Beards and Birthdays

Mom washed my beard this morning - not all of me - just my beard because I snitch a lot of apples outside and it was getting yucky she said!
After it was washed and combed we got the ruler out!

Guess what? My beard is growing again! yeaaaaaaaaaaaaa

It must be the apple juice that's making it grow! So now you all know my secret!The last time we measured it was 3 inches long and yes, I know that it's still damp and this could be considered cheating but it's one whole inch longer! So even when it dries, it has to be longer than it was, right? I can't believe that it's 4 inches long! Cool!

Mitch eats lots of apples too. Last time we measured him his beard was 1 1/2 inches long. His is growing too! He's now at just over 2 inches! So the apple juice is working for him too!

Do you know how hard it is to measure the beard of a playful puppy?!

This coming Sunday is my dad's birthday so mom and I are deciding how best to celebrate it.

Last night Mitch and I took dad to the Glennwood for a foot long hotdog and some fries and onion rings! We love pre-birthday stuff around here! Why wait till the actually day when you can have tons of fun leading up to the special day, right?

Missy and Jim will be here for oonie dinner and mom and I have decided that we're going to make a coconut cake, but we're not exactly sure which recipe we're going to use yet.

So Saturday morning, I'll be busy in the kitchen helping mom make dad's birthday cake plus Saturday, my parents are going to a pig roast (poor piggy) and mom has to bring an antipasto, so I'll be around lots of good food this weekend!

So until next time...................
Love ya lots,

Hey, no fair! I can't grow a beard! Tee hee...but sometimes after I eat, it looks like I have a food-beard and moustache on my face. I'm such a pig! Anyway, your beards look really good on you!

Hi Maggie, Hi Mitch,

Wow, your beards are growing like crazy. After reading about the apples, mom may keep me away from them, since she keeps my beard super short. he he he! Mmmmm foot long hot dog, fries and onion rings. Oh, I think I'm in doggy heaven. You guys are great with the pre-birthday celebrations. Can't wait to see what you do for the big day!

Your pal,

Joe Stains said...

wow nice beards! I had no idea that Apple juice makes your beard grow!!! Maybe I should try to grow one?!

How exciting that it is almost your Dad's birthday!!

Helios said...

Will apple juice make me grow beard as well? But my M says I drink very messily, so beard is a no-no.

Stanley said...

Maggie girl!

I have GOT to get ON IT. My beard is not growing at all. We'll have to try the apple juice therapy and see what happens. My beard was just under 3" when I first measured it, and it's just now 3".

You are going to be having yourself some good eats this weekend! Have AT IT!!

Give your dad some early birthday smooches from me.

Goober love,

Gus said...

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh no Maggie, that is bad news for me, I don't like apple juice. I'd better tell Willow though, she eats anything. Hmmm thanks for the tip.
Your beard is looking fabbo BTW. I need to get that measuring tape out to see if mine has grown.
Have a great time celebrating your dads birthday.

Hugs and tail wags,
Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

Persephone and Buster said...

Maggie, you're truly distinguished! The beard is like something out of the Rime of the Ancient Mariner ("Unhand me, greybeard loon!"). Betcha it'll be five inches long by New Year.

Sounds like the best birthday ever just ahead for your Dad--snarf some cake for us!

Seffie & Buster

umekotyan said...

Hay Maggie
It was surprised.
It measures it by the centimeter in length and Japan of the measure.
Therefore, I thought that it was 40 centimeters.
There cannot be such a thing.
Beards are four inches.

It seems to be happy on father's Sunday in the birthday. :)
Enough love is demonstrated in kitchen.

PreciOus said...

Hi Maggie,

Your beard sure is growing fast. I guess apples do work wonder. *Giggle*

Happy Birthday to your dad! Lots of good wishes to him! *Grinz*


Amber-Mae said...

Wow Maggie, your beard is growing everyday! You are right! Must have been the apple juice. Maybe I should eat alot of apples too so that I will start growing a beard like you. Harharhar! I'm gonna wish your daddy early, Happee Birthday Maggie & Mitch's daddy! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Rudy said...

I'm not allowed to grow any chin whiskers. If I look like I have hair growing long under my chin, out come the clippers!
Hey check out my blog -- we were at an agility trials in PA in early October and Mom got some pics of Airedales jumping things! They jump lots higher than me...


~Sweety~ said...


I cannot join in the fun... JJ snip off all my beard!!!!

I am so sad... I hope your beard grow faster and longer.

I am going to make JJ give me apple juice.

Lots of Love,

Scrappy and Pebbles said...

Your beard is looking great and your mom did a good job of measuring it too. Birthdays are such fun we once did a "Seven days of daddy's birthday" and it was such fun we gave him a present each day and mom did the poem and gave it to him on his actual day he still has it lol he was very touched by it. Hope your dad has a wonderful day.


Caz and Ludo the cool dude said...

Got a tip for your beard growing, I found eatting manure helps,especially if you get some stuck in your beard. Funny enough Caz does not like me rubbing my face in manure,don't know why.


wally said...

Whoa! That is just a totally awesome beard! I'm really impressed.

I am sure you will do some great stuff for your dad for his burpday! We're going to have coconut cake this weekend, too! Woo!


Anonymous said...

Good work with the beards - and apples are the best aren't they - I mustn't be eating enough of them though cos I don't have a beard at all!!


Suki & Joey said...

Maggie, I have a feeling you're gonna win this beard competition! You rock, girl! :)

My Mom says she understands how difficult it is to take pics of puppies. I don't know why she says that, I always pose nicely!

Puggy kisses

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That is pretty cool to get your beard measured.. Blue heelers don't have those so I am not really sure what it is.. Woof
I sure hope you had a great B-day..

Ruby Bleu said...

OMD look at your are so going to win!!! I mean, how could you not! Tell your Dad happy barkday and have fun baking!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Rudy said...

It's me again! Thanks for checking out my blog. Mom got the camera fixed up (memory card totally filled) so it'll work better. Whatever happened to snap the picture and go? (she's getting old you know)
Yes, that was the Montgomery trials, three hours from my house. It's so much fun. Mom says she remembers the Airedale raffle; in fact she bought some tickets at their table and thought she saw a quilt. There were several raffles going on for some nice stuff. Didn't win anything except a worker's raffle for a really cushy doggie bed. Now Clancy (my doggie Mom) has used it for a bathroom twice! Talk about getting old!


Bogart H. Devil said...

I bow to your superior beard-liness :)


Myeo said...

So that is the secret. Do you think if i roll myselfin apple juice, my hair will grow faster too?


Toby said...

Mojo, Digger and family said...

Maggie, you are pulling the most noble expression while having your beard measured. Classy lady!
