Monday’s pets on furniture – part 2

Posted on Mon, 8 Feb 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…and your pet happens to be sitting on it). And second, the photo must be of decent quality. If it’s REALLY dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos can be sent to desiretoinspirekim[@]hotmail[.]com and PUHLEASE don’t send me closeups of your pet!!!)

Hi, this is my sheltie, Elvis, on my newley recovered gray velvet sofa. I would say they are equally beautiful.

This is my friend Jackson , he likes to breath through his nose. 😉

Here’s another on of our Tottenham. BTW — this series has inspired my own blog starring Tott. It’s a bit unconventional (like the tub), it’s our shower bench. But couldn’t resist sending. Happy Monday!

Here are three pictures of our beloved Cocker spaniel, Charlotte. She is the star of our house!
– Laurent and Marie from Belgium

“‘Mom could you please bring our sunglasses?’ Rudy and Chloe are happily having their morning sun on the patio in Arizona.”

Thought this might be fun

Here is our Homer basking in the sun.

McKenzie, my Old English Sheepdog, likes to test out different pieces of furniture.
– Carol

Barber, our half Basset Hound-half Australian Shepherd puppy is much too big for this garage sale find of a chair now, but he still loves to squeeze himself in there!  (And no, he didn’t chew that arm up; it came with some vintage “character” already!)
– Stefani

Had a huge party this weekend for my birthday.  This morning my doggy was irresistible and I had to take some pics to send in.  He is just a little mutt dog but to me he is the cutest thing in the world!
– Nataleigh

This is our baby Malo. He loves ice cream, meowing while everyone sleeps and jumping on furniture he’s not allowed to be on. He’s a total sweetheart just like his daddy.

I wanted to send you pictures of my Weimaraner Cooper. He absolutely rules the household, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. We always say he’s lucky he’s so pretty because it gets him out of a loads of trouble. I bought the chair he is sitting in years ago in college (for $20!) with the intentions of recovering it. I fell in love with the bones of it and see its great potential. Unfortunately for the chair, so has Cooper. Its amazing watching his 70lb. body curl up in it like he’s a cat. He sits there every morning in the corner of my bedroom while I get ready for work.”
– Mandy

Here are photos of my French Bulldog Gromit at his “Aunt” Lindsey & “Uncle” Dave’s Loft in Philadelphia over the Holiday’s. My mom and I were the only one’s up early in the morning (besides Gromit the Frenchie), and as we were drinking our coffee and talking, he kept trying to look out the window (he loves doing that at home like a cat!), but he obviously can’t reach here since it’s a huge loft window. He was making us laugh so I grabbed my camera, what came out of it were some great photos of Gromit on their leather couch in the sunshine.

I’m from Nashville, TN…this is my British Yellow Labrador, Buck in my fathers office.  He is NOT allowed on this leather chair but my father was out of town this day.  He’s too cute to say no to.”
– Jordan

I am attaching a photo of Fiona, our lovely Llewellin Setter.  She is a very rare breed that originally hails from Wales, UK.  Llewellins are very closely related to English and Gordon Setters.   We adopted her so don’t have a lot of info about her history.  We are so happy to have found her though, as she has been an amazing dog.  Very affectionate, friendly and playful.  And, as you can see has made herself right at home.  We live in Toronto, ON.
– Carol

My 9 year old daughter and I love your feature each Monday. She has been dying to contribute pics of her hammie “Elisabeth” (aka, the Great Hambini–she escapes!) but because she is so tiny (Chinese dwarf hamster)it has been hard to get a good pic.
– Mari Anne

I know it’s a little dark but… This is Maxzilla (Max for short) doing his favorite thing in my favorite chair 🙂
– Stephanie

This is my dear little rescue cat, Eva Peron, taking a nap on “her” brown faux-suede tufted bench, aka. Klic-klac.  We were in the process of moving, but despite the junk around her, she was determined to sleep. Move over Audrey plate.”
– Liz

To totally join in on the fun, I thought I’d submit pictures of my babies on the furniture. This first photo is of Ella Fitzgerald, our 9 month old American Bulldog.  She’s sitting on our white slip-covered sofa. Normally, I don’t keep a blanket on it, but I had just washed the slipcovers and lately, the dogs have been sneaking up on it.
– Carissa

I’m FLORA (a cat) from Argentina.
– Gabi

Okay, Zia the longhair chihuahua isn’t ON the furniture, but she would be if she could jump. This corner of my dad’s house features furniture from the sorely missed Bombay Store.
It looks like a loveseat, but actually it is the Great Dane’s Bed.  Luci snoozes and lets the chihuahua Suzie Quzie perch on the back.

Cindy is the dog of my niece. She spends a few days holiday in my house and took the opportunity to relax on the couch.
Cindy é a cachorra da minha sobrinha.Ela passa alguns dias de férias em minha casa e aproveita para descansar sobre o sofá.

Meet Austin Mini-Cooper,  our “Office Mascot” & guard dog at CCS Architecture, a boutique architectural firm in San Francisco. After a long day at the office, Austin reminds us all how important it is to relax.

This is my nephew, Bocifery (Bo for short).  He loves laying on the arms of the couch and chair and he looks soooo cute doing it!
– Jillian

I was taking pics of my Dog Chuy for my blog- but he doesn’t like that, and he will make faces at me to make me stop. He’s 13 now, and he’s been doing for years. The chair was an auction find for 7 bucks.  He likes it because of the southern exposure.
– Lori Jo

We ( my wife Wendy and I) live in a two bedroom apartment in Mascot, Sydney. We live there with Molly. Molly is a maltese and is eight years old next week.  From ‘her’ spot on the bed, we can watch as we go about the house hold chores. Along the way we’ve learnt that It’s one thing to have nice home but what really makes it special is the people and the pets that live there. They give it is essential quality – life. A quality no amount of decorating can improve upon.
– Bob

Here is a picture of my cat “Mignonne” (French for cute/sweet little thing) sitting on her favorite IKEA Poang chair.  She has claimed that chair to be hers ever since the furniture arrived.
– Rebecca

Here two pictures of our dog – Mona. She loves this spot in the sun…
– Gal

This is our labrachowchow mix Paulie, or Miss P. She refused to turn around for the picture…might miss something : )
– Emily

This is my dog Stacy, she is a staffordshire terrior/husky mix and this is her favorite spot in the house besides our bed.
– Michelle

This little Abbey on our sofa, which has been deemed hers since we no longer really use it anymore. Abbey used to weigh 130 lbs when we adopted her and probably could not have climbed up on this sofa 2 years ago! We love her so much! (We believe her old owners kept her in one room with a consistently full bowl. She has lost a total of 57 pounds and is a happy, healthy baby now :))
– Maddy

That’s Monalisa, one of my 4 persian cats!
– Pat (Brazil)

 

This is LuLu The Cat , Patches our beagle and Charlie our terrier mix. We adopted all our pets through our local shelter. One exception was LuLu my husband and daughter found her in the middle of the street at just  four weeks.

I’m an architect from São Paulo Brazil, and I just couldn’t resist sending you the pics of my 1 meter Maine Coon cat! His name is Whiskey, and he just loves to sit-sleep-walk all over things that don’t belong to him! So I’m sending you some pics of him on my pillow, and getting ready to jump on my 3 legged chair!
– Bethliss

I’d like to submit my darling Grendel for ‘pets on furniture’. Grendel passed away suddenly last Sunday of a blood clot, he was a very healthy and frisky boy up until that day (the photo of him on the fridge was taken a week before he died). My sweetheart and I are very grateful for the seven great years we had him.
– Rebekah

These photos are of Griff on the upstairs leather sectional- where he technically is not supposed to lay. But he’s so darn cute, I let him. 😉
– April

Our dog Diesel likes to jump on every table we have in our house – but every time I seem to get the camera out to take a photo of him, he jumps off! The first photo is as close as I could get (this is our lovely dining table made from an old antique door that my Dad made for us). The second photo is his other favourite spot curled up on the end of our 3 seater couch!

this is belikin. clearly, he is goofy.”

“My Norfolk terrier mix, Hank Jr. loves hanging out with his buddies.
I thought you might like this shot of Hank’s LA “cousins”, my best friends dogs, Luis, Norm & Vito.
Last pic. Hank hanging with his LA cousins on their lovely Ralph Lauren chairs.”

– Leah

Here is my greyhound mix, Sammy, fast asleep on “his” sofa. It is an antique I inherited and in the (perhaps futile) hope of keeping it nice I’ve laid towels on it to protect the upholstery.
Beth

This is my two-year-old longhair dachshund Bodhi.  He’s a double dapple and has one blue eye and one brown eye, but it always comes out looking strange in photos.  What’s funny about this is a put him in this chair just for a picture.  He’d never seemed to notice the chair prior to this, but now I can’t seem to get the dog OUT of the chair.  As you can see from my dog and my furniture, I’m quite a fan of the color brown.
– The Levins

This is my Harliquin Great Dane, Artimis, who thinks this wicker loveseat is HIS!  Even when someone is on it…he’ll crawl up and sit on them as if to say ‘This is MY seat, thank-you!’
This is my female brindle Great Dane, Ursula!  On rare occasions when Artimis leaves the loveseat….Ursula jumps on the opportunity to get on it, too!  They ‘LOVE’ this loveseat!!
One is of my black cat, Scout, with Ursula on the bed.

– Missy

Here is a pic of my black lab/basset hound dogs Roscoe and Bo on a couch in my store in boston.
– Danielle

This is my 10 month old Westie Myles. And yes he is more important than my Henredon leather sofa.
– Natalie
  

I’ve attached a picture of my daughter’s cat that I hope you will consider for your Monday pets on furniture post.  I decided not to photograph the whole settee that Ben is on because it was a Montreal street find (the furniture not the cat) and is damaged and kind of ugly on the bottom and left side.  Anyway I thought the black cat on the red velvet looked cool.  Hope you think so too.

Lucy’s favorite position for nylabone chewing is half on – half off the ottoman to my Saarinen womb chair. Some may be outraged that I let this happen but I finally just accepted that I live in Lucy’s house, she doesn’t live in mine.
– Laura

I couldn’t resist sending you a shot of 5-month old Boomer on my favourite chair – a garage sale find if you can believe it! (the chair, not the cat 😉 There is a matching table that I use as a vanity in our bathroom. The gold tones really pop against our white walls. Thankfully, the fabric on the chair has not been appealing to Boomer’s claws… yet!
Kristi

Milo was free, and this wonderful chair was only $10 (first image).  Since then, the chair has cost me $400 to completely re-do (second image) after her love for it made the white trim dingy and the foam pillows flat, further, she chewed off the back corner, and Milo has cost me… well, she’s priceless so we won’t embarrass her with the figure.
Ann

Some pictures from me again, love your pets on furniture 😉 Also a cat in the wintergarden on a bench 😉

Here are photos of my dog Miro and my cat Paprika on the living room sofa. No wonder I have dog and cat’s hair all over my clothes! 😉 In the first photo: Looks like something is happening outside…! In the next one: Relaxing time!
– Danielle


Here is our puppy Abbie on her very favorite spot – one of our living room chairs.  The chairs were handed down from my great-grandparents and we recovered them before adopting Abbie.  We love how she matches the fabric so perfectly!

Sorry for flooding your inbox. Sending pictures is hell with a University e-mail account!

Here are a few shots of Cheyenne, our 3-year-old, dark brindle, retired racing greyhound on our ancient Ikea Tomelilla couch.
– Monica

This is my pet on furniture
– Tzippi

The pets on furniture section always makes me smile and I’ve wanted to submit photos of my Shih Tzu, Nikita for some time. The snag in my plan? Nikita dashes away whenever her radar picks up a camera in the room. Here are some paparazzi shots taken while she was napping in a Pottery Barn chair she rarely lounges in.
– Reese

One picture is from several years back.  We find Trofast storage units are handy for storing so many things….miscellaneous toys, books, pets and even children! The other picture is of our now much older doggie Guinness on an even older Jacques and Hayes chair.
– Sarah

The first photo is of my dear Lady Stardust (aka: Monorail) on what was a heck-of-a-deal 3 piece living room set, beside my favorite vintage lamp. The other is my little man, Ziggy Stardust, on our barn wood table which I found road-side in downtown Toronto. See the cookie jar? His catfood. Both of these pics were taken on Ziggy and Lady’s FIRST BIRTHDAY! As you tell, it was quite the party 😉
– Vikki

I have sent you a picture of my cat, Fat Albert on this same couch before, but here is one of 3 of my pets all on the couch together.  (l-r: Abby, Peach, and Fat Albert– all rescue animals).
