Most Improved Beard Runner Up

The first annual beard challenge is officially over and I'm sure that the next time mom grooms me, my beard will be trimmed shorter so why not have some fun with it, right?!

In case you're wondering, mom found some moustache wax in our medicine chest and she wanted to see just how it would work and seeing as dad no longer has a beard and I do, I was elected!

How do you like the sweet curl at the end of my braid? Isn't it just too cute!!

This has been such fun! Many thanks to Stanley for organizing the beard competition and I'm sure that Dovah Doo has paused from his romping with Oscar and Harley and so many others and is looking down and smiling at all of us Terriers who are trying to reach his magnificent length of 8 inches!! You're still safe, Dovah!

Congrats to Buster, for the longest beard! Whooohooooooooo! Way to go, Buster at 5 3/4 inches! That's just awesome! Are you giving away any beard growing secrets?

Congratulations also to Molly for winning the most improved beard category! You must have been rubbing something in there, girlfren to get that beard to grow almost 2 1/2 inches in just 3 months time! Was it apple juice or something else! You can tell me - I can keep a secret!

Thank you to all the Terriers who entered - girls and guys! You made this all so much fun! I hope we can do this again next year! Maybe we need to start from right now growing out those beards!

So mom, maybe you'd best not trim mine if I'm going to ever have any chance of catching Dovah Doo!

So until next time..................

Love ya lots,

Hi Maggie, we like the braid in your beard. it's very classy with the curl on the end. Bailey has had a short beard in the past. being 1/2 schnauzer gives him the ability to grow one, but mom is not really a beard person, so she keeps it trimmed. you have a respectable beard and you can be proud of it.

Isis said...

Wooooooooooooow look at that beard! Its magnificent!

Mack said...

Mom thinks the first beard is very Salvadore Dali-ish. The second is very 1960 era hippie chic! Either way, you still look like a princess!

Randi said...

Holy Smoly! That's some long beard! Love the braids!

Love & Licks,

Gus said...

We have decided our favorite is version 1. It reminds us of our friend who is a CPA, wears three piece suits, and sports a 'stache that looks like your beard! He can be a hoot, at times.

kinda like you Mags


Seadra & Zoe said...

Wow, we really don't know what to think. A beard on a girl? Must be an airdale thing... us bostons and puggies know nothing about beards.

But hey, congratulations on runner up most improved.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Sparky said...

Snowball said...

Maggie, your beard is really nice. Can you ask your mum not to cut it?


Stanley said...

Maggsie Girl!

I LOVE your beard. (Don't let your mama hack it off... PLEASE!!!) You would definitely get the award for most creative beard rendition. Your beard is a work of art. (Your mama is also a little crazy, which is a good mix).

Goober love & smooches,

Patience-please said...

We can't believe that any beard is longer than yours! The whole notion of beards is a little, um, unsettling to us.
Unless whiskers count.

Molly and Taffy said...

Hello Maggie

We love the first photo of your beard. Well done for growing it to such a length. My beard didn't grow at all..sigh. Any tips would be most appreciated on how to get such a magnificent beard.

Amber-Mae said...

Oh Maggie, you are such a funny girl! I like it when it's braided... Congrats to Buster. Wow, her beard is sure loooooong! Congrats to you too for being the runner-up. Hey, why not Stanley come up with another type of competition so that other doggies who have no beards can join. What about the 'Longest Ears' or the 'Longest Tail'?

Love licks,

My mom was thinking about doing the same thing Maggie, but all she could find was her blue-colored pomade, and lets just say that I vetoed being "blue beard" (she's still snorting with laughter about that)...
