Leaf? What Leaf?

What do you mean there’s a leaf on my woozle?

You can’t fool me, I’m a very astute dog who keeps his woozle meticulous at all times!

Obviously I would know if there was a leaf hangning from my face.

You can try, but you can’t trick me!


Woozle-less Wednesday

This is a sad Oskar face…

Why so sad?  I went to the groomer yesterday & they cut my woozle off!

There should be more beard (woozle) underneath my chin, but it’s gone!

They trimmed it all off & now my face looks nakie!  I hope Bella doesn’t see me like this.  What girl could love a woozle-less wonder on a supposed-to-be bearded doggie?


What’s In A Woozle

The term woozle is one I made up a technical term for a schnauzer beard.  Any dog with a good beard can use the term woozle.  My girlfriend Bella’s woozle always looks perfect. *sigh*

People often take pleasure in photographing the dreaded “sleep-woozle.”

Here’s a link to more woozle related posts for clarification.


Post Traumatic Woozle Trauma

Camera Critters
Friends, I can barely hold my head up. My once magnificent woozle has now been chopped to bits. Woozle is the ‘official’ name for a schnauzer beard.
My mom person keeps calling me the chinless wonder. She spent a long time on the phone yesterday with the groomer saying angry words at them. I’m glad she stood up to them, I loved my woozle. Now I am left with but half a woozle.
I fear that the lovely ladies Sally Ann and Sasha will no longer find me exceedingly handsome, but instead a hideous creature with a mis-shapen woozle.
Woe is me.
I will be spending my day hiding from mirrors, resting from the shock and trying really hard to squeeze my woozle to grow.

My Woozle!

Camera Critters

My mom person (who I’m not talking to right now) took me to the groomer today. *shudder*

I don’t like it there.

This how I used to look…


My schnauzer cut had grown out, but my woozle (beard), which schnauzers are known for, was fabulous.

Then the groomer. *shudder*


Mom, don’t take my picture!




All right, fine! Here’s a shot of my woozle butchering. It’s hard to see, but a big chunk has been removed at the middle of my nose. My mom person is mad because obviously this was a mistake & no one told her.


They just cut all of my hair off & half of my woozle. My mom person says it will grow back.

P.S. Thanks for all your comments about the hippities. I don’t try to eat them, but I try to pick them up with my mouth, I just want to play. Every time I pick one up I foam at the mouth & usually throw up. I keep looking for the hippity who will be my friend & not make me spit up.

Schnauzers are known for their woozles. Woozle is a technical term for our beard. (This is not to be confused with Heffalumps & Woozles from Winnie the Pooh.)


One of my boys, John, is trying to grow a woozle…I try to be encouraging, but it’s not really up to par.


Maybe if I give him a clear image of what a woozle is meant to look like, he can do better.


He can only hope.
