Peanut said...

I find your beard impressive. I don't have one at all.

Clover said...

Hi Asta!
Happy new year! Good luck with your entry in the beard competition. Your beard looks good! I don't have one at all...
Love Clover xo

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, thanks for showing your beard, I think it's pretty pawsome, especially for a nipper! J1 struggled for AGES to get my beard photo! In the end she crept up on me while I was asleep! J x

Hehehee! A beard competishun! Heheee! I'll enter Dilly fer a larf! HAHAHAAA! Oh this is so funny! Hehee!

Jan Price said...

That looks like fun. But none of us have a beard so you don't have to worry about competition from us.

We stopped by to ask if you have met Asta from Asta La Vista Baby in Austraiia? We came upon the blog by accident and at first thought we must have gotten lost because it was so familiar. Then we realized we got lost there once before right after we first met because we recognize the photos of Opy's mom.

If you haven't met, she is at astawft.blogspot.com

Ellie Creek Ellis said...

long dilly noses don't grow beards, you know better than that bob!

but i don't see one on you, either!

Duke said...

Two inches in nothing to sneeze at, Asta! You have a great beard! Mom doesn't have trouble getting a picture of mine with the ruler because I've done it so many times! hehehehe

Love ya lots,

Maya and Kena said...

Hey Asta,
Yes, it's turning out to be a scary storm!! Some of the trees in our neighborhood have fallen!! Luckily, they were small trees. But it's really scary because we can see all the plants, and trees swaying back and forth in our garden, and the wind hits the windows, making "thump thump thump" sounds!!
Hope it snows soon over there!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Mack said...

I think your beard is very feminine.
You should win an award for that!

Boo Casanova said...

Hi Asta
My treatie are on you!! Glad you didn't get groomed lately...I'm a little naked at this time...just got plucked.

Noah the Airedale said...

That's not a bad effort Asta. Good luck in the comp.

Hugs & tail wags

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
Don't worry! You know this contest is to pay tribute to Doovah, so, it doesn't matter if you don't have a long beard. Its just to be in and have fun with our friends!
Have a great weekend
Kisses and hugs

Patience-please said...

Asta if the contest were for cutest beard.. there'd be no contest!

We can't play unless whiskers count???

Koobuss said...


Good luck in the beard competition, Asta. I didn't enter because I didn't think that I had a chance. My beard is only about two inches. We little fox terriers can't compete against the big airedales.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Stanley said...

Astaroni, my sweetpea!

Your beard is gorgeous! If there was a competition for cutest nosey in a beard measuring photo you would win FOR SURE!

Your beard is definitely nothing to sneeze at. Mine started at 2 1/2 inches and I think it's shorter than than now. (I still won't let my girl brush me out to measure me).

Thanks for entering. I'll post your photos with the rest! (I think Dovah would be proud of your effort).

Goober love & smooches,

Maya and Kena said...

Hey there Asta!
Thanks fur worrying about our safety!! We'll take good care, we promise!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Amber-Mae said...

Your beard needs to grow faster Asta! Hey I got a tip here for ya. Tie something heavy on your beard & leave it there to hang fr a bout an hour a day. It will lengthen it. Trust me! And it will be straight too...

Love licks,

Wish I could play! I can't even grow hair on my belly ...which is where I could use some! Brrrrr!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are still working on the beard thing but I think it is hopeless. Blue heelers don't have beards!! Kind of like Dad and Toph they can't grow beards either just a little bit of dirt!!!!

Big Sloppy kisses

Jan Price said...

Oh, no wonder we thought we were confused, if Asta La Vista Baby is your twinny. So she's Asta down under and you're Asta up over. Pretty neat.

We added her to her list the other day and hope to get to know her better, just as we've been getting to know you.

That looks terrible to have your fur measured that is on your cute little face. I hope no doggie was hurt during this process.

Tesla and Hansel said...

Beard contest?! Whats a beard. Thats just crazy!

I wish i could grow one. But i can't!

Randi said...

Hi Asta! Thats some cool beard! Just dont shave or wax, OK! What us girlies do to please the boyfriends!

Love & Licks,

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

This looks fun! For those who have no beard, would whiskers do?

Joe Stains said...

Great effort Asta, it never hurts to try. Well maybe it hurt a little when you were being measured!
