Here’s yet another way in which Beverly is unique among all the dogs we’ve had: she alone has a couple of ridiculously long hairs growing above her eyes. I suppose they’re technically eyebrows, but they’re so much longer than other specimens in that class. They’re more like eyewhiskers. She only has a handful of the super-long ones per side, and they’re not easy to photograph. Nonetheless they give her a special look (half geezer and half intentionally disheveled Hollywood starlet?)
Here’s another view:
As if not to be outdone by her, Tucker these days appears to be impersonating a dalmatian. His head and ears are covered with black spots; they make him look disreputable. We know why: he goes out to the fig tree and rummages around, looking for tasty morsels, and the fig juice drips on him. Bathing him is definitely on the agenda for this weekend.
