    Default whiskers?

    I don't know why I didn't see this before, but I noticed that many of the bullies pictured on here don't seem to have whiskers? Henry has a face full. Do some bulldogs not have whiskers or is it just that they don't show up on some peoples photos? Here are two pics of Henry's face. The first when he was younger, and the other more recent. Now that he is older, he is even more "hairy". Is this normal?

    My Harlea has wiskers. Hers are just short and white so you can't see them in pictures.

    Annie...you are as cute as your Henry [replacer_img] All older bullies ARE hairy.
    If not, they've been groomed off!

    Haha Henry is so cute! Gia has them, they are short and a little curled at the ends. Im sure they don't show in her photos since she is white tho.

    @Texas Carol @aprilemari OMG, I had no idea! It never occurred to me that they get trimmed or groomed off! I know if I touch Henry's whiskers, he closes his eyes. I figured they were there to let him know to close his eyes if something got too close, like when he plays outside and runs through the flowers and bushes, lol! I think I'll leave Henry's whiskers intact. I think he needs his Thanks for letting me know they all have them. I feel silly now for not knowing that some cut the whiskers off. Learn something new every day, lol!

    Annie, I learn new EVERY DAY too and actually, I think you are right...dogs & cats too,
    have use for their whiskers. Cami HATES outdoors and I'm allergic to sunlight (only owned
    T-Top & Covertible when dxed, can you imagine) so we make a perfect pair!

    I think all bullys have whiskers, mine do. Some do trim them for shows, but I don't. I like my men rugged that way

    @RiiSi Ha!ha! RRRRRRRRRugged! Yes, Just about all show animals are shaved and groomed! Horses,donkeys,llamas.....And all dogs that I know of have whiskers-you are right, they act like "feelers". Like "curb feelers on a car!"

    “It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
