Monday’s pets on furniture – part 2

Posted on Mon, 25 Jul 2011 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[.]com and PLEASE don’t send closeups of your pet!)

Please find attached an image of Lily the Graham’s dog – who often models for us on shoots

Sweet pea waiting for a friend.

This is Sprout – posing regally on a chair that belonged to my grandfather.
– Emily (Brooklyn, NY)

This is Dexter, a shepherd/husky rescue.  He’s not allowed on the living room furniture but he constantly leans on the furniture and looks at us as if to say “technically mom, I’m not ON it”.  The sofa is super comfy and big from Urban Barn, the end tables are from Crate and Barrel, the blue velvet curtains are from Ikea, and the blanket I made myself.

This second picture was allowed only for Desire to Inspire and it took me 10 minutes to convince him to get up on the chair!
The third picture is of Dexter sneaking a peak of the Desire to Inspire site!  If I’m too engrossed in an article he lays his head on the keyboard to remind me he’s there. Plus he has his own dog blog at www.dextersdays.comso he prefers me to read his blog 🙂
– Angela (Oshawa, Ontario)

This is our 2 year old great dane Jonas, sitting on our leather ottoman. He loves sitting like this on couches, chairs, or on our laps!
– Beth and Chuck (Kansas City, KS)

1 – This is our cat Penny, taking her usual late-morning nap. Ten years ago we found her abandoned at a rest stop outside Niagara Falls, wearing a collar with a Denver phone number. Thankfully, our phone calls were not returned.
2 – This one’s kind of fuzzy, but it’s her sitting on the footboard…

– Elizabeth

This tattered settee is in desperate need of recovering however Benjamin and Sophie, our 11 year old sibling Lhasa rescues, just won’t hear of it.

This is Isaac (Newton) playing on his beloved sofa in my boyfriend’s apartment in Trieste, Italy.
– Giorgia

I would like to submit a picture of our family cat Willie Greene “the baddest pimp you’ve ever seen”. The picture I’m sending is of Willie Greene surveying his kingdom 🙂

Oh my goodness, Dexter is so adorable!! I too have a husky/shepherd, and he is my world. They are the best! Thank you for sharing.

Barbara says:

I love this!! I'm a huge dog person, but that cat curled up next to the little stuffed lamb is adorable!!

Angela says:

Thank you for putting Dexter's photos up! It made my Monday. Dexter is a real hoot and will talk to you constantly. I don't mind though because I don't feel like as much of a fool when I talk to him since he responds back! (as I'm sure the first commenter knows having a husky mix too!)

Love your site btw 🙂

Dexter is a total trip! What a personality, he practically SPEAKS.

Christina says:

That picture of Sprout is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
