Part of the furniture: can you spot all the hidden dogs?


We’ve heard of pets looking like their owners, but what about pets that look just like their homes? Sofa and carpet specialists ScS have searched the country for the nation’s most camouflaged pets with a photo competition, and have revealed the ten best disappearing acts!

Maddie, a nine-month-old cockapoo from Nottingham was crowned the winner of the Part of the Furniture competition, after seamlessly blending in with the living room rug.

Maddie’s owner, Emma, comments, “Maddie is a playful dog who loves nothing more than playing in the ball pit and running around with her pals – oh and blending in with our living room rug! She’s very clever, although she often forgets her own name when there’s fun to be had!”

Emma and Maddie will receive a stay in a dog-friendly Best Western hotel for winning the competition.

The runner-‘puppers’ of the competition were also announced, including another rug-blending pup, Noodle, sporting the crushed velvet look!

Minnie the Maltese, also nicknamed ‘the albino Tasmanian devil’

As well as rugs, pets were also seen blending into cushions, like Barley the Italian Spinone who could easily be mistaken for one of the fluffy white throw cushions behind him!

Carl Randle, Content Executive at ScS, said, “These pictures prove that our furry friends can do a smashing job at blending in. I imagine some owners have to be extra careful when walking across the living room rug or sitting on the sofa.

“Not only are our beloved pets part of the family but it seems they are also part of the furniture!”
