Fill-in-the-Blank Friday

One of my favorite TV shows is Flipping Out. LOVE that show! Not only do I think Jeff is hillarious, but I can sadly relate to his OCD issues. But one thing that shocks me, especially since he has OCD, is that he lets his pets up on the furniture (and doesn't he have like 6 of them??). I've had pets before and I know how much they shed and how they can even have little bugs. So when I see his long haired cats walking across the stove, or sitting in the sink or lounging on the dining table when they're eating lunch, I'm grossed out! But then I started thinking, with animals becoming a bigger part of our lives than ever, maybe more people are allowing this than I thought.

So, the Fill-in-the-Blank Friday question is:

I certainly ________ allow my pets up on the furniture!

I dont allow my dogs up on the sofa..They have a few cozy pillows around the house to sleep on:)...I think they are happy with that...Kisses,darling:)
Happy Friday

I adore Flipping Out too! Jeff is a genius.
I DO allow my dogs on my bed and the couch.
Table top, kitchen area... no, no.

I don't allow my dogs on my sofa- and they are too big to even think about countertops/tables. But I do allow them to sleep in my bed with me. The way I see it, I wash my sheets, and only myself and my boyfriend are ever on my bed. I can't 'wash' my couch, and I'd hate for guests to sit on my furniture & get covered in animal hair when they are visiting! It may not make sense to others, but it works for me and my dogchildren. :)
Happy Friday!

Nope wouldn't allow them to. When I was younger they used to be all over my furntiture and I didn't mind. I don't have pets now though cause J's allergic so I'm kind of sensitive to all pet hair for that reason.

Happy Friday, love! xoxo

We used to have three cats and a dog. They were allowed on the sofas and beds. I didn't mind the pet hair back then but I think I might now... I don't know what we'll do when we get a cat (soon, I hope)...

Jude said...

Sadly, no pets allowed where we live now, but I have the worst dog lust these days! I volunteer dog sitting serves for free all the time! :) I used to allow dogs on couches and beds, but am rethinking it b/c of the hairy (albeit lovable) mess :)

Josie said...

I've never had a pet! Jealous of people with dogs... Love them.

If I didn't allow my dogs on the furniture then I would have to lie on the floor to snuggle with them!

We dog-sat my boss' pooch a few weeks ago; the little bugger climbed up onto our Euro pillows before we'd even gotten her leash off!

And she spent the next 5 days there, after which I thoroughly washed everything.

Grit and Glamour said...

DO! When I had them, they were on the sofa with me, in the bed with me...I'm a total sucker for my dogs.

This is a trick question. I prefer my pets to live outside. But, every time I open up your blog I wish I could cuddle up with that great dane on your banner and take a nap.

I have a really hard time with my pets on the furniture. Seriously if you came here you'd find all my livingroom furniture covered in white sheets. It's a sorry mess...Jeff has Zoila...I've got me. Sadly, no comparison in the cleaning department. Zoila for President!!

xoxo,

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

I must confess I don't play fair with my pets... I allow my cat on the sofa but my poor dog cannot even cross the line to the bedrooms area. she is so obedient she would never dare to sit on my furniture! Am I too bad? xo

Collette Osuna said...

Cute post!!
I DO allow....I cat a cute little orange cat (Dead ringer for Garfield,lol)...I cant control where he goes....I bet he runs for the sofa the minute I walk out the door!!

This post makes me miss my dog. We have a small apartment in the city, so I had to bring my Labrador over at my grandmother's where he has a bigger room to run :)

I'll be seeing him soon. And I think I might move over where he has bigger space to play :)

Oh and I would absolutely let him sit at the sofa :)

Claire Gibson King said...

I have 2 cats, so I can't really control what they do. However they are not allowed on any surface in the kitchen. My one cat Luna learned her lesson when she got too close to the stove and her whiskers curled up. (Well, maybe I was trying to teach her a lesson and I by accident put her too close to the stove!! haha)

Hege said...

Must say ... Yes, I sometinmes doo... And I have a dog like the one on your picture in this post... A Rodesian Ridgeback. They LOVE furniture. And love love love my couch.

KristiMcMurry said...

I do...I have a cat. I try not to let him up on the table and the counter, but as far as beds and couches, I don't mind.

Jen said...

Hege - You have one of those dogs?? You lucky girl! I want one :-)

Cassie said...

Both my pups are allowed on the beds and sofas, but they get yelled at for jumping on tables. They're definitely part of my family so we snuggle on the couch while watching tv :)
