Dogs on Furniture

If I had a dog, she or he would have to stay off the furniture, sorry.

But dogs on furniture (couches mostly) do look darn cute -especially when they fit into the color scheme! And who knows, maybe they even appreciate the coastal touches! So just for the fun of it, dogs on furniture for our amusement. There is, of course, a little bit of decor inspiration in this too. Via Traditional Home.

A lovely ocean blue porch seen at Connecticut Cottages and Gardens. And a Straw Hat purposely (?) placed to complete the beachy summer look.

The good thing about Glass Floats with netting is, they stay put. Or make rope coils to keep them in place, see More Decor Ideas for Glass Floats. Via Traditional Home.

dog on couch
Here's the pooch that got me started on this dogs on furniture post. Adorable! I think doggy and coral are the same size. But guess what the theme is here - Wall Stencils. And have you seen the post Artificial / Faux Corals for Decor?

The blue and seagrass room is my fave! I do let my babies on the furniture. That is why it's called FURniture! :D LOL!

Dogs...my house was filled with them this weekend. (I had some of my "grand-dogs" staying here) As much as I tried to keep them off the furniture, I would turn my back, and there they were...in the recently vacated chair...on the sofa... Oh well, that's why I have slipcovers!

Funny Basset Hound. I bet he's suppose to be on the chair/ottoman at the end of the bed ;)

Della, that is funny. I never saw the fur in furniture!

The bassett looks the sorrowful way bassets do! Love it!

I love the beach and I love dogs! I have to keep a throw on my couch for my little granddog, there's absolutely no way to keep her off the couch. BUT, it is a beachy throw for sure!

Maya, thanks for all the birthday wishes, everyone just made my day incredible special!

Try to keep our brood off the sofa! The t.v. room one is theirs and for the most part they stay off the living rooms ones thank goodness!

Too cute but my dog sheds so much that I'm glad she doesn't get on the furniture:)

Aaaaaw....This has got to be one of the cutest blog posts on any site EVER!!! I love doggies!

I especially love the Basset - we had one ... he passed away last July...almost looks just like him...

I want to give all those doggies a big hug - they are the BEST accessory!

Thanks and hope you're having a wonderful week!
