Beard Update and a Pressie from Bogie

Mom was combing and styling my beard again today and this time she put one of her hand made Airedale barrettes on me! How do I look?

It's a teeny bit on the large size but it's an Airedale so it's okay, right!
My beard has grown another 1/2 inch! I'm now at 4 1/2 inches!
Sorry about the wet look but I was thirsty and had to have a drinky before the photo shoot!

Only 3 weeks to go and the beard contest will reach a peak! Can anybody beat my length? Get those rulers out and measure, measure, measure and report back to me and Stanley, okay?!

Mitch and I got a pressie in the mail yesterday from our Handsome Airedale friend, Bogie! Bogie sent us each a bandana! Aren't they just beautiful! Thank you so much, Bogie! That was so thoughtful of you!

Bogie's note says that he hopes we can tell which bandana belong to which one of us! We're checking it out to make sure that we guessed correctly! What do you guys think? Do I look better in pink or do you think that Bogie meant for the pink one to be Mitch's?!

You are such a great friend to us, Bogie! Thank you so very, very much!

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

Love ya lots,

Your beard is truly something we all can look up to. I think you look great in pink.

Persephone and Buster said...

Wow--A totally AWESOME beard! It looks quite handsome and reminiscent of those guys on the cough-drop box.

The bandana shots are priceless.

Noah the Airedale said...

Hey Maggie,
Willow & I will have to get the measuring tape out to check our beards. They look longer but not sure if they're as long as yours.

Hugs and tail wags

Bogie sent you and Mitch very nice bandanas.

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh Archie has run off to go measure his!! You both look so cute in your bandanas!! Are you getting ready for the big Nor Easter??!! It's coming!!!!! Love A+A

Kirby said...


Your beard is looking loooong! I think you are gonna win. Your bandanas from Bogie are so cool. You are pretty in pink, so I think it was the one for you. I hope Mitch wears his proudly!

Your pal,

Ruby Bleu said...

Maggie, your beard looks pawsome!!! You know I love my Stanny, but I think you just might win!!! Oh and those bananas look great on you both!

Joe Stains said...

I am so stinkin jealous of your beard!

Patience-please said...

Wow. Your beard is... wow. We don't have any beards, but we have some whiskers that tickle. Wow. We are very impressed in a scared sort of way. That is hair-o-licious and a half!
cute bandanas too.

Amber-Mae said...

Oh, I think you can win Maggie! It's really loooong... So once the competition is over & the winner is announced, is your mom gonna slice it off after that? I bet it gets wet & mushy all the time when eating & drinking. You both look great in your bandannas!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Superb beard you have there Maggie. I will have to get mine measured soon, but alas, I don't think it has grown very much recently.

Your bandanas are stunning too, you look great in them.

You have a really nice beard! My dad used to have a beard too, but I took more after my mom, so I don't have a beard

Woofies, Alex

In the contest of the beard, is it a truck?
Does the answer apply for reindeer's change at Christmas?

from loved ume tyan

Isis said...

i bet i could beat you at beard growing... if i had a beard....

Unknown said...

Oh My! I really like the beard shot! I can't believe you are up to 4 1/2 inches! Mom is going to have to go buy a new ruler so she can measure mine...

Ha ha! Mitch in a pink bandana!


ps my 2nd birthday is december 21.

Nat said...

I'm pretty sure you'd whip Pappy in an undoctored beard contest. 4.5 inches is no small accomplishment.

Putter said...

Hi Maggie! Hi Mitchy!

Coolest ever bandannas! Maggie! I think you are gonna win on the beard front!!!!!! :))))))

Your Friend,

Putter ...:)

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Maggie, you look cool always, whatever you wear and your beard is totally amazing. I never thought I would love a gal with a beard, but hey, you are some chick with a beard I can tell you. You do my Marvin Heart good just to see you posing!

Oh and YAY! Big excitement we got your Christmas Card today! How cool is your picture on that card? Thank you so much, now I am going to let Jeannie comment in the next comment..........

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Hi there Maggie and Mitch!

and your Mama!

We posted a card out to you on Monday, it was the last posting date for aire mail to the US, so it was all a rush (as usual!)

I could not get the Labrador card I wanted or the one of our home town cos the shop was closed....... ;0)

so the one I sent has Westies on it.....

but then I visited three, THREE, post offices and the queues were seriously out of the door to get the card weighed and stamped.

So hubby, Keith, said, well I have some stamps, lets guess how much it will be to post so they get it in time.......

Now I will be so darn embarrased if it was not enough stamps on the card........!

Please forgive me, I hope you get it ok without having to pay any darn surcharge....we put what I had paid last week for a card airmailed to Australia, and a wee bit more1

Well, our thoughts were there! The UK is just silly there are so few post offices and so many people wanting to use them.

Now gone for the record as the longest comment ever I think!

Love and light to you all, Jeannie xxxxxxxxx

Unknown said...

Maggie you've totally got me beat!! Dad dropped me off at the groomers a couple of months ago and didn't tell them about the competition! I am a sore sore loser :)

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That is a very nice bracelet and we don't think it is to big. It is just beautiful on you.. We really like the bandana's too. I don't think Louie or I will look good in pink...
big barks... Louie and Gus

Finni said...

Pink definitely suits you, Maggie. I'm really impressed with your beard! Is Mitch growing his too? He looks cool in his bandanna.

Finni xx

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Wow, Maggie! Your beard is soooooo long! I'm rather jealous! J x

Stanley said...


It looks to me like Mitch is totally interested in your neck. Did you get any landsharking from him on the photo shoot? (You look very perty in pink, girl!)

I think that I am personally out of the beard contest. Stella has pulled so much of it out already. We'll do an official measurement this week. I have to say that I AM IMPRESSED with your beard, and a little bit envious too.

Goober love,

Mojo, Digger and family said...

Woweee! What a beard! You are going to sweep the board, girl!

What I want to know is how come you allow a ruler to be held up to your chin UN-MUNCHED. I'd have turned that into lots of very short rulers in a matter of seconds. And I have a sneaky suspicion Mitch would too. ;)
