If you’d like to send me photos to include in next week’s “pets on furniture” post, please ensure your photos follow my 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 then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to email@example.com PLEASE don’t send closeups of your pet! Thanks!
This is OJ on our master bed, making himself comfy on the pillows (my mom sewed the cases). If you look closely, you can spot his brother’s tail in the photo, too.

I wanted to send you a photo of my dog, Pickles, who snuck on set at our most recent Lamps Plus catalog shoot. He didn’t make it into the catalog, but the photographer was quick to snap this photo of him, and he’s enjoying his 15 minutes of fame. 🙂

My buddy Miles loves to travel with me and truly appreciates dog-friendly hotels with style. Here he is taking a nap in a boutique-style Westin hotel room.
Our puggle Hektor loves to visit my parents’ house. Not only do they live 10 mins from the beach– providing ample opportunity for running around like a maniac, digging to the center of the earth and eating seaweed– their living room features this uber comfy Shag Pouf from Calypso Home. (Shown in Navy in front of Restoration Hardware’s 1950s Leather Copenhagen Chair.) As you can see, Hektor has come to think of it as his personal pouf.

Noah and MegaCat are pleased that the arrival of fall means that the wood burner is getting used, MegaCat has made the Eames rocker his own but this evening he kindly shoved up so that Noah could join him by the fire warmth.

Attached are photos of Galahad the Irish Wolfhound, age 1, lounging on our chaise or couch. A lovable comedian that loves his creature comforts. He makes any piece of furniture look like it should be in a castle! Attached are photos of my dogs lounging on our chaise or couch. A lovable bunch of comediennes that love their home comforts. Galahad the Irish Wolfhound, age 1. Uther the Jack Russell, age 1. Merlin the Scottish Terrier, age 13. Maab the Scottish Terrier, age 2. Roger the Corgi x Heeler, age 4.
My cat, Marcus, liked to chew on my plants. The only way he could reach this one was to get on the back of the chair.
Love that Pickles who bided his time to be in the photo shoot. No iPhone snap for him.
Lynn, looks like you're a borderline animal hoader
I completely sympathize…what a hilarious crew.
What a great idea for a post! I'm currently searching my phone for a good picture to send.
MegaCat and Noah are adorable! Thanks to everyone for sharing!
A particularly darling set of pix: from the little tyke in the hotel to the group of ruffians on the red lounge furniture, it just shows that if you share your life with a pet, you share everything, and happy to do so.
Galahad is a superstar! Great to see him and his siblings here.
Once the animals outweigh you two-to-one, it's their house. And their furniture.
