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 closeups of your pet!)
We bought a leather couch just because of our dachshund, Tucker. We wanted to avoid the vomit, snot, and other liquids that seem to seep out of our animal from ruining our furniture. Success! Now if only we’d thought of the damage his nails would cause.

This photo is my 5 year old Shih Tzu, Oscar, on my Grandmother’s antique orange velvet chair. You can also catch a glimpse of her beautiful record player next to it. Oscar always makes himself right at home; He has never met a chair he didn’t like!

In the past few years since moving in to my downtown Toronto loft I have made many furniture purchases. I often take a photo to track the transformation of my space or share with friends and family. My bengal cat Argos is usually the first to make use of any furniture in the house. This is the new sofa and area rug, cat approved.
We rescued Mon when he was a puppy. He loves this armchair, which can be rotated so he can keep an eye on us at all times.

Maxwell, our chocolate lab, is not supposed to be on the couch. Sometimes Maxwell is bad.

I’ve sent in a little pic of my two furry babies Alfie (left) & Andi (right)… loving life on the faux fur throws we use to ‘snug-up’ our King Furniture leather lounges during winter.
And couldn’t help but include a pic that truly highlights Alfie’s love of sitting atop any throw/scatter pillow he can find…. no matter it’s shape (or more challengingly for me – it’s value !)

Locksley thinks, ‘She REALLY needs to get this chair covered. AND hang this picture!’
I’m sending you some pics of my lovely ginger girl – Pannacotta.

Here’s a picture of Cocoa-Puff on the Lazy Boy – how appropo!
