Mitch's Secret- shhhhhhhhhhh

Mom put up the family room Christmas tree!!!
We have 2 apple ornaments on it and mom can't get them to stay on the tree because of YOU KNOW WHO!She puts the apple on the tree and Mitch helps himself to it and takes it off! Mitch doesn't seem to realize that it's a fake! It's not even real! It doesn't even smell like a real apple! He doesn't care! He wants it anyway!
All of a sudden I glanced over at the Christmas tree and I noticed Mitch doing the strangest thing to the apple ornament and then I knew his well-kept secret to his rapid beard growth!

It's not apple butter after all! The secret is to polish your beard on an apple and it doesn't even have to be a real apple - it can be fake! How much easier can it get?!
So there you have it! The secret that all of us have been waiting to hear! So now on January 1st, when Stanley wants us all to measure our beards for his annual competition, all of our beards will be extremely long and we'll all be winners!
Thanks, Mitch! We all owe you, buddy!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Maggie said...

it may be the poisoned apple..*grin

how good is that :)

Willow the Black Dale said...

Oh Maggie & Mitch how I have missed you (mommy has missed you too I just know it).
A fake apple huh. I must got out on an adventure and get one. Would a real one work Mitch? Ahh maybe not I would eat it to fast. Not to mention beard had to be trimmed waaay down cuz my grandma up here in MI hates it when I greet her after I get a drink. What is up with that? Mommy Apache said to give her a towel and say "deal with, I am a dale" but mommy said "no we have to be nice to the grandma." Hooomans....
Smooches to you both,

Aniemother said...

I wonder if I'd look good in a long beard.. Purrhaps I should find an apple and try!


umekotyan said...

Good evening m & m.
The preparation at Christmas is perfect.
The decoration of the apple seems to be delicious.
However, m & m doesn't eat. :D

Putter said...

WOW! Maggie! What a neat secret! That is so coolest ever! I may have to try it! Given that ALL MY HAIRE was cut off, I need all the help I can get! Hee Hee!


Putter ...:)

Boo Casanova said...

wet wet licks


Gus said... you mean that Mitchie just took the apples and did not eat them. That boy needs a good talking to!


Patience-please said...

That explains why the apple is so shiny!

Amber-Mae said...

I hope Mitch doesn't decide to eat the apple ornaments too. Hehe! This year we won't be putting up the decos but we'll be dressing up as one. Haha! I'm gonna be a X'mas tree & the other two are gonna be presents. It's gonna be for the cards. And Mommy might be away for 3 whole months for a singing competition!!! Oh, what are we gonna do without her???

Winnie Woo said...

ooh thanks for sharing his secret Maggie. I want to know your secret for the shiny shiny fur! you both have been looking smashing lately.

the 4 Bs said...

that's a great secret to keep in mind if we ever want to grow our hair. do you think it will work on tails or mustaches?


Mango said...

I hope you find out Mitch's secret to beard growth. I'm worried that he's having you on a bit because he knows how jealous you are of his beard. Be careful he doesn't trick you into some foolish practices.


Asta said...

Gweat sleuthing on youw the playing field will be evened, hehehe
Mitch suwe does have a gowgeous beawd, but you have always had a pawsome one too
smoochie kisses

Murphey said...

Wow, it does look like a real apple, I think I would want it to,

Clover said...

Oh Mitchy, I hope you don't try to eat that apple! But that is a good beard growing tip!
Love Clover xo

Gucci said...

I heard Mom talkin' bout how she's gonna start feeding me apples to fill me up...especially after I snuck into her purse and hijacked my treats last night. Hehehehe...won't be blogging about that, don't want her to find out!


Lady Kaos said...

Wow, I never would have guessed the growth is from polishing!! Mom and Dad are talking about where to put the tree up this year. We aren't allowed to put it up until after Thanksgiving (the day after!!), but Mom and I are excited about decorating the new house this year. Mostly because we don't have to worry about overloading the wiring and starting a fire anymore!

Fred said...

Thanks for the beard tip!

Niamh said...

I had no idea how obsessed Mitch is with apples and I had no idea about their hair growth properties. I just like to eat chunks of apple. Your tree looks very pretty.

Your friend,

Mack said... I just gotta find a fake apple so my 2 whiskers will grow!!!

Petra said...

Well, now we all know the secret, and it wasn't so hard afterall!

We put Christmas lights in our house yesterday but haven't put up the tree yet.

Tis the season!!!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

He just thinks it is a ball to be played with..
Good luck in the contest..

Sophie Brador said...

A christmas tree already?! I usually take one ornament off the tree every year. I seem to forget those balls are glass. They break kind of easily.


Joe Stains said...

Of COURSE we don't have any apples in our house. Do you think it will work the same if I rub my chin on some limes???

Snowball said...

Woof! Mitch is really crazy for apples. Be it real or fake. I see that he has became a beard growing expert too.

Although I dun grow my beard but I think the growth of the beard is the same as growing of the fur and my fur grow really fast and jie jie says that it could be because I go swimming all the time so perhaps you can pick up swimming as a hobby too. You already have a very good trainer,Putter, staying near you. I am sure she won't mind giving you some lessons on that.


The Aphasia Decoder.... said...

You have a Christmas tree! I haven't had one of those in years because---well let's just say that Cooper never understood the principle of having a tree in the house.

That's funny about the apple.

Lacy said...

Homer said...

Missus wants to put up the tree now but Dad thinks it's too early. 'Sigh'... it's been a hectic week.


PS: Save me some apples, will you?

Chef said...

I've been wondering about that for months! Now I know Mitch's secret and why he loves apples so much. Now, I want to know if apples will make my tail grow back. Hmmm?


Lorenza said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
Now we all know the secret!
Do you think it will work on me??
Kisses and hugs

Kirby said...

My beard is so short (thanks to my Mom), so I'm going to hunt down an apple. Maybe it will finally make me beard grow ad grow!

Your pal,

happy said...

So that's the secret! Can't wait to see your long beard, Maggie!

Bae Bae said...

Woh.... Mitch, you think if I polish with an apple, I'll get a beard too??

Simba said...

Hi Maggie & Mitch!

You guys are so lucky that your Mom put up your Christmas tree early! We have been begging our Mom to put up our decorations but she hasn't yet. Hopefully soon! We can't wait to get into mischief!

Hollie and Janie said...

Ashley said...

Magical apples, that's what they are!

Munching on apples are waaayyyy better than mucnhing on wires! If only Chow Chow knows that!

Preston said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch,

I was hoping you would say the secret is eating the apples! (real ones, of course!)
I can wait to find out how long your beard will grow this year!

Doesn't that apple a day keep the VET away too? I guess not the fake kind, eh Mitch?


Moco said...

A secret unfolds. I wonder if it would help me grow a beard?
Nice gifts fro your birthday Mitch. Happy day to you.

Saint Lover said...

Brilliant idea Mitch... getting that beard polished and long with fake apples!
