There’s the Hungarian: big and bushy; the Dali, with narrow curved pointy bits pointing upwards.
There’s the English:
Or the Fu Man Chu
Or the handlebar
There’s even the freestyle. Which is any moustache that does not have a name.
The question is: which of this bewildering array of facial hair arrangements does our family dog sport?
We had a chance to experiment this evening. The disarray was almost too much. I called for the dog shampoo, the grooming brush and the scissors. Which Macaulay the family terrier does not see for months at a time.
You will see immediately that the world was our oyster moustache-wise. we could have had virtually any style,and I will own that the temptation to employ hair wax and give him a full English was almost more than a girl could bear.
However: having dismissed this, and the Fu Man Chu idea, and yes- the Dali – I settled for the usual.
A thoroughly respectable Neville Chamberlain.

Mighty fine trim you administered.
The perfect choice. He’s so handsome, and looks so pleased, he obviously takes great pride in his personal appearance.
He has been a bit more chipper since the cut. Maybe life was just one long bad hair day before.
He looks very respectable now. He just needs a monocle and a starched collar.
I shall see to it directly, Gale.
Mac looks ready to visit 10 Downing Street, or to at least pee on the lamp post outside.
Which he would do with aplomb.
Kate, I so want to cuddle him! He looks too cute 🙂
Cuddling is inadvisable, Tandy. Dog’s a biohazard.
If you catch him waving a “piece of paper” and making promises…..beware:)
Yes. That moustache will always have connotations, won’t it, Roger?
Such a handsome fellow- no matter what style he chooses!
I shall bear that in mind and experiment more in future 😀
My dog usually goes for the “Old Sea Captain” Which is a mustache and beard combo. She looks pretty sharp… I gotta say. 🙂
😀 Rita, oh, to see a photograph. Gives a whole new meaning to he term ‘The Old Sea Dog.’
Good thing mac is not a girl, eh? I think each one would suit him.
Yes, what does one do about girlie facial hair? Perhaps a preponderance of pink ribbons is in order.
Macaulay looks very handsome with his ‘stache trimmed. A good solid style, a la Tom Selleck.
I never thought of Selleck and Chamberlain having anything in common, Elizabeth, but now you mention it…
He is just adorable 🙂
…right up till you smell him.
😀 😀 😀
A trim fit for a head of state, or old chair.
Ha! Yes: it becomes him, I think.
What a sweet face that is! He does need to be cleaned up from time to time I suspect, with all that deer leg ambition of his! 🙂 Easier to wipe his face after a good foraging!
He does; and his face is much less, shall we say, prone to debris, now.
Bwahaha! No matter what you choose . . . he’s a handsome lad.
I’ve got another ghost post for you to savor:
I loved that one, Nancy. A real live possession story. Cracking yarn!
It had gone a bit out of control, hand’t it?
I see you have a sure eye and steady hand. I have been known to: ‘Too much off this side … oops, now too much off that side … oops, now …’ until there is nothing left!
I verged on that, Col. Dicey business, but the threat of ending up with a bald dog stayed my hand.
What a divine dog, I could hug him to death.He’s equal to my dog, well almost 😉
😀 I shall pass the compliments on , Brian, thank you.
How did you get him to sit still?
Well, now, I always thought Macauley was has handsome, but, he looks simply ravishing with his new trimmed look.
Thanks Penny 😀
He is so sweet, Kate.
Wise choice, Kate. Macaulay just looks adorable.
