Yep, except for my recliner and desk chair. Erp is the only one who has to be forcibly removed from my desk chair, as the dogs dont fit.
I SSH'ed into Mordor.

Yep. Get down when asked, don't eat greasy bones on the couch (which he needs to be reminded of constantly) but pretty much whenever he wants whatever he wants he's allowed on.

However, when we visit guests, i try very hard to inforce the "only if you're invited" rule. Usually it works as far as couches, beds are another story. He thinks they're all his.

They also have their own couch to destroy as they see fit. And a futon with dog beds on it. They do have to get down immediately if asked but they are allowed up at will.

Buser is allowed on my bed, Mac isn't even allowed in my room. Harry is allowed in my room and on the bed if invited. Sophie is allowed in my room but not on the bed.
That just breaks down to who Buster will tolerate on the bed/in the room, who desttoys my room ever time there in there and who is happy to get on the bed and just leave Buster alone.

Couches, Mac is allowed on but no-one else. i don't agree wiht this logic, I really think Mac should get kicked off like everyone else. She jumps over the back, she sleeps and stands on the arm rests, she tries to take my spots, and she's only allowed on because she's smaller. Which annoys me.

Outside cahirs they are all entitled to, the blue boys love them.

Elliot has run of everything, even the kitchen benches if he can get away wiht it/

I tried to not let Django on the furniture, but Ryan wanted him there and I saw that he (Django, not Ryan) wasn't the type to challenge me, so he is allowed wherever. When I get the Mal girl, I am going to see how she is and go from there.

Sort of. My Dad invites Winston up sometimes, but we prefer not to have the dogs on the couch. There's not enough room for everyone and my mom and I are mildly allergic to dogs, and having Doberman and Rottie hairs on the couch can be very irritating because of that.

No and yes.
There's a "dog futon" in the basement which Pit can go on, but he doesn't use it too much. As soon as I move and trash the futon, he will not be allowed on anything.
There's no reasoning behind it, I just really don't like dogs on my furniture.

Yep they are all allowed on the furniture (that is why it is called fur-niture ) But when we had Alex (125 pounds of very hairy dog) he was not allowed on the furniture. But with little dogs even when all 5 are on the couch, there is still room for a human or two.
