure do!!!

Maria says:

Judy, It must be the breed! She always sits like this or with both her back legs between her front legs. 🙂 We give her raw meat and then dry food (is it called that?) containing no beef or wheat.
