It's All About the Beard

Today is measuring day for all who have entered, or would like to enter the First Ever GooberStanian Beard Growing Contest, in honor of my dearly departed (and very well-bearded) friend, Dovah Doo.

Wasn't he a handsome guy?

There are 2 categories ~ Most Improved Beard (had to register previously for this one), and Longest Beard. If you would like to be considered for the prize in either category, please peemail me (see the sidebar where it says "peemail me") today after measuring your beard, and attach a photo of your beard to the peemail. If you are entering for Most Improved Beard, please include the original measurement you took back in October along with the current length of your beard.

This is a shot of Dovah Doo's luscious and juicy 8 inch beard just before he went to the Rainbow Bridge. Don't let that intimidate you, pups.

You may enter 1 or both categories. Winners will be announced by January 5th, and don't forget. There will be prizes for each winner!

If you want to read the backstory behind this contest, you can do that here.

Can't wait to see your photos! May the best beards win!

Good luck & Goober love,

Whoa--I'm pretty darned impressed with the Dovah do! I, alas, am beardless, though my white chin is a wonder to behold in its own way.


Bogart said...

Well I know I won't win (I got the short end of the stick, furnishings-wise and have never been able to get a really luscious one going) but I'll have mama take a picture of me tonight just so the winners have something to compare themselves to!


Koobuss said...


My beard is 2 inches long or slightly more. I know that's not very impressive.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
