Hipster envy...

Can you see anything wrong with how I look in this photo Gail took just over a week ago, when we went for a walk in the snow?

No me neither, but according to Gail, the fact that my beard was long enough to have icicles suspended from it was a Bad Thing.

Now if I had been allowed to accompany Gail on her business trip to London a few days ago, I could perhaps have taken the Tube to the hipster Mecca of Shoreditch while she was attending her boring meetings, and my luxuriant beard might have been given a special professional styling (e.g. look carefully at the beard pictured below...)

But no, instead I have had to put up with Gail's amateur efforts with the pinking shears, leaving me almost bereft of my signature facial fuzz...


  1. I like both variations... and you have something like a rockstar with that long beard... maybe zz-top needs a new band leader?

  2. We thought it was your hidden eyes!! We didn't even notice anything about your beard...icicles melt.

  3. I finks the icicle look is really cool!
    Oh and tell Gail, next time she comes to London you should come and join the puppy creche in Mum's office while Gail enjoys her boring meetings

  5. I'm thinking you are just wearing that beard thing as a disguise, and it is really Prince Harry under that fuzz.

    Good dog, Bertie lad, you wouldn't really want an otter crawling over your chinny-chin-chin, would you??? I think you now look very... aerodynamic. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  7. Humans really are impawsible sometimes.

  8. A decent beard has long been the number one must-have fashion item for any fugitive from justice.

  9. I think even after Gails grooming attempt you closely resemble some "Hipster Wanna Be-s" here on in the Pacific Northwest!

  10. Bertie we are very sorry you didn't get to go to London...shhhh word has it Gail went somewhere you wanted to go....however, we are glad you didn't visit that trendy groomer.
    Your WFT furs are glorious as they are even when Gail gets to them
    Hugs madi your bfff

  11. Bertie - The next time there will be a visit to the dog store on Wigmore Street for treats and toys. I'm sure.

  12. What an interesting beard that fellow has. We think you look handsome no matter what

  13. That's a crazy beard that fellow has. Seems like it might be kind of itchy.

    My assistant occasionally tries to trim the fur around my face ...and I usually end up looking pretty silly.

  14. We think the beard is fine butt we did notice you had no eyes in that furst photo!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  15. OMD.....NOOOOOO!!!!! Oh dude, sorry abouts the beard. Boy, do I knows the scary thingies that can happen when the peeps get the scissors out! There is always an 'ooops!' around here.....good thingie you ended up lookin' good!
